As the summer temperatures continue to rise we are inspired to make frozen treats to try to beat the heat. I have at least three or four in mind right now, but I know I have to pace myself. Ice cream O.D. is not a good thing. Green & Black’s sent me a few bars of their chocolate to try a while back. I love chocolate so much that it was hard not to just devour them immediately. I admit, I ate the milk chocolate almond bar all by myself, a little at a time. I used one of the bars of white chocolate to make Green & Black’s White Chocolate & Blackberry Cupcakes and the other in this ice cream. I didn’t melt the chocolate, I just chopped it fine to give a little texture to the ice cream. Packed with white chocolate bits and diced strawberries, it made for a decadent frozen dessert. This would be a really great addition to the upcoming Fourth of July celebrations. Ice cream is fun to experiment with and I think you will like how this one turns out!
