Yesterday I shared my recipe for No Churn Carrot Cake Ice Cream and today I used that delicious ice cream, dipped it in chocolate, and made bonbons. These little balls of deliciousness are the perfect Easter treat to serve your little ones after Easter egg hunting this weekend!
Carrot Cake Ice Cream Bonbons
- 1 cup Carrot Cake Ice Cream
- 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1 tbsp vegetable shortening
- Easter themed sprinkles
- Scoop 6 balls of ice cream onto a parchment paper lined plate.
- Cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer until firm, about 6-7 hours.
- In a medium bowl, add chocolate chips and vegetable shortening.
- Make a double boiler by placing the bowl on top of a saucepan filled with 1 inch of water.
- Bring to a simmer over medium low heat and stir until melted.
- Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
- Now the fun part- hold each ice cream ball with a fork over the bowl of chocolate and spoon chocolate over the top to cover.
- Hold over a plate and add some sprinkles then set back on the parchment lined plate.
- Repeat with remaining ice cream then place back in the freezer until ready to serve.
Happy Easter, friends!
