Silence... and chocolate

Chocolate Ice Cream


I'm not in the mood for recipes or small talks today.
Longing for a moment of silence, but nothing to do unless I wait until after a certain hour at night, and even then interrupted by "Mommy, where's my bed?" Darling, you're sleeping in it.
Fear of antibiotics and love for cough syrup ("When a kid is sick, she has to take her syrup"), it's all part of growing up, right? And how to calm the moodiness of a 4-year-old, forced once again to stay at home with bronchitis (once more, only a bit worse than last time) if not making a chocolate treat she's been begging for for several days? And don't say "what a great mom", she had to ask me for it for a week or so.
I'm trying to pull on my side making strawberry ice cream, white chocolate yogurt ice cream with raspberry swirl, but no, they all ask for chocolate ice cream, so there you go.

What better opportunity though to try out my new ice cream moulds. Super easy with super wow effect, and much better than storebought.

Chocolate Ice Cream


Really easy: prepare your favourit ice cream (Chocolate Ice cream in this case), freeze it in the ice cream machine and then fill the moulds. Insert the wooden sticks and then freeze in the freezer until hard. Unmould and dip or cover with melted chocolate (I used milk, dark and white chocolate) that will harden almost instantly when meeting ice cold ice cream. Put back in the freezer for half an hour or longer and your kids can enjoy, but who says you can't enjoy, too  ^__^ ... and have your moment of silence.
Have a great day and a great weekend.

  16. Dajana, thank you very much!!! I thought you are going to post this beauty on your blog and wasn't expecting to find the recipe there. That's why I didn't check there.

    Thanks again! Have a nice weekend.

  19. WOW Dajana ovaj sladoled izgleda baš savršeno. Jako mi se sviđaju ti kalupi za sladoled na štapiću, od tog proizvođača imam silikonske kalupe za praline, ali ove za sladoled kod nas nisam viđala. Nadam se da će ih neko nabavljati jer izgledaju baš odlično. Nažalost s njihove stranice ne želim naručivati jer za hrvatsku zaračunavaju bolesno visoku poštarinu.
    P.S.
    Fotke su ti savršene. :)

  21. Savršeno ! Oduševljena sam kako krasno izgledaju sladoledi, divni čokoladni preljevi. A u okus niti najmanje ne sumnjam, jednostavno savršeno !
    Nadam se da je malena ozdravila !

  22. Oh my. My mouth is watering just looking at those delicious ice cream pops. They look so much better than anything you can find at a story. So funny that they only wanted chocolate when you were already making the other flavors. I want to invite you over to share your delicious recipe at These Chicks Cooked Recipe Spotlight. Have a blessed day :)
