Chocolate ice cream sponge cake? Oh crumbs. Truffles, a dessert and a baked cheesecake base.

 

 

Have any chocolate ice cream sponge cake crumbs from the previous post?

Truth be told, Yes!  Promise kept, here are a few ideas to make from the remnants of microwave sponge made from melted ice cream …

 

 

 

Typically brandy and cocoa powder with the crumbs with melted chocolate. Rum, which certainly wasn’t a Rum old option.

Crumb mixed with ganache, a teaspoon of orange liqueur, and  the zest of a sad old clementine, gently rolled in a glass with cocoa powder

… Hello truffles.

 

  

 

Peanut butter, ganache, crumb? Gold leaf? Yup, just be creative with what you have.

 

  

 

Pistachio? Oh go on then.  It seemed rude not to.

 

  

 

Just smoosh into a sticky mass, taste, mould or roll into ball shapes and then chill to set.

N.B. Swirl in a glass with a small amount of coco powder for a (ahem) professional finish.

Impale some onto sticks or indeed stick message sticks into them.  Emergency gift sorted!

 

 

 

I gave some of the chocolate rubble to the friend (?) whose freezer had died. The friend (?) that initially ‘gave me’ 6 litres of melted chocolate ice cream…. she made a cupboard clearance, chocolate salami and lobbed some of her spare c..rummage into that.

 

Really handy use for the crumb is to mix with a little butter, press into a flan tin or similar and bake in the oven for a few minutes. Once cooled use to make a yummy chocolate base for a cheese cake, Alaska or similar.

 

 

 

Lastly layers for a verrine.

 

 

  

 

Soft mousse or creamy layers using the crumb to separate can bring joy to end of’s and a super swift, use-ups post for me.
