So, for those who may not know yet, I graduated from medical school last weekend. This means I’m officially an M.D!!! How strange is that?! It’s been a long time coming and boy, does it feel good! After the graduation ceremony, Ben took on the role of head entertainer and threw me a wonderful graduation party with family and friends. He refused to let me make any of the food, but I absolutely insisted on making the dessert. After all, it is my favorite meal of the day! I considered many options but ended up settling on these ice cream cupcakes because I thought they went well with the laid back cookout we were hosting.
Now for a moment, let’s all stand in awe of this fantastically awesome dessert. Brownie + strawberry ice cream + ganache = three of my favorite things ever = AMAZING!!! Why did I not think of this myself, and why did I not try them sooner? These are just incredible. I now have a goal of saving a little bit of every ice cream I make this summer, and then making a huge batch of these with various cake/ice cream/topping combos. This strawberry chocolate combination is particularly wonderful and this dessert went shooting right up into the ranks of my top favorites. And, they are a hit with adults and kids alike which is always a plus!
