Although our ultimate summer would require spending every day down on the beach boardwalk, the actuality is that we’ll most likely have to compromise with our slip-n-slides, sprinklers and homemade ice cream. But hey, we’re not whining, especially since we’re going to show you how to step up your favorite go-to treat with this simple (and delicious) recipe. A few bites of this delectable warm weather delight and you’ll feel like a kid in no time.

Ultimate Summer Homemade Ice Cream

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. 1. Whisk together first 3 ingredients in a large heavy saucepan. Gradually whisk in milk and cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 10 to 12 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat.

Baileys and Hot Chocolate Tiramisu

Baileys Hot Chocolate Tiramisu

 

Baby it’s cold outside. And what better way to cozy up to the fire this weekend than with a delish dessert. This Bailey’s and hot chocolate tiramisu recipe is calling our name!

Ingredients:

¼ cup hot water
¼ cup hot chocolate powder
¼ cup Baileys Original
2 whole eggs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 cups mascarpone cheese
18 ladyfingers

Makes 4 servings

Directions:

– Mix 2 tsp of hot chocolate powder and hot water, and stir until chocolate is dissolved. Add the Baileys Original.

– In a double boiler, quickly and continuously whisk 2 egg yolks and sugar until completely combined and the mixture becomes the texture of syrup. Take care not to over cook the eggs. Remove from heat and set aside.

– In a separate bowl whisk (with handheld whisker) 2 egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Set mixture aside.

– Fold the mascarpone cheese into the egg yolk mixture. Combine well until creamy and continue by folding it into the egg white mixture.

– Using 2 mugs, place 3 ladyfingers at the bottom of each. Generously brush with the hot cocoa Baileys mixture. Next spoon the mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers. Then sprinkle with hot chocolate powder. Repeat process 2 times. On the last round end with the ladyfingers and place on top of them either hand whipped heavy cream or canned whip cream.

– Top with mini marshmallows, a sprinkle of hot chocolate mix, and a wafer straw.
