Best things about Summer is that eating ice cream is mandatory. Ok, it’s not but it should be – after all ice cream is a good source of calcium. I like to make ice cream at home, but most of the time I am just too lazy or busy to do it. Then I hit the store to get Ben & Jerry’s – absolutely the best ice cream there is; according to me. My all time favorite flavor is (and will always be) Cookie Dough.
Here’s is an easy idea how to pimp up your store-bought ice cream at home. All you need is a few of your favorite toppings. Mine happen to be melted Green & Black’s Sea Salt Milk Chocolate, Chopped Roasted Hazelnuts and – of course – Colorful Sprinkles. You can use waffle cones, but I like using pretty teacups as ice cream bowls.

To melt the chocolate:
Break the chocolate into small pieces and transfer them into a heat-proof bowl. Place the heat-proof bowl with the chocolate pieces in it over boiling water without the bowl actually touching the water. Melt the chocolate while continuously mixing. Transfer the chocolate into a serving dish.
Take a big scoop of the ice cream and place into a teacup. Pour some of the melted chocolate on top of the ice cream scoop. Before the chocolate has time to set, sprinkle chopped hazelnuts and sprinkles on top.
