CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM with EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL & MALDON SEA SALT

CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM  with EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL & MALDON SEA SALT

Our favorite way to enjoy chocolate ice cream! This unusual combination highlights the qualities of each ingredient by setting them against each other: chocolate juxtaposed to the grassy fruitiness of olive oil, salt against sweet, the crunch of salt flakes to the smooth textures of the ice cream and olive oil, making each ingredient shine. It’s fun to serve at a dinner party, or just for family.  You may never eat chocolate ice cream any other way again!

INGREDIENTS

  • Strauss Organic Dutch Chocolate Ice Cream — or an equivalent quality
  • Stonehouse House Blend Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Maldon Sea Salt                                         

Scoop ice cream into individual serving bowls and generously drizzle with Stonehouse House Blend extra virgin olive oil— use it the way you would a chocolate or caramel sauce—and finish with a sprinkle Maldon Sea Salt—don’t be shy!  It’s crucial to use Maldon, a flaky salt, as the texture, as well as it’s own particular kind of saltiness, is crucial here.  It’s important to get ice cream, olive oil, and salt all in the same bite, so scoop well!

VARIATIONS: use Olio Santo, or any of our regular evoos, to equal acclaim.
