Yesterday morning I woke up and it was snowing! Everything was covered with the white, cold, wet thing….argh. I hate snow. I just don't like the cold, crisp winter mornings. So basically I wanted to crawl under my blanket and fall back asleep. But I'm a responsible adult and chose to go into the kitchen and prepare some dessert.
This dessert is perfect for those of you who like frozen treats and chocolate. It's a perfect combo with chocolate ice cream and swiss rolls. In the form of a giant bomb.
2 Swiss Rolls (I used chocolate flavored)
1 Chocolate ice cream
3 table spoons rum
First prepare a medium sized bowl – wrap the inside of the bowl in plastic and set aside. Cut the swiss roll in 1 centimeter thick pieces and place them all over the bowl, one next to another. When you're done and the bowl is covered in swiss rolls, brush them with rum. Put the ice cream in the middle of the bomb and press it gently with a spoon so you don't have any lumps (it's good to let the ice cream sit at room temperature for a few minutes before that). Now cover the bomb with remaining swiss rolls so you have a 'lid' and the bomb is closed. Cover with plastic wrap on top and put in the freezer for 2 hours. Let the bomb sit for a minute or two at room temperature or simply warm it with your hands a bit. Now carefully put it on a plate; remove the foil from the top and place a plate upside down on it. Turn around and try to get it out gently, it should pop out. Don't force the bomb out, or you'll get a messy thing! That's it. Just cut it in pieces and enjoy.
