I am posting the desserts we made for Memorial Day weekend a bit late but better late than never to share these great summer desserts. My mom made the perfect lemon bar, I made pizzelle for our homemade ice cream sandwiches, and the s’mores we made were a group effort.
Lemon Bar Recipe:
My mom made these lemon bars were super easy and tasty where it was hard to just eat one.
Ice Cream Sandwiches made with Pizzelle and Homemade Ice Cream:
We made homemade ice cream sandwiches so I made pizzelle and homemade custard ice cream and I doubled the recipe so there would be enough for the ice cream sandwiches since we usually just scoop ice cream for a brownie or cookie sundae.
Homemade Vanilla Custard Ice Cream:
I have posted this recipe for homemade vanilla custard ice cream.
Homemade Pizzelle: Pizzelle are a great crispy cookie to use because they hold up well and won’t get too soft or soggy from the ice cream. I add a little cinnamon and both vanilla and almond extract to the recipe for some extra flavor.
S’mores: The s’mores were made as a group effort. I melted the Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate 60% Cocoa Chip in the microwave in 30 second increments. I melted 1 cup of dark chocolate chips for about a minute them I spread the chocolate on a half of a graham cracker while my sister and her husband used a small torch to roast the large marshmallows for each s’more. We placed a roasted marshmallow over the melted Ghirardelli dark chocolate then topped with half a graham cracker. Finally ENJOY and eat the dessert sandwich!!!
