We are going to Mom & Dad's for Easter dinner, then to our house (room) for dessert and the egg hunt. We've also been stuffing eggs....lots of eggs with candy and treats.
We used to have the meal at our house too, but since we are living in one room right now, we have a progressive type dinner/dessert situation! Here is a good recipe for ham. After years of getting up in the wee hours of the morning, we started cooking the ham the day before, let it cool, slice it, refrigerate it until the next day. Then heat it up, put it on a platter, and serve.
So anyway, I'm getting my "Martha" back right? And I decided to make the ice cream look pretty. So I got out my new molds I bought a couple of months ago. I let the ice cream soften, and filled the molds.
I used a warm cake decorating tool to push the ice cream firmly into the molds. (I dipped it in hot water first) Kind of messy looking as the hot icing tool melted the ice cream quickly, but it was going into the freezer and when they pop out you won't see the messy part.
I melted chocolate.
I was visualizing taking orders. EW! - I'll have to do a better job of the air bubbles I see....
I put them in the fridge to make sure they were extra hard. The plan is to pop the balloon and pull it out. And wow everyone with hollowed out eggs with candy inside!
Back to the ice cream....
Then I got to thinking....we don't need chocolate ice cream anyway...we need vanilla.
I'm thinking about serving the chocolate eggs like this!!!!!!
