We've been having a lot of family movie nights lately, as my kids have caught on to the "super hero" craze. Popcorn gets a little stale after awhile (literally!) so I thought I'd try something new while I watch Captain America save the day. I stumbled upon Kit Kat ice cream at the grocery store last week. Kit Kats are a favorite candy bar of mine, so Kit Kat ice cream in itself is a tasty treat. But once they are rolled into a ball and smothered with dark chocolate, you will be feeling as mighty as a Marvel hero!
I added coconut oil to the chocolate chips before melting them in the microwave. This made the chocolate nice and smooth and added some delicious flavor. One word of advice, you will need to move quickly while making these Kit Kat Ice Cream Bon Bons. I placed a parchment lined cookie sheet in the freezer before melting the chocolate. This way, you can quickly dip each bon bon and then return it to the freezer to avoid melting. I also recommend placing the chocolate into a tall, heat safe glass or mug. It's easier to dip the chocolate when the glass is deeper.
These Kit Kat Bon Bons made my "movie night" even more spectacular. I'm thinking my next experience with these will be on Mother's Day, relaxing in a bubbly tub with a good book! Hope you are able to treat yourself this month! Here's how I made these Kit Kat Ice Cream Bon Bons:
Ingredients: One 12 ounce bag dark chocolate chips; 2 tablespoons coconut oil; one container Kit Kat ice cream.
Directions: Place a parchment lined cookie sheet into the freezer. Place the chocolate chips and coconut oil into a microwave safe medium size bowl. Microwave for one minute. Stir. Cook in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted. Stir until smooth. Allow chocolate to cool. Pour chocolate into a tall coffee mug or heat safe glass. Use a tablespoon to scoop the ice cream. Shape into a ball. Place the ice cream ball on a spoon. Dip into the chocolate. Immediately remove from the chocolate to avoid melting. Place the bon bon on the baking sheet in the freezer to harden. Repeat the process, until chocolate is too low in the cup to continue dipping. Chill in freezer for several hours to harden completely. Makes approximately 10-12.
