These strawberry and chocolate bonbons are a taste of heaven.

Makes: 12 servings

Prep: 20 mins

Cook: 25 mins

Ingredients
  • 1 pint strawberries, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
  • 25 plain vanilla cookies, such as Nilla wafers
  • 1 pound dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
Directions
  1. In a medium saucepan, simmer the strawberries and sugar over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and syrupy, about 20 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Transfer the ice cream to a large bowl; fold in 1/2 cup strawberry sauce (reserve the remaining sauce for another use). Cover and freeze until firm, about 1 hour.
  3. Place the cookies flat side down on a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet. Top each cookie with 1 small scoop of ice cream. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
  4. In a double boiler, melt three-quarters of the chocolate. Remove from the heat and stir in the remaining chocolate until melted. Dunk each bonbon into the chocolate to coat; return to the prepared baking sheet. Immediately sprinkle with the pistachios. Freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.
Tip
  • Place a heatproof bowl over hot water to melt the chocolate.
  • Pulse the strawberries and sugar in a food processor to chop.
  • Use a fork to dunk each bonbon into the chocolate.
