Cherry bourbon chocolate sauce, please.

Want to know something sad? I can’t eat ice cream.

I know. It’s very sad. I shouldn’t say all ice cream, because some of them are okay- especially homemade or high quality ones. But most ice cream makes me very ill. It seems as I’ve gotten older I’ve developed a sort of lactose-intolerance, but only with ice cream. And with cereal I have to have Lactaid® instead of regular milk. Odd, I know, since I can have cheese, sour cream, whipped cream, cream cheese, milk in my coffee, heavy cream, etc and have absolutely no problem at all. But it’s come to my attention in a rather unpleasant way over the past few years that my carefree ice cream eating days are over.

Cherry bourbon chocolate sauce. Crazy easy, crazy delicious.

So to make up for this lack of sweet, creamy, cold deliciousness in my life, I buy frozen yogurt. If Jay & I go to an amusement park or something, and he gets an ice cream… I have to see if they sell frozen yogurt or else I’m totally left out. Like the diabetic kid who’s not allowed to have cupcakes at the school birthday, or the peanut allergy kid on Halloween. It’s sad & pathetic. And then I pout- because who doesn’t love a good ice cream cone? Crazy people.

Anyway.

Frozen yogurt is actually a pretty decent substitute for ice cream, and I do enjoy it. But sometimes you need to give it a little extra oomph, since it doesn’t really come in flavors like double chocolate fudge brownie sundae or peanut butter potato chip caramel swirl or whatever. And that my friends is what made me come up with this: cherry bourbon chocolate sauce.

Cherry bourbon chocolate sauce.Unf. I bet just looking at these photos, you wanna lick the spoon. Well, no, you can’t. Get your own.

I should state here that I made this sauce using bourbon that I infused with cherries myself. It’s very easy to make, it keeps forever and it’s delicious, so I recommend doing it. By the way: a tablespoon of it added to a cold glass of Coke is just perfection. Although you could also use regular bourbon or Red Stag.

CHERRY BOURBON CHOCOLATE SAUCE (adapted from Bon Appétit)

Makes roughly one cup

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet (not unsweetened) chocolate, chopped
  • 1/4 cup cherry-infused bourbon

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine cream and brown sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves and cream just starts to boil. Remove from heat, add chocolate and stir until smooth. Stir in bourbon.
  2. Serve immediately, or transfer to a heat safe, airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to a week (IF IT LASTS THAT LONG!). To reheat all or part of the sauce, heat in a microwave safe container on defrost for 10-20 seconds or warm slowly on the stove top.

Some of this on vanilla frozen yogurt makes up for the fact I’m not eating real ice cream. As a matter of fact, it sort of makes it irrelevant altogether.

Here are some ice cream/frozen yogurt recipes for you if you’d like to make your own; French vanilla ice cream, peanut butter ice cream, lemon ice cream, almond ice cream & frozen yogurt.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    I have been browsing online greater than 3 hours these days,
    but I by no means discovered any fascinating article
    like yours. It’s pretty value enough for me.
    In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content material as you
    probably did, the web might be a lot more useful than ever
    before.

    Hey are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own.
    Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be helpful to read content from other writers and use something from other sites.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and entertaining, and
    without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something which not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something concerning this.

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having
    a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
