Croissant Ice Cream Sandwich
I got the idea for this dessert from the memories of food from my childhood. In certain parts of Asia, ice cream sandwich is literally served in between slices of bread. Did you know that ice cream carts in the Philippines serve this dairy treat sandwiched inside bread buns or pandesal ?! This is not uncommon in Southeast Asia, Singapore’s ice cream vendors scoop their ice cream on multi-colored pandan bread. Thailand, has their own version too as described in this site. The Vietnamese make theirs by scooping it onto soft bread and topping it with roasted nuts and condensed milk.
To make this, I decided to use croissants for a more decadent treat. Slice your croissant in half and drizzle some melted chocolate on top. I used Ghirardelli milk chocolate chips for these. You can use hershey spread or nutella as a substitute. Let the chocolate harden a bit so that your croissant will be easier to handle.
Slice some strawberries and place in onto the lower half of your croissant, then place a scoop of strawberry ice cream on top it. You can use different flavor ice cream like chocolate, vanilla, coffee etc. Serve it with extra slices of fruit or whipped cream on the side.
