Adventures in Eating & Cooking
The best parts of Max Brenner are the chocolate fondue and the ice cream. Combine the two, and you get the Fantastic Popsicle Chocolate Fondue, a smooth creamy vanilla fudge popsicle dipped in rich tempered milk chocolate. Other toppings include crushed hazelnut bits if you’re in a Ferrero Rocher mood, and crunchy chocolate bits. The crunchy bits are fun enough alone, a fancier version of Bunch-A-Crunch candies!
But of course, it was definitely the Spectacular S’mores Sundae that stole the show. Served in a super-sized wine glass, the dyonisian symbol of decadence, the sundae sent me on an endorphin-high of chocomallow goodness. This baby was born from a dark chocolate gelato (that for the most part resembled ice cream), puffy toasted marshmallow goo, and graham cracker chunks. It was total deliciousness, a great way to indulge in chocolate on a hot summer day. Of course there may be more authentic gelato or higher-quality chocolate desserts elsewhere, but what could be more epic than a jumbo s’mores in ice cream form…in a wineglass?!?
