I was looking for something cold to beat the heat – when I stumbled across this gem in an old cookbook on my shelf.
It was obviously written back when people eat things made with raw eggs and never worried about salmonella.
I had no qualms making it – since I could use our own farm fresh eggs that I knew were handled properly.
But then I still eat raw cookie dough and make my homemade ice cream with a raw base. 🙂
If you are brave enough to try it – you are in for a treat! The creamy chocolate base is reminiscent of a fudgecicle. Cold creamy and wonderful!
Chocolate Fudgecicle Dessert
2 cups graham cracker crust
1/4 butter, melted
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 squares unsweetened chocolate, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 egg yolks
3 egg whites
1 quart vanilla ice cream
Mix the graham cracker crumbs and melted butter. Press into a 8 x 8 pan.
Cream the powdered sugar with the 1/2 cup butter. Add the melted chocolate, vanilla and egg yolks. Mix well.
Stiffly beat the eggs whites. Fold carefully into the chocolate mixture. Spread on crumb crust and chill.
When filling is firm, spread softened ice cream over it. Sprinkle with chopped nuts if you desire. I just swirled the top with Hershey’s chocolate syrup.
Freeze and enjoy!
