Attempt #18: Rum and Raisins with Vanilla Ice Cream

There is a Mother Goose Rhyme that reads,
“What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice,
And everything nice”.

Well, if Mother Goose were to ever write about ‘What big girls are made of?’… it would probably go something like this….
"What are big girls made of?
Sugar and Alcohol,
And 10 sharp claws!”

That said, with Ice Cream loaded with Rum, this is truly a comfort food for all big girls! J


Put a small pan on low heat, add a handful of raisins and a good lug of dark rum and warm through. Pour unto the bottom of your serving bowl and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Using a speed peeler, or very carefully using a sharp knife, shave a few curls of good quality bittersweet chocolate over your ice cream.  


Lesson learnt: Must use a knife to shave the chocolate else it doesn’t look nice as a photo shot.
