It is best to assemble these doughnut sandwiches, dip them in chocolate, and eat them right away while the ice cream is frozen, the doughnuts are fresh, and chocolate is still a little melty.
for each sandwich, you will need:
1 doughnut, any kind you like
1 generous scoop of coffee ice cream
melted chocolate (we poured a bag of chocolate chips into a small heavy-bottomed saucepan and melted it over extremely low heat)
Remove ice cream from freezer and let sit on countertop to soften ever so slightly while you prepare the doughnuts.
Slice each doughnut in half around the middle. Our tool recommendation: a long, serrated bread knife.
Place a generous scoop of ice cream on a small plate. Using a spatula, flatten the scoop of ice cream to the same diameter as your doughnuts. Place the flattened scoop of ice cream on half the doughnut. “Close” the sandwich with the other half of the doughnut.
Place prepared doughnut sandwiches in freezer temporarily.
Melt your chocolate.
Remove sandwiches from freezer. Dip each sandwich into melted chocolate.
Serve immediately, with lots of napkins. It’s very messy. Sticky glaze, melting ice cream, oozing chocolate…
