If I ever find myself standing in front of a firing squad and asked what I want my last meal to be, after listing off a dozen potato-based items, this dessert will absolutely be requested. It combines three of my favorite obsessions – lemon, chocolate, and alcohol – into one exceptionally delicious and decadent treat. I’m still shocked at the lack of lemon/chocolate creations in the food world – trust me, it’s an untapped combination that’s just waiting to be exploited.
Enjoy a Lemon Lusso (Luxurious Lemon)…
- Add a scoop of your favorite ice cream. I went with classic vanilla.
- Pour a liberal amount of Limoncello over your creation.
- Shave some dark chocolate and lemon rind over the ice cream.
- Add a handful of Quadratini Dark Chocolate Wafer Cookies
- Ciao Down!
UPDATE! – at last night’s 5/21/11 Rapture Post-Party, I brought along my Lemon Lusso creation to share with the fellow sinners, and added an ingredient that put the proverbial icing on the cake…non-fat REDDI-WIP WHIPPED CREAM! Awwww, yeah.
