but I didn't want to go out and acquire new ingredients for anything crazy fancy. strawberry chocolate truffle pie? chocolate caramel cheesecake? no. cooking is most fun if you have to be resourceful. so maybe it's risky to substitute sour cream for buttermilk or pretzels for graham crackers--but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
all we had in the fridge was an old two-thirds-eaten half gallon of Blue Bell vanilla, and Blue Bell makes great ice cream, but vanilla is boring. so. enter a few ounces baking chocolate, a half-eaten box of mango creme girl scout cookies, some ice cream toppings, and the whipped cream also leftover from last week's dinner party.
now I feel like I need an occasion and some friends to help me eat the thing. I promise there isn't anything weird like tofu or sour cream in it.
