In Star Trek: The Next Generation, Deanna Troi’s love affair with chocolate is the stuff of legend. She eats it almost every day, and even has a specific technique for eating ice cream sundaes (Hint: it involves a lot of slow bites and savoring). I always thought her signature sundae looked super delicious, so I decided to make it here on the blog! This decadent ice cream dessert features homemade chocolate ice cream, chocolate fudge, and chocolate chips…plus double chocolate Pirouette cookies, whipped cream, and a cherry for good measure!

P.S. I used the chocolate ice cream recipe that came with my ice cream maker, but feel free to substitute store-bought ice cream if you’re strapped for time. 🙂

  • For the Ice Cream
    • 3/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
    • a pinch of salt
    • 1 cup whole milk
    • 2 cups heavy cream
    • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • For the Toppings
    • 4 tbsp chocolate fudge
    • 4 tbsp mini chocolate chips
    • 2 Pirouette cookies
    • 2 cherries and 2 tbsp whipped cream, optional

Makes 2 ice cream sundaes

INSTRUCTIONS:

    1. To make the ice cream whisk the cocoa, plain sugar, dark brown sugar, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the milk and whisk until everything is dissolved. Whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover the bowl and chill for 1-2 hours or overnight.
    2. Turn on your ice cream maker and pour in the chocolate mix. Allow it to mix for 15-20 minutes or until thickened. Scrape it into a Tupperware container for storing. Place the lid on the container and freeze for 10 minutes or until semi firm.

      Freezing for a little while after churning makes it easier to scoop.
    3. Cut your pirouettes in half. Place 3 scoops of ice cream in a serving dish. Add half your fudge, chocolate chips, whipped cream, and cherries. Place two Pirouette pieces into your sundae at an angle.

    4. Repeat Step 3 for your second sundae.
    5. Treat yourself and a friend after a long of day of hard work on a starship. Don’t forget to savor! 🙂
