Simple Deliciousness - Abuelita Over Ice Cream

The best things in life are simple: the scent of a rainy day, a seamless romance, the unconditional love of a puppy, grandmother’s kitchen… This little desert was born out of the desperate yearning of a late night sweet tooth aching to be satisfied by all that is bad for you. Alas, open the cupboard, dig through like a gopher and come out with a small disk of Abuelita. Abuelita means “little grandmother” in Spanish, I always have it on hand to make my favorite hot cocoa, the delicious cinnamon chocolate melted down, whisked with milk with a dash of salt - a pure indulgence for sure. On this particular occasion, patience was not to be tested, Abuelita melted and poured over vanilla ice cream? Why have I never thought of this before!?!?! Simple, easy, always there and as nurturing as your Grandmother… delicious!


12 a.m. Abuelita Treat

2 tbsp. of water or milk
1 disk of Abuelita Chocolate
Ice cream of your favoring

In a medium saucepan over low heat, add the water or milk (less for a thicker chocolate topping) add Abuelita disk, stir constantly until chocolate is melted and smooth. Be careful not to scorch. Pour directly over a serving of your favorite ice cream and indulge.
