  1. It’s 7:10 AM.. I still haven’t had my coffee…but now I need Chocolate too!

  2. Any from-scratch substitution ideas for the crust? If I am going to invest the time to bake, I’d rather go all the way and not use industrial cookies like Oreos with their questionable list of ingredients. Chocolate, almond meal and butter, perhaps?

    BTW, my wife gave me a Kitchenaid ice cream maker for my birthday, the fancy kind with built-in compressor, and I made your recipe for Turrón ice cream from The Perfect Scoop two weeks ago to inaugurate it. Absolutely delicious!

  3. Another one of your recipes I’ve furiously enjoyed. I added a bit of stevia for extra sweetness.

  4. Just what the doctor orddree, thankity you!

  5. Easy to prepare and delicious to eat.. Thank you..
