Recipe

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup chocolate ice cream topping

  • 6 tbsp. finely chopped walnuts

  • 1 pkg. (10 ounces) Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Shells, prepared according to package directions

  • 3 cups French vanilla ice cream

  • Sweetened whipped cream

  • 6 maraschino cherries

Directions

  1. Pour the topping into a shallow bowl.  Pour the walnuts into a dish.  Dip the rims of the pastry shells into the topping.  Coat with the walnuts.

  2. Spoon the remaining topping into the pastry shells.  Spoon 1/2 cup ice cream into each pastry shell.  Top with additional topping, if desired, the whipped cream and cherries.

  3. Cooking Basics: Mini ice cream balls look great in this recipe.  Use a melon baller to create mini ice cream balls.  Place the balls onto a baking sheet and freeze until firm.  Divide the ice cream balls among the pastry shells and top as directed above.

  4. Easy Substitution: You may substitute caramel ice cream topping for the chocolate in this recipe.

  5. Easy Substitution: You can use pecans instead of walnuts in this recipe, if you prefer.

Tip

Place Puff Pastry shells on ungreased baking sheets with “top” facing up. Place pastry shells about 2 inches apart on baking sheet.

To ensure that Puff Pastry shells will rise evenly, score the sides horizontally with a small knife.

Unfilled baked Puff Pastry shells may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.

Always bake Puff Pastry shells in a preheated 425°F oven. Do not bake shells in a microwave or a toaster oven.
