Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte (Tuesdays with Dorie)
Ice Cream and Chocolate Ganache. Together. In combination. Yes!

Thanks Amy of Food, Family and Fun for choosing Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte on pages 288-289 of Dorie's book.

Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte (Tuesdays with Dorie)
I made a really, really small batch. I used these mini canning jars (I think they are 4 oz) to make two small tortes.

I blended some raspberries with vanilla ice cream, and the chocolate band is a chocolate ganache. If you want the recipe, see Amy's blog.

Who needs pretty? Those are just adorable! I bought the jars to make pies in a jar. I may have to make tortes.

Those mini tortes are perfect. This cake was sooooo rich. Like eating ice cream and fudge. Those l'il uns would be perfect.

The jars are adorable! I think the hardest thing about this recipe was photographing it before it melted too much. =)
