Waffle Bowl Sundaes

Happy Sunday - it's time for Sundaes!
I definitely could not resist the urge to try the new PC waffle bowls - filled with chocolate ice cream, fresh berries and then topped of with chocolate ganache. A fun way to finish off the day, especially a hot one!

The waffle bowls are the perfect thickness, not too thick that they are difficult to eat, and not to thin that they break with the slightest touch. I love the way they come so carefully packaged too, all separated by corrugated card board so that none break during transport. I have to say I was pretty impressed to open the package and find nothing cracked or broken. Well done PC!

Obviously, you can fill the bowls with whatever you like, but I was thinking as an added touch you could dip the edges into melted chocolate (and maybe sprinkles) and leave them to set before filling with ice cream.

Chocolate Ganache
makes 1 cup - enough to top 4 waffle bowls of ice cream

125g bittersweet chocolate
1/2 cup whipping cream

Melt chocolate in bowl set over simmering water. Stir until melted and smooth. Add cream and stir until blended. Cool slightly before pouring over ice cream, berries, cake, or whatever takes your fancy!
