Ben & Jerry's Cookie Cores Ice Cream: Truffles recipe & Video

OMG!. My friend Lauren posted a link to this new line of Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream: Cookie Core Ice Cream! Dark Caramel & Vanilla Ice Creams with Speculoos Cookies & a Speculoos Cookie Butter Core. Boom Chocolatta! Cookie core. Peanut Buttah cookie core and Spectacular Speculoos cookie core. Be still my heart.  For the purpose of this blog, I'm going to try Boom Chocolatta, of course. Mocha & Caramel Ice Creams with Chocolate Cookies, Fudge Flakes & a Chocolate Cookie Core! Be sure to scroll down and watch the video!

Not enough to just eat it? Here's a recipe from Ben & Jerry's for Spectacular Speculoos Ice Cream Truffles. Of course, you can substitute any of the flavors.

Spectacular Speculoos Ice Cream Truffles:

1 pint Ben & Jerry’s Spectacular Speculoos Core Ice Cream
1 cup heavy cream
4 ounces white chocolate
Cinnamon for garnish

Place metal cookie tray with waxed paper in the freezer.
Let ice cream soften so it is scoopable, but still firm.
Scoop small balls of ice cream onto chilled tray and place in freezer again.
Place heat proof (glass or stainless steel) bowl over boiling water, add 1 cup of cream to heat cream to low boil and remove from heat. Place white chocolate in bowl and slowly add cream while stirring. Let ganache cool, but still have liquid to dip.
Drizzle ganache over ice cream balls, sprinkle with cinnamon,  and immediately place in the freezer for at least 2 hours.
