Tuesdays with Dorie - Chocolate-Banded Ice Cream Torte

Yes, I'm back. All the traveling and leaving my day job got the best of me for a few weeks, but I made it!

This week's recipe from Amy of Food, Family and Fun was pretty simple. The ganache was the only item that took any time, but only about 15 minutes. I used pasteurized eggs as the ganache is not cooked. Basically, its three layers of ganache and ice cream. Waiting for the layers to harden in the freezer is the hardest part.

I made these in ramekins. I wasn't the biggest fan, but my husband liked it (which is surprising since there wasn't much fruit it in).

So very cute! The small ones are the perfect size (and you don't have to saw through too much!)

Your minis worked out well, and I'm glad your husband liked the taste. My relatives were thrilled with the torte.
