About a month ago my four year relationship ended and as we all know, anytime a relationship (or even a friendship!) ends it is never easy. Luckily, mine ended without a lot of damage to each other and dare I say…one day I really hope we will actually be friends. No matter how it ends everyone stills heals and moves on in all the same ways. When drowning your sorrows in ben & jerry’s, real housewives re-runs and cozy anything you should treat yourself to something decadent. After all, you are in the “you” phase and deserve something extra special. Honey, it’s just too sad to be in old baggy sweatpants (girl, be real.. I know the truth) scooping your spoon in to the carton until it scrapes the bottom. That’s not cute, and definatly not going to make you feel good about yourself.
Let’s approach this the way you will soon be approaching your new dating life. Make this dessert about quality, not quantity! Bust out some Beyonce on your ipod, put on your best fitting pair of booty shorts, cuddle up on the couch and make yourself the perfect bowl of ice cream. You will be all better in no time. Promise.
What you need:
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
Thick sliced bacon
Semi sweet chocolate
A pastry brush or paint brush
Sprinkle black pepper across the bacon. On a baking sheet, bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and press any grease out with paper towels! Let cool. Melt the chocolate in the microwave till soft, about 40 seconds. Paint the chocolate across one side of the bacon. Crumble across your scoop of ice cream. Sprinkle with a good quality Sea Salt.
Go ahead, be a little naughty…now is the time!
so much love,
