#3907 - Dove Ice Cream Bars

(by Shirley McNevich)

1 pint good quality vanilla ice cream
12oz. Dove Promises milk chocolates (unwrapped)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
popsicle sticks
sea salt

Place the pint of ice cream in the coldest part of your freezer until it is rock hard. Cover a cookie sheet with wax paper. Run some hot water in a tall glass, and place a sharp knife into the glass (so the blade gets hot). Remove the ice cream from the freezer, remove the top and place the pint of ice cream on its side on a cutting board. Cut the pint in half (through the carton and the ice cream), then cut each in half again so you end up with 4 round ice cream slices (still with the carton on them). Place them on the wax paper and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes. Remove the tray from the freezer again, remove the carton pieces from each slice, place a popsicle stick into each slice, then put them back in the freezer. Fill a small pot halfway with water, and bring the water to a boil. Turn the heat back to simmer. Place a glass bowl on top of the pot and add the unwrapped Dove chocolates and the vegetable oil--stir until melted and smooth. Remove the bowl from the heat, place it on a pot holder, and let it cool to room temperature. Once chocolate is cooled, stir it again. Dip each of the ice cream slices into the melted chocolate until coated, place them back on the wax paper and sprinkle a little sea salt on each. Return them to the freezer until solid (at least an hour).
