Make your own sweet treat chocolate Italian Kisses with this recipe

Vanilla ice cream (go for a cheaper neutral vanilla ice cream, not a full-on real vanilla ice cream as the vanilla flavour will be too dominant)
Milk chocolate
Rose water
Red food dye

How to
Melt the chocolate (see tips, tricks and trivia below) and use a pastry brush to paint melted chocolate into chocolate moulds (ice cube trays work too if you don’t have chocolate moulds).

Place in freezer to firm up. Paint on a second layer of chocolate and back in the freezer it goes.

Remove the ice cream from the freezer and allow it to become just soft enough to stir. Add a few drops of rose water (go gently and taste to see how much you like). Add a drop or two of red food dye until you have the pink you like.

Spoon ice cream into the chocolate moulds and place in the freezer until frozen solid. Spoon a final bit of chocolate over the ice cream to seal it in and freeze until needed.
