Easy Creme Angliase
- 1⁄2 gallon vanilla ice cream
- 2 egg yolks
Melt ice cream using a double boiler, then add egg yolks and whisk occasionally until mixture starts to thicken (approximately 10 minutes). Chill.
Heat a kitchen towel with hot water, squeezing excess water out, and gently rub sides of the ring mold until the chocolate crunch can be removed with little or no force. Place torte in the center of the plate and drizzle sauce as desired. Enjoy with a glass of J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet!
