What "blackout" goodies have you had?
I've actually had a blackout donut from the Doughnut Plant in Tokyo. The Doughnut Plant is a New York donut shop that has a shop in Tokyo.
According to Jasmine's post, the blackout of 2003 affected parts of Canada and New York.
The "blackout" goodies you see around commemorate it.
I tried David Lebovitz's Philadelphia style chocolate ice cream, but I used dark cocoa powder and 60% Ghiradelli chips. I didn't have a blender to blend the mixture, so I just tried to make sure that everything melted before putting it into the refrig.
The results..."blackout" ice cream (well, sort of). I don't think I chilled the mixture long enough, I got more of a melted blackout ice cream.
It was still rich, creamy and VERY chocolatey. I found some lavender crumbs in a container in the refrig, so I put some on top.
I liked the crunch from the crumbs mixed with the rich chocolatey goodness...yum!
By the time Satoshi came home a couple of hours later, it had firmed up a bit but was more like the consistency of a ganache.
