Sometimes great concoctions come from extra ingredients. I was making Napoleons for New Year’s Eve and had some extra filling. I piped it onto a graham cracker and stuck it in the freezer. New Year’s Day – best frozen dessert sandwich ever! The graham cracker was soft and the rich chocolate filling was decadent. It was like an ice cream sandwich with the most premium ice cream. It was so good that it was requested as a birthday dessert in lieu of a birthday cake.
Napoleons may be a French pastry that have an origin in Italy, but this frozen dessert is all American.
