Now, mastering making this treats at home is what you are reading this post for. The first time I made the mistake of using just melted chocolate. And that kind-of works, but the chocolate is so thick that covering the ice-cream sandwiches turns out to be quite an adventure. Second time around, was a winner!
The secret is, to add some fat to the chocolate. You can use coconut oil like we did here, but you can also use a neutral flavor oil or shortening. This way, you get a chocolate so smooth and light, that it will start to harden as soon as it touches the frozen ice-cream sandwich. If you are working on more than a batch of 4, I recommend making them in batches of 2 or 3 morenitas, so they don’t melt while you’re working.
They keep for over a week, but we don’t think they will make it that long!
