Is there anything sweeter than a Valentine's Day treat designed for sharing? This elegant, easier-than-it-looks take on tartufo, the Italian frozen dessert, is made by packing two types of ice cream into a bowl, topping them with a cookie-crumb mixture, then turning the whole thing out and coating it with a chocolate shell. It usually has a maraschino cherry hidden inside--but ours, of course, has two.
Horizontal slices of rich brownie cake make dramatic stripes in this striking frozen dessert, which features all the fixings of an old-fashioned sundae -- and then some. Two kinds of ice cream -- vanilla and strawberry -- are used as the fillings, along with crunchy peanut butter and crushed raspberries. Everything is layered in a loaf pan before freezing, slicing, and serving -- with whipped cream, sugared peanuts, and cherries on top.
