Smart Staple: Keep a box of puff pastry, which is the base for the sundae puffs, stashed in the freezer and you'll always be ready to make a decadent dessert. You can use any kind of fruit that's in season.
You don't need a campfire to make ice cream s'mores-a broiler is just fine. Melt marshmallows and chocolate bars on graham crackers. Top one marshmallow-covered cracker with chocolate ice cream. Layer with a chocolate-covered cracker, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, another marshmallow-covered cracker, and a ladling of hot fudge.
We garnished these sophisticated desserts, which are very easy to prepare, with chocolate shavings. To make your own garnish, use a knife or vegetable peeler to scrape a 4-ounce bar of semisweet or bittersweet chocolate into thin strips.
