Oreo Ice cream with hot chocolate cake

      Ice cream is so exquisite, pity it isn’t illegal

Ι think I know what Voltaire was thinking  when he said this. When someone puts a plate of this deliciously cold Oreo Ice cream with a slice of hot super moist, decadent melting chocolate cake, nine out of ten people will pick it up , the tenth one will pick it moments later.You just can’t decide which one is melting faster, the ice cream, the chocolate cake or your heart.  The best way to enjoy is to eat the cake and the ice cream together. The hot cake and cold ice cream tantalize your taste buds and seduce your senses into a state of blissful tranquility. Remember to warm up the cake and the chocolate ganache in your microwave just before you indulge.

All the while, I was making my blow hot blow cold dessert, I was reminded of the lyrics from the popular number from Rolling Stones’ Mixed Emotions-

        You’re not the only one
       With mixed emotions
       You’re not the only ship
       Adrift on this ocean…
