This recipe for chocolate pepernoten ice cream is a typical Sinterklaas recipe that you probably could eat the whole year.
As I blogged yesterday, tomorrow Sinterklaas is being celebrated in the Netherlands. As I did mention we eat pepernoten as a treat. But we also have chocolate pepernoten. And they are even better.
On Sunday we always end our dinner with ice cream. So to stay in the season I've made chocolate pepernoten ice cream.
Chocolate mousse on it's way
And it's good, very good. I've eaten it and I pity that Sinterklaas is gone tomorrow. I have to wait almost a year before chocolate pepernoten are available again.
But Christmas is coming so that's also a good prospect because I love that holiday too. And you can prepare lots of desserts: a great chocolate mousse, Christmas cake and go on.
The children are getting nervous
My children are nervous about what present to expect. Sinterklaas comes along and brings something with him in a bag. When you are naughty (that's the story), you get a roe. A roe is a bundle of wood (too bad for you).
Otherwise, he brings you something you want (or you hope he will).
And we sing songs and drink chocolate milk. I've got my dessert ready for tomorrow. What are you going to prepare?
