We love a refreshing summer treat that uses ingredients you probably have on hand! These Ice Cream Crunch Bombs have flavor and texture that are totally explosive (pun very much intended!). A perfect make-ahead dessert, enjoy these beauties after a fun family barbecue or even serve them for dessert for your next Shabbos meal. Change up the ice cream flavors to put your own awesome spin on it or serve it over some bananas sliced lengthwise for the best banana split ever.

Make the Ice Cream Bombs
Allow ice cream to soften slightly.
Prepare a large cup of water, a large ice cream scoop, and a Gefen Easy Baking Parchment-lined baking sheet. Wet the scoop. Fill with a level scoop of ice cream and set neatly set on the baking sheet. Rinse scoop in water and repeat, working quickly so the ice cream doesn’t begin to melt. Place tray in freezer.
Place crunch ingredients in a medium ziplock bag and mash until you have fine crumbs. Transfer to a small bowl.
Working quickly, remove the ice cream balls from the freezer. Roll balls in the crumbs until well coated. Return ice cream balls to the freezer and allow to harden.
Next prepare the chocolate glaze: Place the glaze ingredients in a small saucepan and melt over low heat.
Working quickly, place one ice cream ball on a large slotted spoon. Pour chocolate glaze over the ball and carefully return to the baking sheet. Repeat with remaining balls. Sprinkle with remaining crunch and return to freezer until ready to serve.
