Dark chocolate Bombe shells (with pistachios and raspberries)

I  had this recipe  from past summer and is from Bon Appetit,
sometimes happens you have a lot of recipes but not all the time (home,teens,work and others ) the other day I find again and today here is a really sunshine day (like spring) thinking we are in winter still  I have to make it:)
(anyway we eat Ice cream around the year)

In Bon appetit they say you can make with the kids and is true and is fun but I made alone and was better (I made a mess in the kitchen with the chocolate but I clean all  LOL)

I added chopped pistachios and raspberries but you can use others nuts too or granola!

Im sharing with Cook your books of Kitchen Flavours


350 grams (about 12 oz)
semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
(or high quality white chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup coconut oil or sunflower oil
1 1/2 teaspoon finelly grated lemon zest
(optional for white chocolate shell)


8 standard sugar ice cream cones
4 cups Ice cream (about 2 pints)
3/4 cup of garnish such as chopped pistachios,
crushed prezels,  frozen raspberries.

Bombe Shell
Combine dark chocolate and coconut oil or sunflower oil in a medium metal bowl , set over a medium saucepan of simmering water.
Stir until chocolate is almost melted. Remove from heat and continue stirring until completely melted and smooth.
Let cool slightly (if it's too hot it'll melt your ice cream.


The cones I used have a base but if you have the other cones put in glasses with some sugar to hold cones upright.

Working with  1 cone at a time, spoon about 1/4 cup bombe Shell inside cone  and swril to coat
Pour excess back into bowl.
Set cone upright in a prepared glass. Chill in refrigerator
until chocolate hardens (about 7 to 8 minutes)
Repeat with remaining cones,
Line a rimmed baking sheet  wih foil . pack some Ice cream into cones.
then top each with a small scoop of ice cream
Lay cones on baking  sheet and freeze until hard, about 1 hour.
Rewarm bombe shell working with 1 cone at  a time, rolling to coat.
Quickly sprinkle on desire garnish. Freeze until hard. (about 10 minutes).
when I sprinkle with chopped  piastachios and berries in someones  I added quickly  raspberries.
Keep frozen.
You can made 1 week ahead.Wrap each cone in foil.

Cubierta para barquillos con pistachios y frambuesas

Hoy el día ha estado precioso  casi primaveral así que hicimos esta cobertura de chocolate para unos conos de helados que hace tiempo quería hacer.
A mis hijos les encantaron y me dijeron tienes que hacerlos de nuevo, y son tan fáciles.

Según Bon Appetit se pueden preparar con niños pequeños (y a ellos les encanta) pero tengan paciencia porque con el chocolate se ensucia un poquito pero se limpia rápido.


 350 gramos chocolate para cobertura
en barra
1/3 taza de aceite de maravilla
1 y 1/2 cucharadita ralladura de limón

6 a 8 barquillos para helado
4 tazas  de helado (de vainilla o del sabor que se prefiera)
3/4 taza de pistachios picados (sin sal)
frambuesas congeladas
o granola

Preparación salsa de chocolate

En una ollita mezclar el chocolate en trozos y el aceite, colocar sobre un sartén u ollita a baño maría (el chocolate no debe nunca hervir)
Revolver la mezcla hasta que el chocolate esté derretido.
Retirar del fuego y seguir revolviendo hasta que sea una crema suave.
Dejar entibiar un poco.

Armar los barquillos
Los barquillos que yo tenía tienen una base (se pueden parar) pero se puede usar cualquier otro, si son de los típicos los pueden colocar en vasos para afirmarlos mientras se preparan.

Primero colocar un poco de la salsa de chocolate dentro del barquillo.
darle una vuelta y dejar lo que cae en el bol.
Hacer con todos lo mismo y dejarlos en los vasos mientras.
Dejar unos 7 minutos en el refrigerador.
Rellenar los barquillos con una bola de helado.
Dejar los helados un rato en el congelador.
Calentar un poco de nuevo la salsa de chocolate y bañar de a uno los barquillos con los helado agregando los pistachios y las fambruesas,
congelar en el freezer unos 10 minutos antes de servir.
Se pueden congelar y guardar 1 semana antes (envolver en
aluza foil)
