Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Roll

Well years ago I attempeted a Chocolate Roll. But the cake tore and did not work. So I figured why try again. There are lots of other things that turn out that I can make. So years later I think to myself time to overcome this fear. I was so stressed making this dessert. Partly cause I was affraid it would not turn out. Also I was making it for Christmas Dinner with my side of the family. So it had to turn out. I found a great recipe on line. Here is the link
The recipe called for vanilla ice cream. But I thought to myself that candy cane ice cream would be very festive. So as we have an ice cream maker and making ice cream is very easy I went on line to find a recipe for that. I did here.
The ice cream turned out great. Was a very strong minty taste which I did not like. I don't really like mint. Then dday came and I had to make the cake. I did lots of crying and being stressed. But the cake turned out great. The whole dessert was not as hard as I thought. I would definately make this dessert again. If you have never made a Chocolte Roll before its really not that hard to do. Oh and it tasted soooo good. Did not notice the strong taste of the mint in the ice cream in the cake. I wish I had more to eat. I served the slices of cake with a dolip of whip cream and sprinkled a bit of candy cane on the  whiped cream. So if you are an adverntursome cook give this a try. You won't regret it. Also if you don't have an ice cream maker you can just buy ice cream at the store. You can also find candy cane ice cream. Blessings!
