Curling offers up plenty of thrills and chills, but don’t expect many spills. If there is one thing curling fans hold onto harder than their lucky tams, it’s a cup of hot coffee. It’s not that the cold bothers them, it’s because curling fans just love coffee… and doughnuts.
Here is a rock-solid recipe for all those hot-blooded fans who love curling, coffee and doughnuts. Make your own Tim-Horton-doughnut-and-coffee-ice-cream-sandwich (aka; Cold Curling Rocks) to enjoy at the rink or anytime you just need to cross that hog line. These bad boys rock!
The 2009 Tim Hortons Brier Curling Championship is throwing down at the Saddledome from March 7-15. It’s impossible to know who will own the house, but you can bet you’ll spot a few Kenora dinner jackets, some painted screaming faces and plenty of coffee and doughnuts.
A 1-pint container of vanilla icecream
1/3 cup cold Tim Hortons black coffee
6 honey glazed Tim Hortons doughnuts
Pop the ice cream into the micro for 30 seconds to soften it slightly.
In a big bowl use a fork to mix one scoop of ice cream with the coffee until they are smooth. Add half the remaining ice cream and stir it to incorporate. Add the rest of the ice cream and stir until the whole mess is pretty smooth, but a few little lumps is fine.
Pour the coffee ice cream back into the ice cream container. You’ll have a little extra that won’t fit in the container, feel free to slurp that back right away. Put the ice cream back in the freezer to firm up for at least 2 hours.
Place the half-dozen box of doughnuts in the freezer so they can firm up too.
When the doughnuts are frozen solid, use a serrated knife to cut them in half like a bagel. Go slowly as they are brittle, but it’s easier than squishing them when they are soft.
After the ice cream is firm, run warm water on the outside of the container until the whole thing can slide out easily. Lay it flat and slice the ice cream cylinder it into 6 disks. I like to make the first cut in the middle and cut each half into threes.
Place one icecream puck in each doughnut like a sandwich and place them all back in the box and into the freezer get rock solid.
If you are eating them directly from the freezer, they might benefit from a quick 10 seconds in the micro. If you are taking them to the rink keep them on ice and let them warm up and soften slightly before you chow down.
Goes great with hot coffee for dunking.
Makes 6 Cold Curling Rocks… enough to feed the Lead, Second, Vice, Skip, Coach and Coffee-Runner.
