National Ice Cream Sandwich Day is right around the corner, taking place on Friday, August 2. To help celebrate, famed chocolate master and host of Netflix’s Nailed It! Jacques Torres is offering two ice cream sandwiches.
At his chocolate shops throughout New York City, Torres will be selling classic and macaron ice cream sandwiches. The classic flavor features a scoop of his famous ice cream between two massive chocolate chip cookies.
The new macaron ice cream sandwich injects the ice cream into a classic French dessert, replacing the typical ganache or buttercream. Customers can customize their own creations in-store or indulge in flavor combinations such as these:
- Chocolate Ice Cream with Red Macarons
- Vanilla Caramel Swirl Ice Cream with Chocolate Macarons
- Strawberry Ice Cream with Green Macarons
Jacques Torres’ creations can not only be found at his shops, but also inside of Newark Liberty International Airport. The legendary chocolatier worked with Mélange for its baked goods selection at its all-day café that opened in the airport in 2017. That includes croissants, assorted pastries and buns, hand-rolled New York-style bagels, muffins, hand-crafted chocolate bars, cupcakes, macaroons, doughnuts, and sweet and savory eclairs.
