Welcome to a very cool, very special 80th episode! Starting things off, the hosts review Cuisinart's creamy, dreamy Simple Chocolate Ice Cream with Rocky Road mix-ins. Stefin used the original recipe and toasted almonds; Andrea went dairy free with coconut cream and pistachios, and treated herself to a bag of fresh marshmallows (after a much-needed cupboard clean out). However you choose to whip up this old-fashioned treat, both hosts agree it's an easy, delicious and versatile ice cream to experiment with all summer long. Next up, a dairy free, gluten-free, and (could be) sugar-free treat inspired by Preheated listeners: Tahini Chocolate Banana Soft Serve from the Minimalist Baker. Endless variations here, too, and PixiFood-lovers, take note: There's an optional Magic Shell topping! Speaking of dreams coming true, Stefin sits down with Helen Goh, Ottolenghi pastry chef and recipe developer, and coauthor of Preheater favorite cookbook, Sweet, to discuss her path to baking fame, her favorite frozen treats, and ... popcorn balls! Finally, the hosts discuss their favorite single-serving desserts when you need to show yourself some love, have a craving for something only you enjoy, or simply don't want to share! "Emergency" brownie, dessert hummus or fruit crisp anyone?
