Did you enjoy the berries, peaches, corn on the husk, and other goodies the sunny season brought you? In my opinion you can never have too many summer fruit recipes; &nbsp;you just can’t. For this or that reason, they’re all good, all worth filing, the same way you don’t <i>need</i> another <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/94434923409579482/">pair of boots</a> or <a href="http://pinterest.com/pin/94434923409572377/">set of white bowls</a>, yet you buy them anyway. And we can argue extensively about those bowls. So, m</span>ay I tempt you with a <a href="http://www.vintagekitchennotes.com/2013/01/vintage-mondays-peach-blackberry-brown.html">peach blackberry brown betty</a>&nbsp;or some <a href="http://www.vintagekitchennotes.com/2012/12/caramelized-fruit-with-brown-sugar-ice.html">caramelized apricots and blueberries with brown sugar ice cream</a>? Well then, how about your favorite ice cream, made into small truffles all covered in crunchy granola?

Nowadays, double pay has a lot of food places opened, trying to allure us, workers also, to spend our day outside, celebrating.

And bingo, ice cream granola truffles are born, never to leave my freezer again. Do you really have to ask why? I'll tell you then. First of all, no more leftover couple-of-tablespoons of ice cream; second, if you have a batch ready in the freezer you have instant dessert on a whim; third, they're freaking awesome, awesome, awesome.&nbsp;</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zT1lQa7PRGA/UiIZXy3uXfI/AAAAAAAAMHk/Zku5ZaTZRZk/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+041.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zT1lQa7PRGA/UiIZXy3uXfI/AAAAAAAAMHk/Zku5ZaTZRZk/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+041.JPG" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DDlWxH03VZQ/UiJuqLb1inI/AAAAAAAAMJA/CgNd10vfBFA/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+050-001.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DDlWxH03VZQ/UiJuqLb1inI/AAAAAAAAMJA/CgNd10vfBFA/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+050-001.JPG" /></a></div><br /><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="EN-US"><br /></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="EN-US">ICE CREAM GRANOLA TRUFFLES<o:p></o:p></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">I find that the best granola for these truffles is made with the smallest oats you can find, finely shredded coconut and no additives (like nuts or dried fruits).

Nowadays, double pay has a lot of food places opened, trying to allure us, workers also, to spend our day outside, celebrating. Well, in my case it all depends on the weather, sunny I want to go out, not sunny I want to be in my kitchen baking.&nbsp;</span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><span lang="EN-US">Too bad I don’t get to make that choice tomorrow, but go to work like on any other regular, non-holiday Monday.&nbsp;</span>But I can make the choice to have ice cream for breakfast. All covered in granola, have your ice cream and eat it too, early in the day.</div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-X07x5vb7Zg0/UiIZdVDPkCI/AAAAAAAAMIk/vf9FF7JugnU/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+115.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-X07x5vb7Zg0/UiIZdVDPkCI/AAAAAAAAMIk/vf9FF7JugnU/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+115.JPG" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="text-align: justify;">This can be labeled a non-recipe recipe, which is a complicated way of saying it's just an idea, or that I just had small amounts of different ice creams in my freezer, felt self-conscious about my non-stop ice cream eating patterns of the last few days, was about to make some granola for <a href="http://www.vintagekitchennotes.com/2013/08/bacon-miso-and-carrot-pasta.html">a friend</a>, and started playing around with both ingredients. And bingo, ice cream granola truffles are born, never to leave my freezer again. Do you really have to ask why? I'll tell you then. First of all, no more leftover couple-of-tablespoons of ice cream; second, if you have a batch ready in the freezer you have instant dessert on a whim; third, they're freaking awesome, awesome, awesome.&nbsp;</div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zT1lQa7PRGA/UiIZXy3uXfI/AAAAAAAAMHk/Zku5ZaTZRZk/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+041.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="clear: left; float: left; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-zT1lQa7PRGA/UiIZXy3uXfI/AAAAAAAAMHk/Zku5ZaTZRZk/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+041.JPG" /></a></div><br /><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"></div><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DDlWxH03VZQ/UiJuqLb1inI/AAAAAAAAMJA/CgNd10vfBFA/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+050-001.JPG" imageanchor="1" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-DDlWxH03VZQ/UiJuqLb1inI/AAAAAAAAMJA/CgNd10vfBFA/s1600/ICE+CREAM+GRANOLA+TRUFFLES+050-001.JPG" /></a></div><br /><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="EN-US"><br /></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><b><span lang="EN-US">ICE CREAM GRANOLA TRUFFLES<o:p></o:p></span></b></div><div class="MsoNormal"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal"><span lang="EN-US">I find that the best granola for these truffles is made with the smallest oats you can find, finely shredded coconut and no additives (like nuts or dried fruits).
