Magnum Double Chocolate Ice Cream Bars Deconstructed

 great ice cream to try out!


Magnum Double Chocolate Ice Cream Bars Deconstructed

 We selected to try the Double Chocolate ice cream bars, they had classic, caramel, almond to choose from.


Inside this golden foil I was amazed with my first bite. A rich dense chocolate shell, delicious chocolate ice cream with a wonderful chocolate sauce surrounding the ice cream, all in one bite! This is a very thick bar not easy to bite through but extremely yummy!

Since we are lovers of ice cream confections of  all sorts, I decided to deconstruct one of these wonderful bars and make a double chocolate Magnum banana split! What a great experiment, we all loved it!



Makes 3 separate desserts:
1 box of Magnum Double Chocolate Bars
1 package of chocolate graham crackers
banana's
whipped cream
 hot fudge ice cream topping
 optional:  nuts, cherries, pineapple, chocolate shavings, marshmallow topping, caramel topping
 
In a sundae dish or bowl, start with broken pieces of chocolate graham crackers, add sliced banana, top with cut up pieces of Magnum double chocolate ice cream. Use optional toppings above of choice.

Looks really good (the deconstruction well camouflaged). So simple, so delicious and really thinking creatively out of the box!

I have loved Magnum since I first tried it in Europe a decade ago. I'm so glad they finally brought Magnum to the US!! I love your deconstruction, what a fun use for the Magnum bars :) Who doesn't love banana splits?!

Barbara Bakes said...

I've been wanting to try these. What a fun idea.

Now that's a terrific idea - 5 Star Foodie Junior would prefer this ice cream in a deconstructed form for sure. We still have some left so we'll totally do it tonight, thanks!

I wish I would have thought of this when we had our Magnum samples! They were quickly gobbled up in our house! =)

Just had Magnum for the first time a couple months ago on a trip to New Zealand. Fell in love ! We get back to Iowa and a month later I can find it here. YEAH!!

Sandra said...

I couldn't wait for Blogger to come back up so I could tell you how awesome this is! Drool-worthy, delicious, decadent, over the top and all that and a bag of chips. Wish we Magum Ice Cream in our area. Great pictures too!

Claudia, I wish that was on my dessert menu for today! WOW!

Wow! What an amazing idea with the deconstruction making this yummy ice cream...which I'm not familiar with, into a super mouthwatering banana split!
Beautiful photos, as well:DDD

I am guessing magnum double chocolate ice cream in pretty much any shape and form will be delicious! Great to pair with bananas

Bizzy said...

Oh me. Just look at those photos. Perhaps, I should stay here and stare.

Reeni said...

They sound delectable on their own! Made into a sundae is an over the top treat!

Becky said...

These magnum bars look so decadent! then you made them into Banana Splits. So rich and chocolaty, even with a cherry! I'll have to look for these bars soon!

Magic of Spice said...

What a fun idea! I have not tried these yet but love the way to did them up :)

Tina @flourtrader said...

I have been wanting to try these ever since they have been advertised. I also have been wondering if they have one with dark chocolate. Great idea making a banana split out of them! Yum

TheChocolatePriestess said...

I'm so sorry I didn't comment on this earlier; crazy two months for us. I love how you broke it up to really look at it.

TheChocolatePriestess said...

I love how you broke these apart to really look at it, Claudia. Sorry it took me so long to leave a comment, I know we all feed off of these, but it has been a crazy two months and sadly not in a good way.

Dee Bee @ thyme and patience said...
