I spent several years drawing a graphic novel adaptation of Madeline L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, which will be out through FSG this October, and it was only a matter of time before I made a Wrinkle-themed ice cream. The first flavor that popped into my head was Chocolate-Covered “Aunt”. Ants and aunts both play important parts in the book, and chocolate-covered ants are a real candy that’s always fascinated me–though not enough to try them. Chocolate-Covered “Aunt” ice cream combines chocolate-covered Rice Krispies “ants” with a rich but delicate chocolate cream which, in my opinion, tastes like a classed-up Wendy’s Frosty.
Recipe after the break!
