If you're anything like me, you seriously over-purchase everything when you're hosting a party. For all the NYE hostesses out there, I bet you have more sparkling wine in your humble abode than you've seen in ages (especially because your oh-so-grateful guests each came with beverages in tow). But after all the midnight toasting, you might not be ready to pop open a new bottle for drinks anytime soon. Here are a few recipes for delicious sweets that can be made with your champagne surplus:
The trick for this recipe is to boil the champagne and other ingredients first, then chill in the freezer so the consistency is just right before putting in the ice cream maker. A whipped cream and pom arils garnish is right on point. Visit The Cookie Rookie for the recipe.
