Date Night In with Breyers Gelato Indulgences
Mike and I rarely get date nights. We don’t have family in the area, so it’s difficult to sneak away, just the two of us. We’ve started improvising and capturing time together whenever we can find it. One of our favorite ways to relax together has quickly become date night in. No babysitter required – we pick a great movie, some wine and a tasty treat to share after Sam is tucked into bed.
Imagine my delight at finding one of my favorite ice creams, Breyers, is expanding their collection and are now offering some amazing gelato options. They’re available in four amazing flavors:
- Breyers Gelato Indulgences Vanilla Caramel features creamy vanilla gelato topped with luscious caramel sauce and gourmet caramelly curls.
- Breyers Gelato Indulgences Raspberry Cheesecake features cheesecake gelato topped with luscious raspberry sauce and gourmet graham crumble.
- Breyers Gelato Indulgences Tiramisu features mascarpone gelato topped with espresso sauce, ladyfinger cookie pieces and sprinkled with gourmet cocoa.
- Breyers Gelato Indulgences Triple Chocolate features milk chocolate and dark chocolate gelatos topped with white chocolate sauce and chocolatey curls.
I couldn’t decide between the four amazing flavors, so I chose one of each!
For decor, I bought some simple hydrangeas and just put one stem in each square jar, then grouped the four together so it made a lush centerpiece. I used napkins and bowls that have a bit of a south Asian influence. I chose one of our favorite wines to drink as well. When picking a wine for a new food, I love asking the clerk at our local wine store. They have lots of great ideas that will go perfectly with whatever you’re serving.
Our date night in was perfect! One of my favorite things to do at a restaurant is to order a bunch of appetizers or desserts (or both!) and have everyone share. You get to sample everything, so sharing a little of each flavor was ideal. We had a great time talking while enjoying the sweet treats.
Your turn: what Breyers Gelato Indulgences flavor would you love to share on date night?
