The frozen vacherin is without context my favorite dessert and that’s good because it is also my father-in-law’s, which is why I told myself that an iced Vacherin Christmas log would be well received.
A good way to make myself happy, while making me happy.
It’s actually pretty easy to do yourself and if you really don’t have the motivation you can even use store-bought ice cream.
And as I told you in my last cooking tip, which I post on social media every week, there is no better than a frozen dessert for the holidays.
And why ? Well, because you can prepare it ahead of time and leave it in the freezer until D-Day.
Here is the trick to save time, to do the maximum in advance to enjoy your glass of champagne like everyone else.
On the other hand, if you are bothered to talk to handsome daddy and beautiful mother, my faith then I would suggest that you prepare any minute :).
