In this instructable I am going to show you, how to grill ice cream. With its crisp crust and soft, ice cold inside, it will provide the perfect ending to your BBQ.
When I had the idea to grill ice cream I did a little bit of research and found this
recipe, which uses an egg and coconut crust to prevent the ice cream from melting. While I like the idea it definitely requires a lot of practice and perfect timing, since solids aren't very good thermal insulators.
If you take a closer look at insulation materials, you will notice, that most of the time they are made out of a foamy material and consist of lot of air. That's because gases have a lower thermal conductivity and therefore a higher insulating capability.
So all I needed to do was to find a tasty, foamy material to apply around the ice cream to prevent it from melting. The decision was easy, because what could be better than meringue?
As some people pointed out in the comments, the idea to bake ice cream is not new and was invented back in 1876. It is commonly known as Baked Alaska
