Trick question; he doesn’t have one. That type of thing is
more for women and food bloggers. In fact, your dad may not even have a
favorite dessert, but if he had to pick one, I think a lot of fathers would go
with s’mores – the campfire classic that inspired this frozen Father’s Day
S’mores are a simple, yet brilliant treat that represents
everything most males, dads or otherwise, seem to love. It’s made over a
crackling fire, the building of which triggers the release of all kinds of
manly neurotransmitters in the brain. The same goes for sharpening sticks with knives,
impaling things, and burning stuff.
And while you’re not experiencing those primitive pleasures
here (except for the blowtorch, which is never not awesome), I think just the
connection with the venerable s’more alone will be enough to have dad loving
If not, there’s always the crispy, buttery graham crackers,
chocolate ice cream, and toasted marshmallows to make him proud of you anyway.
Whether you make this for Father’s Day dessert or not, I really hope you give
this a try soon. Enjoy!
