A New Favorite Treat

We went to the Bouchon the other night to enjoy great food with good company and the incredible hospitality of the staff there and our friend Chris who is the pastry chef. As always we had amazing food. But the real treat here is always the dessert course. 

Chris has been working on an idea he had a couple of years ago. Remember push up pops? The sherbet pops that you push up and eat? I loved those things growing up. Well Chris wanted to make his own version of it. It took 2 years to perfect the production but what we ate last Friday night was pretty much perfection in my book. 
These are made with homemade frozen yogurt made from homemade yogurt and blackberry sorbet. The yogurt was better than most ice creams I have had and I am kind of a connoisseur of ice cream. ;) The berry sorbet brought the right pop of flavor and the whole thing ate clean. 

It was such a fun dessert and incredibly tasty. I have been craving one since that night. Seriously I wish I could pick these up in my grocery store. I think I may have to add them to my favorite desserts list. Chris's creations keep adding to the list.
