I dip, you dip, we dip!

Total time: 35 minutes

Ingredients for 4 people

8 eggs

1 2/3 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1 stick butter

7 oz chocolate

Vanilla ice cream

1 (8oz) block Swiss cheese

10 slices sandwich bread

3 slices ham

3 slices Swiss cheese

2 egg yolks


1 empty plastic bottle

1 screwdriver

1 lighter

4 straws

1 large glass

1 loaf pan

1 funnel

4 egg cups

1 rolling pin

1 baking sheet

Parchment paper

Step 1/4

Heat the end of the screwdriver with the lighter and make four holes in the bottom of your plastic bottle. Cut your straws so that they are 1 1/2-inches on the side with the bend. Fit the shortened straws into the holes of the bottle. Turn over you large glass and place your bottle on top.

Step 2/4

Crack open four eggs carefully, saving the shells. Mix eggs, flour, sugar, butter, and melted chocolate together. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake at 350 °F for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, place the vanilla ice cream, container and all, in simmering water until melted. Pour ice cream into the bottle with the help of a funnel, replace the cap. Place your clean eggshells into the egg cups under the straws. Cut the chocolate cake into long, dippable pieces and open the bottle, so the ice cream fills the egg shells. Dip and enjoy.

Step 3/4

Cut you Swiss cheese block into 6 long pieces. Roll out six slices of sandwich bread and wrap each slice around the piece of Swiss cheese. Set aside. Place a slice of ham and a slice of swiss on top of a slice of sandwich bread, then cover with another slice of bread. Repeat until all slices of cheese, ham, and sandwich bread have been used. Using your rolling pin, flatten. Cut into 6 long pieces.

Step 4/4

Place all your pieces on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper and then brush with egg yolk. Bake for 10 minutes at 350 °F. During this time, soft boil the remaining eggs. Place eggs in egg cups, break open the shell and dip your fresh-from-the-oven cheese dippers into the egg.
