Have no idea what I'm talking about? Imagine you've finished your bowl of frosted flakes. Take that bowl of leftover milk and turn it into ice cream! Okay, it sounds gross when you put it that way, but it's so much fun and so tasty! Especially when coated in crunchy cereal.
If you're in New York City this summer, stop by Milk Bar for their cereal milk ice cream (or their stranger and yet amazing pretzel milk ice cream). But don't stop there, stay for a baking class! Sure, you have to book ahead of time and then you have to travel to Brooklyn, but it's totally worth it!
Milk started running these "Bake the Book" classes last year and I took all three introductory classes. I made crack pie, cereal milk, blueberry cookies and confetti cookies. These days you can sign up to make birthday cakes, truffles or pie. Best part? The classes are taught by Christina Tosi herself, aka, the genious behind Milk. Enjoy some pictures from one of my nights spent at Milk.
Warning - If you are visiting from out of town... You will leave these classes with either a whole 6-inch layer cake, crack pie or a dozen cookies. If you go with a friend, you will have twice as much. You will be on sugar high for the remainder of your visit to New York!
Can't get to New York? The classes actually use the Milk cookbook for direction. Pick it up and have a go in your own kitchen. Just be sure to follow the directions so carefully. They are very steppy recipes.
