More S’mores at Chaos & Cream

The Denver Post - - FEATURES - By Allyson Reedy

Thai-style rolled ice cream is the food ver­sion of frosé in sum­mer 2017. It’s trendy, cool (in this case, lit­er­ally) and it’s all over your In­sta­gram. But the unique ice cream from Chaos & Cream is more than just a pretty face — it’s ac­tu­ally quite tasty.

It all starts with a big, frozen stain­less-steel cir­cle. The liq­uid base cream is poured onto the cir­cle, and then mix-ins like straw­ber­ries, Oreos or, in the case of the S’mores fla­vor, gra­ham crack­ers, Her­shey’s choco­late and marsh­mal­lows, are blended into the base as it freezes.

The chilled cream is spread thin over the cir­cle like a gi­ant ice cream tor­tilla and then scraped up into cute lit­tle frozen taquito-like rolls.

“Our cus­tomers love the prepa­ra­tion — com­plete with a marsh­mal­low toasted with a crème brûlée torch — as much as they love the fla­vor,” owner Brian Rosen said.

While Chaos & Cream doesn’t have its own brick and mor­tar store­front, you can find it in­side The Source Mon­days through Thurs­days from 3-9 p.m. and at var­i­ous farm­ers mar­kets through­out sum­mer.
