Serious dessert aficionados will have a chance to try something way beyond the ordinary at Häagen-Dazs Shops nationwide this summer thanks to executive pastry chef Gale Gand, renowned cookbook author, Food Network star, and co-owner of the famed Tru Restaurant in Chicago. Combining Häagen-Dazs ice creams and pure, indulgent ingredients together with her critically acclaimed culinary style, Chef Gand created three signature Dazzler™ frozen desserts —Zesty Lemon Meringue Pie, Triple Chocolate Black Forest Cake, and Tira Mi Su.

“Summertime is the perfect excuse for enjoying big, refreshing desserts,” says Gand. “With these new treats, I reinvented classic desserts in surprising new ways, making them the perfect summer indulgence.” Gand chose three of her favorite desserts and recreated them with Häagen-Dazs finesse and craftsmanship. The Zesty Lemon Meringue Pie is described as “ a classic pie re-imagined as a sundae.” It combines Häagen-Dazs’s new Light Vanilla Bean ice cream, lemon sorbet, lemon curd and vanilla wafer crumbles and is finished with whipped cream and a cookie garnish. The Triple Chocolate Black Forest Cake includes Häagen-Dazs Triple Chocolate ice cream, fudge brownie chunks, cherries, and whipped cream. The Tira Mi Su Dazzler features Mocha Chip ice cream, chunks of yellow cake and Italian-style mascarpone, finished with chocolate whipped cream topping and a dusting of cocoa.

Ice cream lovers can enjoy Gale Gand’s signature Dazzler frozen desserts in their local Häagen-Dazs Shop starting Friday, June 10 and continuing all summer long.
