My teeth hurt just looking at the Halo, the new ice cream-filled glazed doughnut by chef Barb Batiste of B Sweet Dessert Bar in Los Angeles. For $5, the bakery will put a scoop of ice cream --vanilla, mint chocolate chip, cookies and cream, rocky road, chocolate malted crunch, or ube-- inside a glazed donut and seal it together in a warm press.
The brain freeze-inducing treat is advertised as "Hot outside, cold inside, yummy all over!"
Batiste was inspired to combine ice cream and doughnuts by her father Angel, who passed away five years ago.
He and Barb had a very special relationship; there's a chair marked for him in the restaurant, and Barb has fond memories of getting Thrifty's ice cream with him every other day as a child. His name was Angel, and after he died, Barb decided to honor him by combining his two favorite desserts: doughnuts and ice cream. The circle reminded Barb of a halo hanging above Angel's head after his passing; hence, the halo dessert was born.
