Frozen Budino Pops are Back!
Between August 14-16, you can get a legendary Budino Pop at Verde. The confection is based on the popular dessert from Barbuzzo Restaurant. Chef Turney wraps a core of salted caramel and dark chocolate cookie crumbs with frozen caramel pudding then hand-dips it in dark chocolate and sprinkles a few grains of Maldon sea salt on top. Each comes on a popsicle stick and makes for a perfect summertime treat.
Verde, 108 South 13th Street, 215.546.8700, VerdePhiladelphia.com
