Valentines Day - Strawberries Flambeed in Vodka with Hot Ice Cream

    2 large scoops vanilla ice cream, softened
    1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
    2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 cup white sugar
    2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
    2 fluid ounces vodka


    Stir together the vanilla ice cream and hot pepper sauce in a medium bowl. Place in the freezer until firm.

    Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Stir in the sugar until dissolved, then add the strawberries. Cook, stirring occasionally until the strawberries are hot. Pour the vodka over the berries, and carefully light with a match. Let the flames burn off, then remove the pan from the heat.

    Scoop the hot ice cream into two bowls, then divide the strawberry vodka sauce between them. Serve immediately.
