Easy Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream
23 February 2011 in Uncategorized
I think I’ve just about caught up on work and sleep since my trip to Cape Town. I have to say that the quality of the speakers at the Indaba was excellent and I picked up some good tips in the photography and styling workshop in the afternoon.
I was fortunate enough to win the much coveted prize of a weekend at African Relish in the Karoo, so that means another trip to Cape Town is on the cards *happy face* Ishay has written a blog about her fabulous experience there, the course that I will be attending is called Food Bloggers do the Karoo. Please go and look at their website, collection and return to Cape Town is included in the price…. so who’s going to join me?
Browniegirl did such a good job with all the arrangements and the goodie bag we all received was full of awesomeness!
One of the many things in the goodie bag was this book by Bakers Biscuits.
There are some interesting recipes and this easy-peasy ice cream caught my eye.
Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream
1 pkt Bakers mint romany creams
1 litre chocolate ice cream softened
2 x 49g slabs of peppermint crisp
45 ml peppermint Liqueur (optional)
Chop the romany creams into small pieces, sprinkle with liqueur (if using)
Fold the biscuit into the ice cream and return to the freezer.
(I opted to break up one of the peppermint crisps and mixed that in as well)
To serve, spoon balls of ice cream and sprinkle with coarsely chopped peppermint crisp and garnish with mint leaves.
PS The chocolate wafer was an After Eight Dinner Mint.
