Ice-cream is life. It should be starter, mains + desserts. Back, many years ago, I went to the cinema and visited the Ben + Jerrys counter (of course). I somehow used my persuasive powers to try every flavour there, in excess of 30 magical mixes. "So you didn't even need to buy ice-cream?" I hear you say. Of course I bought some.. Three scoops, extra sprinkles.
Sadly the days of being able to visit my boyfriends Ben and Jerry are long over. My love of ice-cream, however, is not.
Do you remember choc ices? Those miniature bricks of vanilla ice-cream covered in a hard chocolate shell. As my housemate said.. he would find them deep in the depths of his Grandma's freezer when he went to visit as a child. At 27, I still want these beauties in my life. And I'm not the type to settle for a simple "you can't eat those Pheebs". Nope. Instead, I make it from scratch, and enjoy every chocolatey, sweet moment.
So if you are like me, your mouth is watering right about now. And if you are in England you're quietly asking "but it is 3'c outside, can I really make ice-cream? Yes, my friend. Yes you can. So go forth, make these beauties and enjoy. You wont regret it. (What's more it is super easy and quick to make. You just need to wait for the ice-cream to set.)
