after dinner ice cream

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

These ice-cream treats are the perfect way to finish dinner. Or have after lunch. Or as a snack. Or anytime really...

Ingredients (serves 8)

  • 700ml vanilla ice-cream
  • 200g good-quality dark chocolate
  • 25g milk chocolate


  1. Cover a large, flat baking tray with foil. Place small scoops of vanilla ice-cream on the tray and freeze until hard.
  2. Melt chocolates in separate bowls over pans of simmering water. Once melted, set aside to cool.
  3. Transfer ice-cream scoops to a wire rack over a baking tray and spoon the dark chocolate over each scoop; it should harden immediately.
  4. Garnish each with a little of the milk chocolate. Freeze until firm before serving.
