The original recipe for the ice cream base I found on Gemma Stafford’s gorgeous baking website, I’ve done my own style with the flavour options, which hopefully you will try and love. This ice cream is not a rock hard type it is very light and fluffy, and almost mousse-like. It is super simple to make and takes just a few minutes to whip up!
No Churn Ice-cream:
500ml thickened cream
390ml (one tin) sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Violent crumble bar
4 Tbs Nutella
¼ C chopped hazelnuts
4 Tbs tinned caramel (“top ’n’ fill”)
2 tsp pink salt flakes
¼ C chopped dates
3 Tbs golden syrup
Whisk the cream either with a mixer or by hand until it thickens and forms stiff peaks. Add in the condensed milk and vanilla extract and whisk again (on med-high or until it stiffens more and forms stiff peaks again). This is the ice cream base you can flavour with whatever you desire!
I split my base in to 4 separate bowls and flavoured each one differently:
Chop or crush a violent crumble bar in a mortar and pestle. Stir through the ice cream base. Place in a container, cover and freeze overnight.
Slightly soften the canned caramel in the microwave. Stir through the ice cream base along with the salt. Place in a container, cover and freeze overnight.
Stir the chopped dates through the ice cream base, and gently fold through the golden syrup so it is rippled through. Place in a container, cover and freeze overnight.
Slightly soften the nutella in the microwave. Stir through the ice cream base along with the chopped hazelnuts. Place in a container, cover and freeze overnight.
All these flavours are totally delicious, this is definitely a ‘sometimes’ treat because the flavours are just so decadent. These ice creams are the perfect match for a warm chocolate pudding or apple crumble right from the oven. But be careful! All of these flavours seemed to magically disappear right from the freezer at my place.
If you do end up trying this let me know! Or if you think a different flavour might be better, then tell me as well, I’d love to hear from you.
Much love M&T
