Creme Egg Ice Cream

Happy Easter!

With Ice Cream Sunday this month falling on Easter Sunday, I felt that I should draw my inspiration for this month's ice cream flavour from the true meaning on the season: chocolate eggs! :-P

This ice cream tastes far too good, especially when you consider how easy it is to make. No machine, no raw egg; just 4 ingredients to make the creamiest ice cream I've made yet!

4 cadbury creme eggs 
150g dark chocolate
150ml sweetened condensed milk
500ml double cream

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 4-5 hours
Serves: 6 - 8
  1. Pop your Creme Eggs in the freezer. It will make them easier to handle later on!
  2. Break the chocolate into chunks and pop this into a large microwavable bowl with the condensed milk. Microwave for 30 seconds - 1 minute, then stir until the chocolate has melted and the ingredients come together to form a fudgey sauce. Pop this to one side.
  3. Take your creme eggs from the freezer, unwrap them, and chop them into chunks. Put this to one side.
  4. Whip you cream to stiff peaks. Mix half of the cream into the chocolate fudge until well combined, then stir in 3/4 of the creme egg pieces.
  5. Fold the remaining creme into the chocolate mixture very gently so as not to loose too much of the air - until the mixture combines to form a rich chocolaty mousse. Pour this into a freezer tub, level with the back of a spoon, then sprinkle the remaining creme egg pieces over the top. Place the lid on this and then freeze for 4-5 hours before serving.
  6. Marvel at the deliciousness of you creation, and debate with yourself on whether or not you should share.

Happy Thoughts
