During the school holidays, it is hard to come up with ideas to keep to kids entertained whilst the weather is rubbish. We try to get out as much as possible, but it seems that the weather goes against us and so, on days like that, we stay at home and get crafty or make our own recipes up.
And so, to celebrate the summer, Choc Nibbles has challenged us to use their delicious chocolaty treats as a core ingredient in a frozen dessert in their #iceicenibble challenge.
You will need:
100g melted butter
3/4 different flavours of ice cream
Choc Nibbles (as many flavours as you like)
- Line a loaf tin with baking parchment (this will make the slice is easy to remove afterwards)
- Crush the digestives and 50g of Choc Nibbles into crumbs using a freezer bag and a rolling pin. Mix this with the melted butter and squash down into the loaf tin. Freeze for hour an hour.
- Add a layer of ice cream and then freeze again for half an hour. (it's advisable to get soft scoop ice cream as it will spread in the tin easier)
- Keep layering with different flavoured ice creams and Choc Nibbles in between each flavour. make sure to freeze in between each layer.
- When the loaf tin is full, sprinkle with Choc Lick and freeze till ready to serve.
- Slowly lift the ice cream slice out of the loaf tin and remove the baking parchment.
- Serve immediately in slices.
And that's it, simple and easy to make, one that the kids can do on their own.
As you can see from ours, we went for a mint and chocolate theme. So we used mint chocolate chip, white mint, chocolate and vanilla ice creams and a mix of mint and regular Choc Nibbles. This was a favourite with the boys as they love mint ice cream.
I loved creating this recipes as it's something that the boys can do on their own with me just watching and helping with reaching the freezer and melting the butter.
And it doesn't stop there. You can choose any flavour you like. Go for a jammy ice cream slice using raspberry ripple ice cream and Jammy Choc Nibbles. You could even put the Posh Choc Nibbles in the biscuit base to give it an extra chocolatey kick.
A perfect recipe to make in advance and then use when needed. Do let me know if you give this a try, it would be great to see your variations.
