Ice Cream with Assorted Coatings

It would be hard to call this a recipe; it’s more of a line-up of ideas for rolling your favourite ice-cream in. There’s bound to be one to suit every member of the family. I find it easiest to place each ingredient in a plastic bag and roughly crush with a rolling pin. Transfer to a tray or large platter and roll away!


vanilla or your favourite flavoured ice cream

Coating suggestions
chocolate-coated nuts and roasted coffee beans
roasted nuts such as almonds, hazelnuts and macadamias
pistachio nut
flavoured chocolates such as chilli and lime, orange or coffee
sesame and peanut crisps from Asian food stores
Maltesers, Crunchie bar or other honeycomb bars
chocolate brownie, whizzed in a food processor to coarse crumbs

We have used crushed, freeze-dried strawberries from Fresh As, crushed chocolate-coated nuts and chopped pistachios.
