So, I have no real excuse, I just really wanted to try it.
The kids are not here and the husband is also away, I am not even really an ice cream fan but still, I have so wanted to try this since the Crunchie Ice Cream Slice that I felt I had to make it regardless. I will cut it into serving sizes and individually wrap each piece so that it can be consumed by a more appreciative audience when they are all back home.
Meanwhile I have tried it and found that the Peppermint Crisp was a rather nice alternative to the honeycomb flavour of the Crunchie. It would be a nice touch if you could find a rectangular chocolate biscuit to sandwich the ice cream in but all I had on hand was my malt biscuits (and I don’t think chocolate biscuits come in rectangles here, possible exception being Tim Tam’s but that would be a bit too much of a good thing I think.)
Anyway, same recipe, different chocolate bar. I am going to have to try others now but all of the other flavour chocolate bars that I can think might be nice are going to be difficult to shatter. I’ll make a plan when the time comes. Until then, give this a go and Enjoy!
