I hadn't made any ice cream for a while so I though it was time to crack out another "Ice Cream Sunday" recipe. This time I'm going for a true weekend treat. This is a beautifully creamy, smooth and rich Crunchie ice cream which big and little kids a like will really enjoy. The recipe uses Crunchie rocks which you can find in most supermarkets but you can use bash some Crunchie bars with a rolling pin instead if you can't find them. 

Whip some up today to serve with your Sunday pud. You know you want to!

Rockin Crunchie Ice Cream

500ml While Milk
500ml Double Cream
2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
2 Whole Eggs And 6 Egg Yolks
275g Golden Caster Sugar
130g Bag Of Crunchie Rocks

  1. Place the milk, cream and vanilla in a large pan and heat the mixture to a boil on a very low heat. As soon as the mixture starts to bubble remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Place the whole eggs, yolks and sugar into a bowl and beat together until thick and creamy. Slowly add in cooled milk mixture, beating continuously until everything is well combined.
  3. Place this mixture back into a saucepan on a medium heat and stir the mixture constantly until it thickens. Make sure it doesn't boil and the mixture will be thick enough when it coats the back of a metal spoon.
  4. Place a bowl into a large bowl filled with iced water and pour the mixture into the empty bowl. Whisk the mixture until it cools completely.
  5. Transfer the cool mixture to your ice cream machine and begin churning. Whilst the ice cream churns break up the cruchie rocks into smaller pieces and just as the ice cream is starting to thicken add them into the churner and churn to completion.
Transfer the mixture to a freezable container and freeze until you want some. I find this ice cream defrosts relatively quickly than most so only take it out of the freezer about 10 minutes before your ready to stir.

If you don't have an ice cream churner you can transfer the mixture straight to freezer after step four and take it out every hour and give it a good mix through with a fork to remove any ice crystals so that it is nice and smooth when ready.

Serve with the dessert of your choice. It's incredibly versatile so will work with most desserts or just scoop yourself a big bowl of it on it's own. Trust me. Its is that rockin!
