The hubby was really sweet and let me have the whole day to myself yesterday. I went and had a facial, walked through some boutique stores that I dare not enter with a pram and went to a girlfriend’s place for dinner. To say thank you, I made my lovely hubby a batch of Rocky Road Ice Cream. He loves everything in it, so I knew it would be a hit.
If you’re not into making ice cream, or don’t have an ice cream maker, you could add the Turkish Delight, coconut, peanuts and marshmallows to some softened store bought chocolate ice cream. No need to use a fancy ice cream either.
Rocky Road Ice Cream
makes about 1.2 litres
1/2 cup sugar
3 tbsp cocoa
2 x 55g Turkish Delight bars
1/3 cup shredded coconut
100g marshmallows, about 18 marshmallows
1/3 cup roasted peanuts (not the salted ones)
Whisk the eggs until foamy. Slowly whisk in the sugar. Whisk in a glug of the cream and then add the cocoa. Whisk in the remaining cream and then the milk. Chill in the fridge until you’re ready to churn the ice cream. If you are making it more than a few hours later, press a piece of cling wrap onto the surface of the mix, so that it doesn’t form a skin.
Churn the ice cream in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturers instructions. While it is churning, chop the Turkish Delight bars into small pieces and chop the marshmallows into quarters.
When the ice cream is ready, scoop it into a container and quickly stir in the marshmallows, coconut, Turkish Delight and peanuts. Put in the freezer to firm up for a few hours, before eating.
