I don’t even LIKE ice cream but the kids do and I had the ingredients in the cupboard so decided to make this for them. Crushed up Peppermint Crisps are essential, especially on top of a pavlova. I think crushed up Peppermint Crisp bars are one of my earliest food memories, my grandma used to sprinkle them over her pavlova at Christmas. I know that being the one to crush up the bars was a job you wanted (the kids never got to do it). So when I sprinkle the shards of Peppermint Crisp over a dessert the memories it evokes are the best.
600 mis double cream
395 grams condensed milk
Good white chocolate sliced into chunks
scrapings 1/2 a vanilla bean
In an electric mixer beat the cream and condensed milk until a very thick cream consistency is reached. Add the vanilla bean and white chocolate and stir through. Put into freezer proof dish and freeze for about 4 hours.
