Recipe from: 22 September 2015
Preparation time: 45 min + Freezing time


  • 2
    vanilla ice cream
  • 1
    large peppermint crisp chocolate, crushed
  • green food colouring
  • 1
    packet of flat, square biscuits (for example, tea biscuits)
Servings: Change Serving


Let the ice cream soften. Stir half the chocolate and a drop of green food colouring into the ice cream.

Line one large or two smaller containers with foil. Spread the ice cream into the containers to form a layer 3cm thick. Freeze overnight.

One hour before assembling the sandwiches, put the biscuits into the freezer.

Work quickly when assembling. Remove the ice cream from the containers by lifting up the tin foil. Use a knife dipped in hot water to cut the ice cream into squares the same size as the biscuits.

Use a spatula to lift the ice-cream squares onto the biscuits. Cover each one with another biscuit to form a sandwich. Dip the edges of the sandwiches into the remaining crushed peppermint crisp. Refreeze until ready to serve.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
