Ingredients

  • 600 ml double cream
  • 200 g (half a standard sized tin) condensed milk
  • large sprig fresh mint
  • half vanilla pod
  • 250 g Easter chocolate - mixed or otherwise

Instructions

  • Warm 100ml of the cream with the mint in a covered pan until nearly boiling. Turn off the heat and leave to infuse until cool.
  • Strain the cooled cream and add it along with the rest of the cream to a large bowl. Add the condensed milk.
  • Scrape out the seeds from the vanilla pod and add to the cream (you could use vanilla extract, or ground vanilla pod or even vanilla paste).
  • Whip the cream until soft peaks form.
  • Roughly chop the chocolate (or place in a bag and bash with a rolling pin) and add to the cream, reserving a couple of spoonfuls to scatter on top if desired. Fold into the cream.
  • Pour the cream into a 1 litre tub and scatter over the reserved chocolate. Place in the freezer.

Notes

Yields one litre plus a little bit more.
