• Description:

    It’s amazing how easily some biscuits and a tub of ice cream can be transformed into both an extraordinary Christmas dessert and a great way of spending time with the kids. Fun and colourful, these ice cream sandwiches can be made using any or all of your favourite biscuits. Just hand everyone a spoon and let them build their own yummy towers, then finish the creations off with a swirl of decadent chocolate sauce. Serves: 12.

    1 cup Orley Whip or fresh cream

    3. Use BarOne instead of chocolate slab.
