Ferrero rocher magnums

When it comes to recipes where I really feel I’ve hit the nail on the head, I get a bit excited sometimes. Having made these, I knew I was onto something, so quickly photographed them (also quickly because it was so hot they were melting and because baby H was losing her patience at not being able to eat them), uploaded my pics and posted a photo on Instagram promising the recipe to you guys that very evening.

I just need to quickly make dinner and put the kids to bed, I thought. What I didn’t account for was the beeping smoke alarm in my bedroom telling me it was low on battery. After an hour of my MILOD (mother in law of dreams, who was staying over as Mr H was away for work) and I trying locate screwdriver & ladder and take the cover off we admitted defeat and I went knocking on doors in my PJs to see if anyone could help. Luckily my next door neighbours are possibly the loveliest family out there, and within 30 seconds of being up the stepladder Adrian from next door had fixed the problem.

I was delighted that my night was no longer sentenced to be my interrupted by every minute on the minute beeps, but had totally forgotten the task at hand. So here I am now, lying in bed feeding baby H 2.0 to sleep, about to drift off myself too, but desperate to get this published for you guys because it’s about to get a whole lotta hot this week so ice cream is a must. Almost as much as sun cream. So I’ll leave it there…good night and sweet ice cream dreams!

Makes six small ice lollies

Ingredients

For the ice cream

  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut cacao butter
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 medium bananas, sliced and frozen

For the coating

  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp hazelnut cacao butter
  • 4 toasted chopped hazelnuts

In a food processor, blend the ice cream ingredients together until mixed. Pour into ice cream moulds and leave for a few hours to set.

Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan then stir in the other ingredients. Remove the lollies from their moulds and dunk into the chocolate one by one. Store in the freezer, or eat them as soon as the chocolate sets!

Love, Mrs H xx
