This afternoon I experienced the joy of being the ice-cream lady. The extremity of how easy and delicious this recipe is can only be found out by actually making it for yourself. I have to admit, I was a little bit suspicious about how it would turn out considering my past failures regarding ice-cream. I cannot wait to try other variations with different jams and spreads, my boys have already requested Nutella for the next batch. I used Bon Maman caramel spread for this batch and upon serving I sprinkled a small dusting of cracked sea salt.

(Serves 4, prep 10 minutes and 6 hours freezing)

600ml Thickened cream
1 can condensed milk
1 cup of a sweet or chocolatey/caramel spread of your choice
Toppings: fresh fruit, grated chocolate, coco-pops, cornflakes

1. Using a large mixing bowl, pour the cream and beat with an electric mixer for 
a couple of minutes until thickened and kind of frothy

2. Add the condensed milk and continue to beat until mixed through
(be careful not to over-beat)

3.Pour into a shallow dish, I used a square baking tin, but any shallow glass or metal dish would do

4. Dollop in spoonfuls of the chosen jam or chocolate spread and using a bamboo skewer 
swirl the dollops of jam or chocolate/caramel spread through the ice-cream mixture a couple of times

5. Cover with glad wrap and freeze over night, or at least six hours

6. When ready to serve, let sit at room temperature for a couple of minutes before 
scooping into small ramekins, mini waffle cones or espresso cups and enjoy with some toppings.
