Ice cream slice - choose your own flavour

This was my second dessert that I made for Christmas day. 

As our day didn't go quite as planned (my father was under the weather so we all stepped up in our own way to ensure our guests were taken care of) I didn't get a chance to take a photo. So this pic is one my sister posted to Instagram.

We had a 'second' Christmas dinner on New Years Day with even more family so my dad could enjoy all the food when he felt better. And I yet again didn't get a pic once it was sliced. 

But either way it was very yum and even better, very simple to make. 

With just 4 ingredients it's a great way to give everyone something sweet to eat after dinner. 

The recipe comes from nestle and just because I rarely follow a recipe directly. Instead of splitting the ice cream between two trays, I heaped up just one. 

So let's get down to it. 
1 packet of malt o milk biscuits
600mls thickened cream
1 tin condensed milk
4 50g violet crumb bars

Line a brownie tray with parchment paper and place a layer of biscuits on the bottom, cut them up to fill the base. 1 tray will not use the whole packet

In the bowl of a strand mixer whip the cream to stiff peaks then add the condensed milk, whisk until thick. 

Crush the violet crumble bars and fold though 3 of them before spreading the creamy mix across the biscuit base. Level off the top and sprinkle the 4th violet crumble bar over the top. 

Cover and freezer for 4 hours or over night. Cut and serve immediately.

Now for the second tray I made it using crunchie and peppermint crisp bars. But you could use just about any candy bar that takes your fancy.
