We all scream from ice-cream...♥

It's the first really warm day in Sydney & at a nice 27 degrees it's time to think about summer BBQ's (that us Aussies are so good at) ice cold drinks & most definitely ice-cream. 

So, while searching ice-cream recipes on Taste.com.au I came across one I'm sure my fiance will beg me to make.

Caramel & macadamia ice-cream ...sandwiches.

When you think ice-cream can't get any better it does...by a mere two tasty biscuits. YUM!

Caramel & macadamia ice-cream sandwiches

Ingredients (serves 12)  Method

250ml (1 cup) milk

600ml thin cream

6 egg yolks

140g (2/3 cup) caster sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

240g (2/3 cup) Nestle Caramel Top'n'Fill

80g (1/2 cup) unsalted macadamia nuts, coarsely chopped

24 wafer biscuits, to serve

  1. Combine milk and cream in a medium saucepan. Place over medium heat and stir until heated through (do not boil).
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla in a bowl until thick and pale.
  3. Gradually stir the milk mixture into the egg mixture. Pour into a clean saucepan and place over low heat. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 10 minutes or until mixture coats the back of the spoon. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly.
  4. Pour the mixture into a shallow metal container. Cover with foil and place in freezer for 2-3 hours or until almost firm.
  5. Use a metal spoon to roughly break up the ice-cream. Use an electric beater to beat until smooth. Return to freezer for 3-4 hours or until almost firm.
  6. Roughly break up the ice-cream. Place the caramel in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Fold the macadamia nuts through the ice-cream. Swirl the caramel through the ice-cream. Return to the freezer for 2-3 hours or until firm.
  7. Top half of the wafers with ice-cream. Top with the remaining wafers. Divide the ice-cream sandwiches among serving plates and serve immediately.
