These are a huge favourite in my house over the warm,festive days during summer. They are dead easy to make – you don’t even have to prepare anything if you don’t have the time or simply don’t feel like fussing.
I like to buy white chocolate and cranberry or double chocolate choc chip cookies and either vanilla or chocolate ice cream. Don’t go for the cheapest ice cream here as you want a rich and creamy filling, not watery and icy. Not that there’s any kids dwelling the passages of my house, but when friends with kids are visiting, there’s plenty of happy kiddie faces all round.
It’s also nice to layer the cookies and ice cream in a dish, stick it back in the freezer and scoop it out when ready to serve.
