    ........must try this but will have to wait until tomorrow - no granulated sugar. My Mum loves crunchie so I'll let her try it first   ::)     and it sounds delicious crumbled into icecream.
    I've just realised it's something else to dip into melted chocolate - that's what crunchie is after all. :D

    I think you are coming obsessed with this chocolate dippping thing ;) its lucky it isn't a recipe for chicken nuggets ;D

    Right, need help.

    I'm normally pretty good at the cooking lark but can't get this at all!! ;D

    First batch - whacked up the heat but it burnt after about 3 mins so tasted disgusting.

    Second batch - kept the heat lower but still boiled it for about 6 mins, added bicarb and it spluttered rather than fizzed!

    So what do I need to get it fizzing?

    mine went solid as a rock and wet on top   sticky and almost unable to get it out of the tin


    ice cream is easy if you have an ice cream maker
    if not there is quite a bit of whisking to do at various stages.

    the vanilla one Ive always used is

    teaspoon of vanilla essence, and mix with it 1/2 pound of sugar. Rub it through a hair sieve, and add 1/2 pint of milk and the yolks of 2 eggs.

    Simmer the mixture over a low temp  for ten minutes, stirring briskly all the time.

    When cool, add 1 pint of cream and a small pinch of salt.  pour into a jelly mould or in an old ice cream container  and freeze,  if you want you can take it out after an hour and give it another whisk. then freeze again

    its loverrly

    chocolate ice cream

    2 pints single cream
    8 0z  sugar
    tiny pinch of salt  
    2 oz of made up cocoa  or 2oz chocolate plain if poss
    1 tablespoon vanilla  ess

    dilute cocoa with hot water ,or melt the chocolate with a bit of hot water to pour easily, add to cream; then add sugar, salt, and flavoring,  whisk well and freeze.

    I tried this and failed. :(

    honeycomb stuck fast to tin........allowed kids to get what they could out with a knife, then threw the remainder (along with the tin) away.

    Not sure what I did wrong, but it's something my children will always remember!
