I know, its been months. I have no real reason why. I guess I just needed a break.
But I am back, and fully committed to ensuring that, amidst all the new years resolutions, there is a promise to make something delicious every now and again. Sorry if that messes with your new years resolutions to eat healthier ;)
Summer is in FULL swing here in South AFrica! I think last week has had the hottest day of the season! Phew! So I found a way to cool things down a bit!
This recipe does require an ice-cream maker, but don't despair if you don't own one - just use this no churn chocolate ice-cream recipe from Carla's Confections as your base and you will be A-for-away!
Ok - lets get down to business...
And it starts here - with chocolate of course!
And then it moves onto this (insert heart-eyes face right here!). You can buy it ready-made, or you can make your own caramel treat.
Time for the chocolate ice-cream part.
I guess if you wanted to you could stick a straw in right here and slurp it all up.
Mine, however, did make it into my ice-cream maker.
And then all the non-ice cream stuff that you have been nibbling on throughout the process get added - if there are any left!
And you get this.
The perfect way to cool down on a HOT summers day. To be frankly honest, I kind of think this is a perfect ANYTIME snack, but then again, I am a 'sweet' blogger and I feel that it is OK to eat cake for breakfast!
