Little Box Brownie: For the love of Ice Cream

For the love of Ice Cream

Tia Maria Ice Cream

Ice cream would have to be in my top 10 favourite foods, I can't resist an ice cream on a hot day, of which we have had plenty in the past few weeks. I love recipes that are also easy to make and this one is first class, the easiest ice cream ever! With only four ingredients. If you needed a quick dessert you could not freeze it and serve it as a mousse as the mixture is simply delicious on its own.

This recipe has a lug of Tia Maria in it, in which the alcohol is not cooked off, so be warned it is not child friendly. I had originally planned on a Baileys ice cream, however realised when I got home that my Baileys had vanished, so I used Tia Maria instead which I have to say tasted pretty good. Feel free to use which ever they both taste great or leave it out if you prefer no alcohol.

Oh I forgot to mention this is a no churn ice cream! So you don't need an expensive ice cream machine, or to wait up half the night taking your mixture out of the freezer in order to whisk it, like I did with the last ice cream I featured. It comes out light and fluffy and best of all no ice crystals to ruin your mixture.

Tia Maria Ice Cream

600ml thickened cream
200ml condensed milk
1/4cup dutch cocoa powder
1/4cup tia maria

Put all the ingredients into a bowl and whisk until soft peaks form. Then spoon the mixture into a suitable container, that can withstand freezing.
Place in the freezer for 3 hours, or until set.
