Posh ice cream sandwiches
- Preparation and cooking time
- plus freezing
- Makes 7
- pack pink wafer biscuits
- ½ x 500ml tub pistachio ice cream (vanilla or chocolate also works well)
- 100g bar white chocolate
- 50g shelled pistachio , finely chopped
- STEP 1
Before you start, make sure you have space for a flat tray in your freezer. arrange half the wafer biscuits on the tray. Spoon the ice cream into a food processor and pulse until just smooth (be careful not to not let it melt too much). Spoon quickly into a disposable piping bag, cut off the end (a little narrower than the width of a biscuit) and pipe an ice cream log onto the biscuits. Try to squeeze from the end of the bag, so that the heat from your hands doesn’t melt the ice cream.
- STEP 2
Place a second biscuit on top to complete the sandwiches and press together a little to squeeze the ice cream to the edges. Put the tray into the freezer and freeze for at least an 1 hr.
- STEP 3
Melt the chocolate in a microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Tip the pistachios into a dish. Working quickly, dip the end of each frozen sandwich into the melted chocolate, then into the pistachios. Put back onto your tray and freeze again for 1 hr. Will keep for 1 month frozen in an airtight container between sheets of baking parchment.
