Homemade Salted Caramel Chocolate Covered Ice Cream Lollies

So now it seems summer has finally sprung and set to stay (fingers crossed!) its the perfect time to start making and creating your own favourites. Now I love ice cream in general but in the summer the though of sitting in the warmth of the sin enjoying a cold sweet treat sounds idyllic!

Homemade ice lollies are the way forward and the best part is there are so many ways to do this.  Today I am sharing these delicious numbers with you - all you will need in addition to the ingredients is ice lolly moulds. I got mine from Amazon!

There are a couple of ways to recreate these;

1) buy the ice cream (flavour of choice), place in the moulds and top with your favourite chocolate and nuts

2) Homemake the icecream and then finish off covering in chocolate and crushed nuts.

I am going to share the second one today and I admit, maybe not my healthiest recipe (but I am sharing how to make this vegan and paleo too so if you want this one keep scrolling!!) but we are all human and allowed to enjoy the finer things and even better all you need is 3 ingredients for this ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 300ml double cream
  • 200g caramel 
  • 1tsp rock salt
  • 200g Choc to cover
  • Hazelnuts 

Method

Whisk together the cream, caramel and salt until stiff + freeze for 4 hours in the moulds..... um, that it - couldn't be simpler.

Melt the chocolate and crush the nuts in a blender.

Once these are frozen take them out of the moulds and cover in the cooled chocolate - be quick though as the ice cream will melt, cover in the nut and pop back in the freezer. I put mine on a chopping board as it can get a little messy!

Gluten Free + Paleo Recipe

Wanting to keep it a little healthier... here you go!

Ingredients

  • 700ml full fat coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 150g coconut sugar
  • 1tsp vanilla bean
  • 1tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup 
  • 200-400g chocolate
  • Nuts to top

Method

Open up the cans of coconut milk which by the way need to be in the fridge for 3 hrs prior! Now, you want the cream part (yum, don't fear it) the liquid you can use for something else. then Combine all the ingredients except the chocolate and nuts until smooth in a high speed blender if possible! Place in moulds.

Freeze for 5-6 hours hours.  Melt the chocolate and allow to cool so it doesn't melt the ice-cream too much, top with nuts and pop back into the freezer for 2 hours then enjoy!! 

Recipes you will be enjoying all summer and impressing your friends with !! Enjoy!
