With only 4 ingredients and very minimal effort required, you can create beautiful, individual ice cream sandwiches that are just as delicious!

Here is what you will need:
A rectangular tin (about 20cm x 30cm), spoon, fork, knife, small bowl, airtight container for storage.

2l vanilla ice cream
360g tin Caramel Treat
200g Tennis Biscuits
150g Peppermint Crisp

Step 1:

Allow the ice cream to soften at room temperature for 10-20 minutes or until it is spreadable. Spread it roughly into a rectangular tin, about 20cm x 30cm. Leave a few gaps for the caramel.

Step 2:
Give the caramel treat a good stir until it is smooth. Pour spoonful’s over the ice cream and swirl together to create a marbled effect.

Step 3:
Spread the top until it’s smooth, then freeze for 3-4 hours or overnight.

Step 4:
Chop the peppermint crisp into small pieces and set aside in a small bowl.

Step 5:
Using a Tennis biscuit as a guide, cut squares of the ice cream mixture out and sandwich together with a Tennis biscuit on each side.

Step 6:
Roll the ice cream sandwich into the chopped Peppermint Crisp, coating all the edges.
