Last week we asked you guys in our social media channels to give us your helping hand and to tell us your favorite ice cream flavors. We received over 200 mouth-watering ideas and happily noticed that many of them were already covered in the book, for example, blueberry pie, mango melon, matcha white chocolate, licorice, cherry garcia, salted caramel and so on.

Still, we managed to pick two winners who will win free copies of our e-book and whose favorite ice cream will be included in the book. The other winner is Salla, who wished for a healthier version of Snickers Ice Cream and the other one is Minna whose favorite ice cream is Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches. Both recipes will be now found in the book, and in our web sites too, as tastings. The recipe for the super amazing Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches is found at my co-author Tuulia´s page, and the recipe for Snickers ice cream will be presented here – in a cake form!

This chocolate covered caramel peanut butter ice cream cake is just a perfect treat for summer parties. People who love peanut butter and caramel will adore it!

And don´t be frightened if this recipe seems to have a little too many steps for your taste – 90 % of the recipes in our book will be super easy, because we think both summer and this book should be merely for lazy pleasures. But in some occasions you just need to have a few extra layers to make it festive – like now when announcing this super cool ice cream news!

SNICKERS ICE CREAM CAKE


Snickers Ice Cream Cake

(Dairy free, Gluten free, Refined sugar free, raw, vegan)

Ice cream:

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 can (400 ml or 1 ¾ cups) full fat coconut milk (refrigerated over-night)
  • ½ cup (120 ml) peanut butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a tiny pinch of sea salt

In the middle:

  • ½ cup raw crushed peanuts (or hazel nuts) + 0,25 tsp sea salt

Caramel filling:

  • 6 fresh dates (pitted)
  • 2 tbsp coconut syrup (or organic honey)
  • ½ cup (120 ml) un-sweetened peanut butter
  • 4 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • a tiny pinch of celtic sea salt
  • ½ cup coconut milk

Chocolate frosting:

  • 4 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
  • ¼ cup cacao butter (melted)
  • 4 tbsp raw cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp organic honey or rice syrup (or sweetener of your choice)

On top:

  • ½ cup crushed raw peanuts (or hazel nuts)
  • 2 tbsp coconut syrup (or organic honey)

Cake tin diameter: 9 x 19 cm / 3.5 x 7.5 inch

Ice Cream:

Cover the cake tin with parchment paper so that the cake is easier to remove later. Put the bananas, peanut butter, coconut milk and vanilla to the blender and blend until smooth. Taste and if you want, sweeten for example with coconut syrup or honey. Pour the ice cream mixture into the tin.

Crush the peanuts and add a pinch sea salt. Add the crushed nuts on top of the ice cream and make the caramel filling.

Caramel filling:

Place all the ingredients into a blender but only half of the coconut milk. Blend until smooth. Add more coconut milk if needed so that you will get the consistency of a smooth caramel sauce or make it as runny as you desire. Pour about half of the filling into the cake tin on the top of the ice cream. Place the tin into a freezer for about 3 hours or until solid.

Chocolate frosting:

Whisk the ingredients until you have a smooth sauce. Taste and add more sweetness if desired.

Assembly:

When the ice cream is solid remove the ice cream cake from the tin and place it onto a serving plate. Pour the rest of the caramel filling on top of the ice cream cake. On top of the caramel filling pour the chocolate frosting. Sprinkle some crushed peanuts on top and pour some syrup or honey on. Let the cake melt a little while in the fridge so that it is not completely frozen, serve and enjoy!
