It's perfectly understandable that it's at times like this that busy cooks welcome shortcuts in the kitchen and it's with this in mind that I say if you can't make it...fake it...and your guests will be none the wiser when you dish up this utterly Delicious! Chocolate Oreo Ice-Cream.
DON'T TELL A SOUL CHEAT'S OREO ICE-CREAM
20 chocolate Oreo biscuits
1 liter good quality vanilla ice-cream
200 grams melted chocolate
1 cup whipped cream
1//2 cup toasted almonds/hazelnuts
1: Crush the biscuits - save a few for decoration - and gently mix into softened ice-cream.
2: Gently mix in half the melted chocolate and cream then mix in remaining chocolate and nuts.
3: Freeze and serve with halved Oreos lined across the the top of the ice-cream loaf to decorate.
COOK'S NOTES: It's best to melt chocolate in the microwave as it burns very easily and burnt chocolate cannot be saved.
