[Chocolate and ANZAC ice cream sandwiches]

Thank you to everyone who played along with my chocolate dilemma. You all well and truly ignited my creativity and I’ve had the difficult task of choosing what to make! Without further ado, here’s my first solution.

Some of your comments mentioned biscuits, ice cream and peanut butter among other delicious things, which made me immediately think of this combo. I went to the shops to search for ginger snaps but a a packet of ANZAC biscuits caught my eye and there was no turning back.

The Bear absolutely loves ANZAC biscuits. I’ve made them for him many times, but he says they’re never as good as the ones his Mum makes. He remembers coming home from school to a freshly baked batch – she’s a talented lady that Mama Bear.

For those of you who don’t know what ANZAC biscuits are, you can read about them here. They’re made of rolled oats, dessicated coconut, golden syrup and butter. In my humble opinion, they’re the best ‘bread’ for these sandwiches, but feel free to substitute other biscuits and chocolate spread if you don’t have access to the Nestle product (maybe try Nutella).

But don’t think I’ve finished with this product yet! I loved the comments about ricotta and choux pastry, so expect more chocolate recipes in the very near future – it’s a 3 part series at the very least!

One last thing: This recipe has been entered into Grace’s Beat The Heat event over at her blog A Southern Grace. She’s a fab baker living in NY – her Cinnamon cake with cinnamon frosting has stolen my heart.

Happy cooking, Christie

I’m not going to provide amounts because it depends on how thick you like it! This is just a guide – please experiment to your heart’s content – the possibilities are endless.

Spread chocolate onto the back of one biscuit. Top with a dollop of peanut butter and a scoop of ice cream. Place another biscuit on top and sandwich together.

Leave to stand for 3-5 minutes to allow the ice cream to melt slightly. Repeat as many times as desired.
