Raspberry Meringue & Chocolate Ice-Cream Cake

Serves

10

  • 2 litres reduced fat vanilla ice-cream
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat pouring custard
  • 75g meringues or pavlova nests, roughly chopped
  • ½ cup shelled pistachio nuts, chopped
  • 200g Toblerone chocolate bar, chopped
  • 2 x 300g Creative Gourmet frozen Raspberries

Products Used In This Recipe:

  1. Line the base and sides of a 22cm spring-form pan with non-stick baking paper (see tips).
  2. Place ice-cream in a large mixing bowl and set aside to slightly defrost. Using a large metal spoon, stir in custard until combined. Add meringues, pistachios and about three quarters of the chocolate. Stir to combine. Gently stir through 3 cups (375g) frozen Raspberries. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and smooth top. Sprinkle with 1 cup (125g) frozen Raspberries and gently press into mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and freezer overnight.
  3. To serve, remove ice-cream cake from pan and place on a serving plate (you may need to stand it for a short time if it’s frozen very firm). Top with remaining frozen Raspberries, sprinkle with remaining grated chocolate and serve.

    Tip:

    • You can make this fabulous dessert up to 2-3 days ahead of serving, longer and it can be a little too icy.
    • Lightly spray the sides of the pan with light-flavoured oil so the baking paper sticks, this makes it much easier to line the pan.
