snickers ice cream

 As promised I am back with my Snickers ice cream recipe
I made it over again on the weekend and took note of how much I put in of each ingredient and fixed up something that didn't work quite right last time.

Here is the recipe:

Snickers Ice Cream
Ice Cream base:
1 1/2 C milk
1/2C dextrose (if you still eat sugar just use the same amount of white sugar)
1/2 C rice malt syrup, this gives it a yummy caramel flavour and is also fructose free
pinch of salt
3 heaped tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 C cream

Mix milk, dextrose, salt and syrup in a saucepan until just before boiling- do not let boil!
In a separate bowl (I use a 1L glass pyrex jug) whisk the eggs- do this while the milk is heating.
Pour the hot milk mixture into the eggs and whisk, then pour back into saucepan and stir until it starts to coat the back of the wooden spoon, (do not let this boil either or it will curdle!)
Pour back into jug and add cream.
Cool in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Place mixture in your ice cream maker, while it is churning you need to make the mix ins.

Caramel Nut Mixture:
1T butter
1/4 C rice malt syrup
1T cream
3/4 C salted peanuts

Put a saucepan on the stove and allow to heat for a couple of minutes,
then add 1T of butter when that has melted add 1/4 cup rice syrup, then add 1 T cream and mix, add 3/4 C salted peanuts (you can chop them a little but I leave them whole) and mix through, place in fridge to cool a little, while you make the ganache.

Chocolate Ganache:
1/4 cream
50g 70% dark chocolate (I use Lindt cooking chocolate)
Bring cream to the boil, remove from heat and add 50g of 70% chocolate and stir until smooth.
Set aside until ice cream is ready.

When your ice cream is churned take in out and put it into a large plastic container, pour caramel nut mixture over the top and swirl through- don't over mix, then pour over ganache and swirl it through, you want swirls of chocolate and nutty caramel through your ice cream- if you over mix it - don't worry it will still taste fantastic!
Freeze for 2-3 hrs before serving.
Enjoy- try not to eat it all at once! 

NB. The chocolate is not fructose free, but the small amount used with the cream brings it down to an acceptable level, combined with the ice cream the amount of fructose is almost negligible.
