Gummy Bear Ice Cream Slice

Gummy Bear Ice Cream Slice Feature

With the weather being warmer I think it’s a great time to start enjoying sweet icy treats, like this Gummy bear Ice Cream Slice.

Last week Blake (Master 9) and I were chatting food, we do a lot of that around here, especially the whole “what’s for dinner tonight Mum?”

We were actually chatting sweet food and Blake said “can you make some of those Butterscotch Blondies this weekend Mum?”, I replied with “I was actually thinking of doing a little experiment this weekend, what do you think about a gummy bear ice cream slice”, his eyes lit up and he was licking his lips (literally!!), no words were needed.

Sunday morning we set to work, and I will add there wasn’t a whole lot of work involved. This little treasure only requires 5 basic supermarket ingredients, 6 if you want to top it off with some popping candy like we did for some extra excitement!

Gummy bears were always a favourite of mine when I was little and to be honest if we ever have a packet in the house I still find myself (hiding myself away from the kidlets) enjoying a couple.

Ice cream slice is not something I make regularly, it really is a treat. As much as the kids would love to eat standard ice cream everyday we limit it to a couple of times a week, it’s known here as a ‘sometimes food’…….but I do have to say how good is ‘sometimes food!!!!!’ (shhhh don’t tell the kids!)

Back to the slice you can have this whipped up in about 10 minutes, pop it in the freezer and be eating it 6 hours later!

With the 25th of December just around the corner this would make a great little dessert for kidlets on Christmas day , trust me those frozen gummy bears draw out the enjoyment perfectly with all that chewing, much more entertaining than your stock standard bowl of ice cream.

Prep time

Author:
Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 1 x 250g packet Arnotts Chocolate ripple biscuits
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 1 x 395g tin condensed milk
  • 500ml cream
  • 1 x 175g packet Gummy bears
  • Popping Candy for decorating (I found this in the baking isle at woolworths)
Instructions
  1. Line a square cake tin with baking paper. I used one that measured 20cm x 20cm x 5cm.
  2. Crush biscuits down to a fine crumb (I used a food processor), add melted butter and stir to combine (mixture should resemble sticky breadcrumbs), press into prepared tin (bottom of a glass works a treat). Place in fridge to set.
  3. Using a food processor or electric mixer whiz the cream and condensed milk together until they just thicken (you don't want to curdle your cream), stir through gummy bears and pour over prepared biscuit base.
  4. Cover with foil and freeze for 6 hours or even better overnight.
  5. Cut slice into squares and if your feeling adventurous sprinkle some popping candy over the top, extra gummy bears or some biscuits crumbs would work too.
  6. How easy is that!
  7. Keep any leftovers in freezer fro up to 2 weeks if they last that long!

I hope you enjoy this delicious little treat, it’s extra enjoyable when you can share it with some little people!

Do you have a favourite cold dessert you like to enjoy? I’d love to hear about it.

Until the next time……
