Welcome to my ice cream maker Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ice Cream.
You know the one thing I hate about brands? When they bring out a one off product, I fall in love with it and I never see it again! It really drives me crazy and usually happens for either chocolate or ice cream.
Well in this case I remember the most delicious ever McDonalds McFlurry that came with Terry’s Chocolate Orange. It was beyond delicious. Then (if memory serves me correctly) this was followed up with a McFlurry based on Cadbury’s Caramel. Both of these were AMAZING and I was gutted when I finished the ice cream and wanted another and another.
Plus I am a huge Terry’s Chocolate Orange fan (apart from the prices you pay for it here in Portugal) and have fond memories of the TV advert in the 90’s that had a curvy Dawn French with the tagline “its not Terry’s its mine!”.
I never saw either of them again and I believe they were a one off special to go with a sporting event that was being promoted at McDonalds.
Then every now and again a different “one off” flavour at McDonalds would do the rounds and I would fall in love and then it would be GONE.
So when we moved to Portugal we wondered what would be on offer. Well I should have given more attention to the UK because they never have any special flavours that I like. Right now we have Snickers as a one off, though really not good given my nut allergy. But most of the time it is limited to either Oreos or KitKat and that is it. And neither of them appeals to me.
And as a result whenever I think of a McFlurry or a Sundae I dream about Terry’s Chocolate Orange and what I could make at home instead. So with the addition of our ice cream maker I have come up with a delicious twist of the Terry’s Chocolate Orange McFlurry and I think this is going to become a family favourite!#Icecream Maker #Terry’s Chocolate Orange Ice Cream from @recipe_thisClick To Tweet
In a medium half a litre ice cream tub place a bottom layer of your orange ice cream and place back in the freezer.
In your ice cream maker mix together the vanilla ice cream with broken bits of Terry’s Chocolate Orange along with the chocolate in grated form. Leave to go for 20 minutes.
Place the chocolate ice cream layer on top of your layer of orange ice cream and place back in the freezer for a further 20 minutes.
Scoop out of the ice cream container as needed.
You could do this for any of your favourite chocolate brands. Dominic just happened to treat me to some Terry’s and I couldn’t resist using it in ice cream.
