roasted macadamia and fudge ice cream 2


250 ml full cream milk

500 ml cream

100 g sugar

2 tablespoons honey

1 teaspoon vanilla essence

4 egg yolks

Pinch of salt

100 g macadamia nuts

100 g fudge, cut into small cubes


  1. Place the macadamia nuts in an ovenproof dish and roast at 180 degrees for 10 minutes. Keep a watchful eye to ensure that they don’t burn. When done, set aside to cool.
  2. Warm milk, sugar, honey, vanilla essence, half the cream and salt in a saucepan.
  3. Let it cool for 30 minutes to room temperature.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg yolks.
  5. Slowly pour the milk mixture into the eggs while whisking continuously.
  6. Pour back into the saucepan and heat. Stir with a spatula and scrape the bottom of the pan to form a custard. When the spatula is covered when removing it from the mix, the sauce is ready.
  7. Pour the mixture through a strainer and add the rest of the cream.
  8. Chill for 12 hours.
  9. Churn your ice cream according to your machine’s specifications.  Add the nuts and fudge mid-freezing.
