Feeding a crowd on a budget? The Slow Food chapter from Orange in NSW kindly shared a couple of their ‘never fail’ party recipes that are always a hit with their cooking class members! Perfect for your table this Christmas.
ROCKY ROAD ICE CREAM CAKE
2 litres of vanilla ice cream
300g pkt frozen raspberries
1/2 cup icing sugar mix
150g chocolate biscuits (broken into pieces)
3/4 cup crushed nuts (if allergies mean no nuts can be used, substitute some cooked fruits or fresh banana which tastes quite creamy when frozen fresh)
100 g marshmallows
Partly melt ice cream and combine with other ingredients. Freeze
NO CHURN ICE CREAM
1 can sweet condensed milk
2 x 600mls double cream
1 t vanilla extract
2T alcohol (optional)
