Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker

The Cuisinart Ice Cream Challenge has been set: Create a Summer Ice Cream classic with a twist - start with a traditional flavour (Vanilla, Strawberry, Chocolate) and give it your own unique makeover.

I was lucky enough to be selected to take part in this challenge, along with 3 other bloggers - Christina, May and Sabrina  and last week we were all in receipt of brand spanking new Cuisinart Ice Cream Deluxe Machines to create our masterpieces.

For my first recipe I opted for a traditional vanilla base and added crushed salted peanuts, chopped up crunchie bars and dark chocolate chips, my take on Nigella's Salty and Sweet Bars in Nigella Kitchen!
