When it comes to Halloween, I love to make the extravagant things don’t get me wrong but I know in reality, most of you just want a quick and easy bake which won’t take up too much of your time… am I right?
Well that’s where today’s bake comes in!
Last year at Christmas, my mum brought me these Halloween moulds and I’ve been racking my brain for months trying to think what to do with them. I wanted something easy that’ll come out the mould perfectly but also wanted it to be ultra tasty. That’s when my mum brought up about doing jelly as let’s be honest, who doesn’t love jelly? especially if it’s paired with icecream!
So I thought today I’d do a pudding that sends everyone back to their childhoods. An arrangement of jellies and a yummy vanilla icecream. Who could say no?
So if you’d like to make this for yourself, the recipe is below:
Jellies You Need:
- Lime Hartley’s Jelly – https://www.sainsburys.co.uk/gol-ui/product/jelly/hartleys-lime-jelly-135g
For the jelly moulds, these are the ones I brought from Amazon – https://www.amazon.co.uk/Silicone-Chocolate-Halloween-Fondant-Decoration/
How To Make Jellies:
- Firstly, break the jelly up into cubes and place into a heat-proof jug.
- Add 5-6tbsp of water into the jug and place in the microwave for around 40 seconds, making sure to keep checking the jelly as you don’t want it to burn.
- Once the jelly is melted, pour cold water into the jug until it reaches the one pint mark.
- Finally, now that you’ve done all the above, pour the jelly into your halloween moulds and place into the fridge to set. (TIP: you’ll have left over jelly so I just poured that into a bowl and added that to the fridge too).
Ingredients You Need To Make Icecream:
- 500ml Of Full Fat Milk
- 125ml Of Single Cream
- 4tbsp Of Vanilla Essence
- 150g Of Caster Sugar
- 4 Egg Yolks
How To Make Icecream:
- Firstly, combine the 125ml of single cream, 500ml of full fat milk and 4tbsp of vanilla essence in a pan and bring it almost to the boil. Set aside to cool.
- In a bowl, beat together the 4 egg yolks and sugar.
- Stirring continuously, pour the milk mixture on the beaten egg yolks/sugar, ensuring that the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Return the mix to the pan and over a very low heat, continue to stir until the mixture coats the back of the spoon.
- Allow the mixture to cool throughly.
- When it’s cooled, pour the icecream mix into your Icecream maker, turn on and allow to mix until firm (usually takes around 30 minutes).
- Once the icecream has churned, place into a freezer bowl and place in freezer until you want to serve. (If you don’t have an icecream machine, just place the icecream into the freezer to freeze).
That’s your Lime Jelly & Vanilla Icecream prepared, made and ready for you to serve. I added some chocolate chips to give the Icecream some eyes… just adding to the Halloween effect!
What a banger of a pud tho? Who doesn’t enjoy a good childhood throwback of jelly & Icecream? I felt like this was the perfect bake to end on.
That my lovelies is the end of my halloween content for 2020! How quickly has that come round… don’t worry though, Christmas content is fast approaching.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed my halloween / autumn content this year. I’ve put a lot of time and effort into them and I’m really happy with the outcome so I hope you are too.
Sending tons of love and hugs to you all as always,
