Ingredients

  • 1 L quality vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup green glace cherries, halved
  • 1/2 cup red glace cherries, halved
  • 150 g nougat, coarsely chopped
  • 1 tbsp almond liqueur, optional

Method

  1. Take the ice cream from the freezer and allow to stand on the bench for 10 minutes to soften a little.
  2. Transfer three quarters of the ice cream into a bowl.
  3. Into the ice cream, left in the ice cream container, scatter over a third of the glace cherries and nougat and drizzle one third of the liqueur over.
  4. Repeat the layers pressing down firmly to get everything into the container and finish with a layer of ice cream. (The ice cream will lose volume as you replace it into the container).
  5. Return to the freezer overnight before serving.
