Recipe by Chef Soomro Course: Ice cream


Prep time

20 mins


  • Lemon: 1 lemon, juiced
  • Caster Sugar: 100g golden caster sugar
  • Vanilla Extract: 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • Whipping Cream: 200ml whipping cream
  • Strawberry: 400g strawberries, hulled
  • Ice: 2 bags of ice
  • Sweets: assorted sprinkles, sweets and berries
  • Chocolate: 150g white, milk or dark chocolate
  • Sprinkles: 1 tub sprinkles
  • Ice Cream: 3 tubs of ice cream
  • Mars Bars: 2 large Mars bars or other chocolate caramel bars, chopped
  • Ice Cream Cones: 8 ice cream cones


  1. To make the cones, slowly melt the chocolate in a microwave or a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Pour the sprinkles into a bowl. Dip the rim of a cone into the chocolate, shake off any excess, then dip it into the sprinkles. Leave upright to dry and repeat with the rest.
  2. Make the chocolate sauce by heating and stirring the chocolate bars and cream together in a pan over a low heat. Keep warm and transfer to a squeezy bottle when needed.
  3. To make the strawberry sauce, tip the berries into a pan with the sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and a splash of water. Heat gently until the strawberries start to release their juices. Mash or blend the contents of the pan, then push through a fine sieve to remove any pips. Leave to cool and transfer to a squeezy bottle or jug.
  4. Arrange the ice cream tubs (lids off ) in a large bowl or bucket filled with ice. Arrange the cones, squeezy bottles and assorted sprinkles, sweets and berries in bowls alongside, so that the kids can help themselves, adding the toppings of their choice.
