Banana Ice cream with Peanuts Brittle


  • 1 Banana
  • 2 cups of vanilla ice cream
  • 1/4 cup of salted peanuts
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  1. Sit the ice cream out at room temperature for a few minutes to soften it.
  2. Add the sugar to a saucepan and put over medium low heat.
  3. While the saucepan is heating up, peel and mash the banana into a paste with a potato masher or similar utensil, make sure there are no lumps!
  4. Combine the banana paste well with the ice cream in a mixing bowl and put it back into the freezer.
  5. Line a flat tray with baking paper or greased with butter.
  6. Keep mixing the sugar in the saucepan with a wooden spoon, keep a close eye on it as it burns easily if you don’t keep stirring it!
  7. Once the sugar has completely dissolved into a thick brown toffee mix, let it come to a simmer for one minute.
  8. Add the peanuts to the sugar brittle and pour on to the baking paper in a thin and even streams. Not too thick otherwise you will break your teeth trying to eat it.
