New Berry Fruits Ice Cream

Tutti fruity. Does anyone else remember that ice cream flavour? Or am I showing my youth 😉. Well that’s what I was aiming for when I created this New Berry Fruits Ice Cream, except……….. it is so much better than I ever remember. The jelly sweets have a true, intense, fruity flavour, that doesn’t diminish when frozen AND they stay chewy!

Win Win.

New Berry Fruits Ice Cream so intensely fruity and delicious.

Each 100g box of New Berry Fruits contains 8 individual jelly sweets with a liquid centre and a crunchy, sugary coating.

These jelly fruits with the liquid centre are unbelievably good. Intensely fruity, chewy, hidden nectar in the centre. If you love sweets, you really need to try these.

As I am allergic to orange, I left them out of the ice cream. If you love orange they will totally work with all the other New Berry Fruits in the ice cream base that I’ve created.

To make this recipe you will need 2 boxes of New Berry Fruits. We are very honest here at Feasting is Fun, it is acceptable for one or three jellies to ‘go missing’ during the making of this New Berry Fruits Ice Cream. That’s all part of the fun and the ice cream will taste just as good.

You will also need both lemon and rose extract. You only need a little bit of each, however, they are what give this fruity ice cream it’s fantastic background flavour. I have other recipes that use the extracts, so it really is worth buying them. I only use Nielsen-Massey extracts and they are available in most major supermarkets as well as online.

Time to show you how to make this cooling, fruity treat.

Recipe: New Berry Fruits Ice Cream makes 750ml approx.

2 Boxes of New Berry Fruits

300ml/ 1/2pint Double Cream

300ml/ 1/2pint Milk – Whole or Semi Skimmed

1/4tsp Lemon Extract

1/4tsp Rose Extract

1tsp Vanilla Extract

4 Large Free Range Egg Yolks – the whites can be frozen for up to 1 month

1tsp Corn Flour – also known as corn starch

4tbsp Caster Sugar

Method: Ensure the cooling ‘bowl’ of your ice cream maker has been in the freezer for at least 8 hours, ideally overnight, or as per manufacturer’s instructions.

Note: For photographic step by step instructions on how to make the custard base for the ice cream please see Very Vanilla Ice Cream.

  • Pour the milk and cream into a heavy bottomed saucepan over a medium heat.
  • Bring the liquid to scalding point – this is just before it boils, there will be a ring of bubbles that appear around the edge of the liquid. Once the bubbles appear remove from the heat.
  • Whilst the milk/cream is heating, into a large bowl add the egg yolks, corn flour, sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk until pale, thick and creamy.
  • With the mixer on slow, slowly add the scalded cream mixture to the egg mix, constantly mixing.
  • Tip the contents of the bowl back into the saucepan, over a low heat.
  • Stir until the custard ice cream base has thickened and coats the back of a wooden spoon. The base is now cooked.
  • Pour the custard base through a sieve into a clean bowl – I generally quickly wash up the original bowl that I was using.
  • Cover the top of the custard base with cling film, so that it is in direct contact. This stops a skin from forming.

The custard base is cooling ready for it’s extra flavour boost!
  • Allow the custard base to cool slightly and then chill in the fridge.
  • Once chilled add 1/4 teaspoon of both lemon and rose extract. Stir to mix.
  • Set up your ice cream maker and then pour in the custard base and switch the machine on.
  • Whilst the ice cream is churning and freezing, chop each New Berry Fruit into 4 pieces.

  • When the ice cream is thickly frozen, switch off the machine, remove the top and paddle and using a silicone spatula scoop the fruity flavoured ice cream into a freezer proof tub.
  • Add the chopped New Berry Fruits and stir with a spoon to distribute evenly throughout the ice cream.

  • Pop an air tight lid on to the tub and place in the freezer until frozen solid.
  • To serve remove the ice cream from the freezer 10-15 minutes prior to scooping this will allow it to soften a little.

This is a fun ice cream so scoop your New Berry Fruits Ice Cream into cones or waffle cups and enjoy the amazing flavours and chewy jellies.

If you haven’t ever tried making your own ice cream at home, I hope I’ve encouraged you to have a go. It is so much fun coming up with new flavour combinations. I really wouldn’t be without my Andrew James Which Best Buy, ice cream maker. I’ve said before that an appliance has to earn it’s place in my kitchen.

Toffee Cookie Cups

Toffee Cookie Cups easily made from Wright’sBaking new cookie mix. Toffee flavoured cookies, with pieces of real toffee in the dough, shaped into cups for you to add a scoop of your favourite ice cream!

These deliciously chewy Toffee Cookie Cups are so easy to make and bake, all you have to do is choose which flavour ice cream to pair them with!

Toffee Cookie Cups great with Chocolate Honeycomb Ice Cream.

It is a well established fact here on Feasting is Fun that there are two things I am passionate about. Sharing is integral to who I am as a person and I genuinely believe that food really does taste better when shared. Also I love cookies. Not just – oh ok I’ll bake a batch – I really love cookies. I start almost everyday with a cup of tea and a cookie or two, so when Wright’s sent me their new Toffee Cookie Mix, well I was ridiculously excited!

Toffee Cookie Cups – what will you fill yours with 😉

After a little discussion with Deb-the-bread, Wright’s very own jewel in their crown, I decided to have a go at making the new cookie mix into cookie cups.

Let’s just be clear on something, I had never baked these cookies before, I had never attempted to bake cookie cups before, I had never baked a Wright’s cookie mix before – because I couldn’t, this IS their first cookie mix.

Due to the Toffee Cookie Mix only just having been released, stocks were super low and there wasn’t a spare mix for me to practise with! Ok so we all know I love a challenge. So I put my trust in Wright’s reputation for making fabulous mixes and my ability to ‘wing it’! I mean I have baked a fair few thousand cookies in my lifetime.

FF Toffee Cookie Cups
Toffee Cookie Cups – a resounding success.

As you can see from the photos, I not only managed to make Toffee Cookie Cups, using Wright’s new Toffee Cookie Mix, they are also the perfect size for one scoop of ice cream. Easy to pick up with your hands and eat, rather like an ice cream cone, except if the ice cream drips it is caught in the cup shape.

I cannot begin to explain how thrilled I was that I’d made cookie cups. Ridiculously so. More than that though, they taste ooh so good. I filled ours with Chocolate Honeycomb Ice Cream, but you could use coffee, caramel (I have a Caramac Ice Cream recipe coming up), chocolate, banoffee, in fact any flavour that pairs well with toffee would work well in these gorgeous cookie cups.

Enough waffling you want to know how they’re made and I’m desperate to share how I made them with you!

Recipe: Makes 10 Toffee Cookie Cups

1 Packet of Wright’s Baking new Toffee Cookie Mix

Vegetable Oil or Butter – I used butter & would recommend it for making the cookies into cups, simply because it firms up on coolinf, helping to give the cups rigidity,

Cake release spray, oil or butter for greasing the bun tin.

Method: Preheat the oven to the temperature recommended on the packet.

To make these Toffee Cookie Cups you will need a regular 12 hole fairy cake – NOT MUFFIN – tin.

I find it is always better to have everything I need to hand before I start baking.
  • Make up the Toffee Cookie Mix according to the packet instructions – I actually melted the butter.
  • Stir to combine the cookie mixture.
FF Toffee Cookie Cups
The Toffee Cookie dough.
  • Grease all of your fairy cake tin, not just the holes – I used cake release spray as I wanted to be sure these wouldn’t stick, I would advise brushing the whole tin lightly with vegetable oil.
  • Divide the cookie dough into 10 equal-ish sized balls.

The dough ball size and pressed out cookie cups.
  • Place a cookie dough ball into one of the fairy tin holes. Gently with your fingers press it into the hole and sides so that it is equal thickness all the way around. Ensure that you press the dough into the bottom of the tin so that it has a definite base.
  • Continue for the remaining cookie dough balls.
  • When all the cookie cups have been moulded place the tin in the middle of the oven and bake for 12-14 minutes. Mine took 14 minutes.
  • The Cookie Cups will puff up whist cooking DON’T PANIC!!
  • When golden brown and baked remove the tin from the oven.

Beautifully golden with a wonderful toffee smell, Toffee Cookie Cups.
  • Place the tin on a cooling rack and allow the cookie cups to cool in the tin as the cookies/cookie cups harden on cooling.
  • As the cookie cups cool slightly, very gently press the slightly puffed up base down.
  • Once the cookie cups are cooled remove them from the pan – mine came away easily, if yours are proving stubborn use a small palette knife to run between the top of the cookie cup and where it lays flat on the tin, this should loosen them.

Congratulations you have made 10 fantastic Toffee Cookie Cups!

To serve, add a scoop of your favourite ice cream, share and enjoy.
