I thought it was time to share one of my favourite ever recipes! I have such fond memories of this Grand Marnier Ice Cream with Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce recipe.
It's actually my Grandma's recipe and my Mum used to make it when we were kids, on special occasions, when they'd have friends around for dinner and we had to go to bed early. Sometimes though, there would be leftovers the next day and we could have a mouthful of this absolutely divine ice cream. I don't recreate this often, but when I do, I savour every mouthful. I've never had anything like it!
You'll need to get a good quality vegan vanilla ice cream for this recipe. Please don't buy the ones that taste like cardboard at the supermarkets! I used CocoLuscious ice cream. In my opinion it's the best and tastiest one in Australia (you can also get it in New Zealand and Singapore!)
I just love the orange rind in this recipe - combined with the Grand Marnier liqueur it is a taste sensation. Also the crunch of the toasted slivered almonds... and the bits of toasted coconut... ok, ok, ALL of it is mouthwateringly, delectably, divinely delicious!! And then the Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce takes it to a whole other level! We don't use alcohol in our recipes much, but when we do, we make sure we do it with style!
We even made a video on how to make it on our YouTube Channel. You can check it out here:
Please let us know if you make this recipe. We'd love to hear how it turned out for you! Please share this recipe with ice cream lovers around the world!!
Step 1: What You Will Need
Grand Marnier Ice Cream
1 litre of Vegan Vanilla Ice Cream
1 Tbsp of Grated Orange Rind
1/2 a cup of Shredded Coconut
1/4 a cup of Slivered Almonds
2 Tbsp of Grand Marnier Liqueur
Hot Chocolate Fudge Sauce
1/2 a cup of Dark Vegan Chocolate
1/4 a cup of Coconut Cream
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
A pinch of Salt
2 Tbsp of Raw Sugar
1 Tbsp of Coconut Oil
Let the ice cream melt a little for 5 to 10 minutes. This will make it easier to mix the other ingredients through.
Put the ice cream in a big bowl and add the orange rind, toasted slivered almonds, toasted coconut and Grand Marnier and mix through until well incorporated
Pour this mixture into a container that can be stored in the freezer. Freeze overnight, or for at least 6-8 hours
For the hot chocolate fudge sauce, add all the ingredients to a double boiler or into a bowl over hot water and stir until melted. Pour generously over scoops of the Grand Marnier Ice Cream!
