If you live in Sydney, Australia. You'll know what i'm talking about when I say:
It was soooooo hot over the weekend, I thought I might melt, so I made my self a naughty but oh so nice treat. It was too hot to bake, but I really wanted to have a treat. So inspired by the idea I might melt, I decided on something cold that would melt in my mouth, while I was melting inside the house. As the old saying goes, when it’s so hot you want to scream you may as well scream for ice-cream (that IS how it goes, isn’t it?) So I combined a few of my favourite things with everyone’s favourite frozen treat, and it was uber delicious and oh so flavoursome.
The quantities below are according to my taste buds. Feel free to experiment with quantities and you can use different flavoured halva, just have fun with it.
1 litre vanilla Ice-cream
200g chocolate and vanilla halva
1/3 cup crushed /broken (with the back of a knife) roasted hazelnuts
3-4 teaspoon orange blossom water (or according to taste)
Decorate with Rose petals
Let ice-cream soften (not melt). Using your fingers, crumble the halva into the ice-cream. Using a spoon mix thoroughly. Mix in the nuts and orange blossom water.
Stir until all ingredients are well combined. Return to the freezer until very firm. Serve in a serving bowl sprinkle with nuts, halva and rose petals.
