There’s already something special about an ice cream sandwich, but we’ve dialed up the festivity by incorporating fruit, nuts and rum!  

Tip: The festive ice cream can be easily made ahead of time, ready to put together when you need them. For an alternative to sandwiches, freeze the ice cream in a lined loaf tin, turn out and serve garnished with nuts and fruit for a decadent dessert. 

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Set time: 7 hours 

Ingredients 

  • ¾ cup Pams Fruit Cake Mix 
  • ½ cup rum or any other liqueur 
  • 1.5 litres Pams French Vanilla Frozen Dairy Dessert 
  • 1 70g packet Pams Sliced Almonds, lightly toasted 
  • ¼ cup Pams Pistachio Nuts, roughly chopped
  • 12 large shortbread or ginger biscuits (approximately 8cm in diameter) 

Directions 

  1. Combine the fruit cake mix and rum in a small bowl and set aside for several hours.
  2. Once the fruit is infused, soften the ice cream and stir in the fruit mix and nuts. 
  3. Return the ice cream to a sealable plastic container, cover and freeze for 4 hours or until firm. 
  4. Spread half of the biscuits with a generous layer of ice cream. Sandwich with remaining biscuits and return to the freezer until ready to serve.
