Ice Cream And Halloween

On my ice cream recipes Facebook page I held a poll to find out the most popular dessert for Halloween. It was an interesting exercise but perhaps with an predictable result ...
1st - Pumpkin pie (55% of votes)
2nd - Ice cream (42% of votes)
3rd - Cupcakes

Let's face it, at the end of October, freshly baked, hot pumpkin pie is diffiult to beat! So I was delighted to think that ice cream came a close second.

Put the two together and you get pumpkin ice cream of course. Here is my pumpkin ice cream recipe - which also has maple syrup and nutmeg as ingredients.

If you don't like pumpkin but want an ice cream suitable for spooky Halloween, here's my gothic ice cream recipe. Made with licorice toffee, it is deligthfully sticky, smooth and gothic grey!

Enjoy some Halloween ice cream and have a great time!
