Christmas Ice-Cream Pudding with Choc Honeycomb, Clinkers, Maltesers & More!

Each year I like to make one dessert for Christmas that is a bit of a ‘showstopper’ or a fancy looking table ‘centrepiece’. But while I want my desserts to look amazing, I certainly don’t want to be spending hours upon hours slaving over the teensy details. I just want to whip up something that looks super impressive, but without any fuss or hassle.

So last year I made my Clinkers Rocky Road Wreath which was a total hit. If you haven’t made it before, pretty please do! It’s freaking awesome!! You can pop it onto your Christmas table or take it to a party as a gift. This was mega popular on the blog last year, so definitely check it out!

Anyway, back to the Christmas ice-cream pudding. I have a bit of a thing with ice-cream puddings and cakes at Christmas time. They’re always a hit with kids and adults alike, plus they’re ridiculously easy to make AND they taste great. Which leads me into this years crazy creation.

So to make my triple layer Christmas ice-cream pudding, you’ll need a 2-litre container of neapolitan ice-cream (if you want to make a bigger cake, increase to 3 or 4 litres). You’ll also need a 8 cup capacity bowl (I just used one of my mixing bowls). Line the bowl with two pieces of overhanging cling wrap so that the ice-cream cake is easy to remove.

Take the ice-cream out of the freezer and leave it for about 5 minutes. Squeeze the sides of the container to loosen and then overturn onto a chopping board. Cut the ice-cream into 3 seperate slices – chocolate, vanilla and strawberry and place each section into a seperate container and pop back into the freezer. Don’t stress if you have a tiny bit of strawberry ice-cream in the chocolate section etc – it won’t matter in the end!

Take the vanilla ice-cream out of the freezer and allow it to soften (but not melt). Add the chopped chocolate honeycomb and the white chocolate chips and stir to combine. Pour into the bottom of the cling wrap lined bowl and place into the freezer for 30 minutes or until set. Then take the strawberry ice-cream out of the freezer and allow to soften. Mix in the chopped Clinkers and sprinkles and carefully spread over the vanilla layer. Pop back into the freezer for 30 minutes to set. Finally, grab the chocolate ice-cream out of the freezer, mix in the chopped chocolate ripple biscuits and the Maltesers and spread over the strawberry layer. Place it back into the freezer and cover the top with cling wrap. Leave overnight.

When you’re ready to serve the Christmas ice-cream pudding, take it out of the freezer, remove the cling wrap and turn onto a plate (you might need to wipe off any little ice-cream smears!). Squeeze the Ice Magic all over the top, allowing it to drip down the sides (you won’t need the entire bottle). Decorate with extra chopped honeycomb and Clinkers. Pop back into the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up. Serve immediately.

This is one Christmas dessert that is absolutely going to blow your socks off. Everyone will love it! Plus if you have any leftovers (as if!), you can simply pop it into an airtight container in the freezer… and then sneak a few mouthfuls later.

Happy Christmas!! xx

    Thank you for your wonderful recipes and great blog xx

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      I am SO SO happy to hear that!!!! xx

  22. Aysha says:

    Hi, this looks incredible, and just what I’d like to do, but ice cream always says ‘once defrosted, do not refreeze’.
    I’m worried I’ll let it soften too far, so how do i know when it’ll still be edible please?!
    Stupid question I know :(! xxx

    1. Bake Play Smile says:

      Hi Aysha, you need to allow it to soften enough to mix through the ingredients but you certainly don’t want it to melt (otherwise it will go ‘icy’ and ‘sticky’ when it’s refrozen). xx

  23. Jasmine says:

    My mum and I made a similar cake one year, save with Connoisseur icecream and it took until Feb to finish! We even used it as my birthday cake (Jan 23)!!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Oh that’s so awesome!!!!
