When cool, add the cream and vanilla essence, mix thoroughly and pace in an ice cream machine if available. If not place in a bowl in the freezer and stir every 5 minutes until fully frozen.
Toffee Crunch – Method
Line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Heat the honey and sugar in a small pan over medium heat. Bring to the boil, stirring constantly so the mixture doesn’t burn.
Take off the heat and stir in baking soda. The mixture will froth and become pale.
Pour the mixture onto the baking tray, leave to set (30 minutes)
Wrap in a towel and use a rolling pin or similar to break into small pieces.
Sprinkle over your ice cream for the finishing touch!
