I’m always on the lookout for new cereals for my family, and recently while I was in Walmart getting some Honey Bunches of Oats (with strawberries, of course!) I happened to see a box of Honey Comb cereal. We’ve never tried it before – and it looked fun AND delicious!
I also noticed that from information on both boxes, we could enter the SING National Sweepstakes! All we’d need to do was enter the codes that are printed inside the specially-marked boxes into the sweepstakes website, and we could be in with a chance of winning $100,000 or free movie tickets!
But the unique shape of the Honey Comb cereal got me thinking, and I really wanted to make something different with it. Now, despite being November, ice cream popped into my head – probably because my son has ice cream when he comes home from school each day – in any weather. Anyway, the whole family are big year-round ice cream eaters, so I knew that if I made some honey ice cream they would love it!
To make the base for the ice cream, I added heavy cream, milk and honey to a saucepan (full recipe details can be found if you scroll down to the recipe card). I brought it to a boil, stirring frequently, then removed it from the heat.
After letting it cool slightly, I poured it into a bowl. Then I covered it and let it get to room temperature. After that, I transferred it to the fridge to cool even further.
While I was waiting, I placed some of the Honey Comb cereal into a bag and crushed it into small pieces. It seemed rather a shame to break up the shapes but I wanted the flavor and texture at this point.
When the ice cream mixture was really cold, I poured it into an ice cream maker and let it churn.
When it had started to thicken, I poured it into a dish and added the cereal pieces.
Then I placed the dish in the freezer and let it freeze fully.
To serve, I sprinkled some of the cereal over the top. The crushed cereal added a delicious soft and slightly chewy texture to the ice cream, and this was a nice contrast to the crunchy cereal on top!
Don’t forget to look out for those specially-marked boxes and you can enter the SING National Sweepstakes too!
