We were asked if we would like to join in with the Kelly’s of Cornwall Scooping Challenge and make our perfect sundae and as we were provided some Kelly’s of Cornwall ice cream vouchers, an ice cream scoop, a bottle of Clarks Sweet Strawberry Dessert Topping with 45% less sugar and a bottle of Clarks Totally Choccy Dessert Topping with 40% less sugar.
We were also given some tips that I am also sharing with you.
Best ways to achieving the perfect scoop.
Firstly take the ice cream out of the freezer and allow it to thaw for a minute.
Run your scoop under water. Shake to remove any excess water. Repeating between scoops and the scoop will glide through the ice cream.
Kelly’s of Cornwall recommend using a solid metal scoop (as pictured) – this helps retain the heat o the water and ensures for a strong scooping action.
Place the tub of ice cream on a flat surface with the narrow end facing you. Insert the scoop at the far end of the tub and slowly pull the scoop towards you, holding the end of the tub with your other hand to ensure it doesn’t slip. Using a smooth, yet strong motion, the ice cream will naturally curl into a perfect scoop.
Our first decision was which Kelly’s of Cornwall ice cream we would choose. After a long stand in the supermarkets freezer aisle we decided to go for Clotted Cream Vanilla, Honeycomb Crunch, Berry Eton Mess and Choc Brownie Salted Caramel ice creams. We also bought some local strawberries and sprinkles to go with our sundaes.
Now when you ask a child which ice cream they want their sundae made with, when they have seen ALL of the ice creams you know exactly what the answer will be…ALL OF THEM! Would this work though? I wasn’t sure but I would give it a go anyway.
I got the sundae glasses out ready and squirted a small amount of Clarks Sweet Strawberry into the bottom of 2 sundae glasses, just enough to cover the bottom. I then chopped a couple strawberries and added those.
Once scoop of vanilla ice cream was added and then a drizzle of Clarks Totally Choccy on top of the ice cream.
More chopped strawberries were added and another drizzle of Totally Choccy on top of those.
A scoop and half a scoop of Choc Brownie Salted Caramel was added with more chopped strawberries on top of them and I drizzled Sweet Strawberry over the top.
2 scoops of Berry Eton Mess were added to the top of the sundae. I drizzled some Sweet Strawberry on top. Added one strawberry on the top and shook some sprinkles to the top.
My girls did not realise I was making them a sundae each and were taken aback when I came in with them.
Unfortunately I didn’t get any photos of them devouring them as once I had cleaned up and reached for my camera they had eaten all of their sundaes.
They said it was their perfect sundae as it had a mix of flavours in it and it worked really well together. The sauce and the fruit gave it that little extra something. Next time I will put some squirty cream on the top too I think and maybe more fruits, some bananas, raspberries and blackberries as it is the time of year for them.
Sundaes are so easy to make and children love them, plus if your child doesn’t normally eat fruit, this is a way of getting some down them even if you have to blend it into a sauce.
We love Kelly’s of Cornwall Ice Cream and it was a fun challenge.
