This isn’t a dish for my family as they don’t like recipes that have a meat and fruit combination, which is a shame as I think it would be worth trying. The chilli kick in the base and the coconut in the topping certainly add a lot of interest.
Some years ago we were spending Christmas at a holiday house on the NSW south coast and our son decided to bring his girlfriend. That was no problem until it came to cooking Christmas lunch – she was a vegetarian………. Vegetarian Christmas recipes were few and far between in those days and I ended up serving her a stuffed eggplant. I just wish I’d found this recipe as it’s much more colorful and I suspect she would have enjoyed it more. Especially as the power went out due to a bushfire in the area and we ended up cooking the entire meal on the bbq – it was a very Australian Christmas.
Mum and Dad both loved ice cream, so Mum made a lots of varieties. She added cherry ripe bars and nuts, chocolate mint bars and a lot flavours to plain ice cream, but I don’t think she ever made this super chocolate one. Chocolate ice cream, mars bars, milk choc bits, white choc bits and dark chocolate – a chocolate lover’s dream I think.
