As my granddaughters will tell you, I love licorice.  They very kindly add extra to any lolly bags they’re making for me and even give me some from their own, such lovely girls………..  So when I saw this Licorice Ice Cream recipe I couldn’t resist sharing it, although I think, like me, you’d need to love licorice.


I almost didn’t post this recipe because Vitari is no longer made by Nestle.  I changed my mind though on googling it and deciding you could use Weis Sorbet instead or at a push a good ice cream.  It looks so tasty in the picture I thought it was worth doing.


Dad was a great ice cream lover, so Mum always had some in the freezer. In the early days it was all homemade, but along with everyone else Mum changed to bought ice cream when it became readily available and her fridge freezer grew larger. While Dad liked his plain, Mum made this Rocky Road version and another one with Cherry Ripe bars in it. I think she mainly made it for the grandkids, but the big kids ate it too.
