Cherry, Rose & Dark Chocolate Tipped Magnums

Who does not love a magnum on a glorious hot day??!!  This is my cherry ice-cream with rose and dark chocolate recipe only in the shape of a magnum ice-cream. 

A fantastic way to spend time in the kitchen with children during the summer holidays. Teaching children to cook in this day and age is more than simply entertainment in the holidays but rather an essential skill handed down from parent to child.  Children need to grow into adults that are competent and comfortable in the kitchen, by not teaching these skills we are encouraging them to choose a takeout or pre-cooked meal option when they leave home.  Many hormone and adrenal issues start in the early years of adulthood, especially when they are under loads of stress during exams and early work years.  By teaching them to cook they will be able to ensure that they can maintain a health diet during these really important years.

Honestly, these look fancier than they are to make, simply blended fruit frozen in a magnum mould.  I have done the leg work for you so no need to scrounge around looking for the moulds, they can be purchased through my recipe link below and they are really easy to use.  Freeze for a few hours, and the best part is they slip right out of the moulds without having to use any hot water, then dunk the lollies into melted dark chocolate, SO SO easy!

  1. Trying these tonight. When I try your treats, I’m starting to feel guilty until I read the ingredients again and realise there’s nothing to feel guilty about 🙂

  2. These look gorgeous, and so pretty! I can’t think why anyone would want to eat one of those shop bought things when they can have one of these – and the rose is a really special touch. Beautiful, love it.

  3. These look incredible and I love how they are so healthy too! I am going to make these with my son as I totally agree we need to teach kids to cook. Also great way to get him to have more coconut! Well done! X
