Ice cream rolls recipe

For those that will want to try making this sensational dessert at home, here are some tips for you.

The entire process starts with making the ice cream base.  Begin by combining the milk, heavy cream, sugar, and salt straight into a large metal skillet. Use a heat-resistant rubber spatula to stir everything together. Place the skillet on the stove over high heat. Continue to stir while the milk heats and the sugar dissolves, else your sugar might start to burn on the bottom of the pan. Continue stirring until the mixture comes to a boil, then remove from the heat entirely and let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Then to the next stage:  chop, chop, chop the toppings. Once the base is cooled, sprinkle your topping of choice over the ice cream base. You may choose to use toppings such as sprinkles, Oreo cookies, brownies, fresh fruit, Nutella, and so on. Use the paint scrapers to chop up the toppings and mix them into the ice cream. Moving around the ice cream base will create air, which will yield a creamy, well-textured ice cream.

Next, you freeze for four Hours. Once the toppings are incorporated into the ice cream base, place the skillet into the freezer and leave it for four hours. The ice cream needs to be extra frozen in order to scrape it into rolls. So when that third hour hits, please, be patient – or your ice cream will end up a soggy mess.

Also, you’ve got to freeze your bowl and paint scrapers. This step is crucial! Place the bowl you will be using to serve the ice cream and the paint scrapers used to scrape the rolls into the freezer for at least 15 minutes. Once the ice cream is out of the freezer and scraped up, it will need all the cold it can get. If you decide to skip putting the bowl in the freezer, your poor ice cream rolls will melt away faster than you want them to. You’ve got to do it for the rolls!

Finally, make your ice rolls. Once your ice cream is frozen solid along with your bowl and scrapers, it’s time to make the Thai ice cream rolls. Lest I forget, before you take the skillet out of the fridge, you must be warned. Serious faces everyone. This is not a time to dilly-dally – you must act fast from the moment the skillet comes out of the freezer and touches the kitchen counter. Quickly scrape the ice cream into rolls by placing the paint scraper at an angle against the edge of the pan, pushing carefully forward. If the ice cream needs a little help forming, use a butter knife to push the sheet of cream into the roll. You can serve the ice cream rolls gently into your cup and then top it with whatever you please: more sprinkles, whipped cream, fudge, caramel, or fresh fruit.
