Let's head back to Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone Chapter Two: The Vanishing Glass to see what's next

"The Dursleys bought Dudley and Piers large chocolate ice-creams at the entrance"

If there's one sweet treat that reminds me of school it's the Choc Ice! A classic British dessert consisting of a creamy vanilla ice-cream coated in a crisp chocolate outer-shell. Creating these at home would be pretty magical as it is - but at My Harry Potter Kitchen we like to go further so this week we're creating a Choc Ice large enough to feed a whole class at Hogwarts

This super simple recipe is great to make with kids and whatever you don't finish straightaway can be kept in the freezer for a summer's day

Giant Homemade Choc Ice Ingredients:

(makes 1 giant choc ice or 10-12 small ones)

  • 500ml double cream

  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 16oz (450g) dark chocolate

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil


  1. Pour your double cream into a bowl and whisk until it forms soft peaks. Add in your condensed milk and vanilla extract and continue whisking until the cream forms stiff peaks

  2. Line a 16cm rectangle baking tin with cling film (Wizard Tip! Line it twice, once horizontally and once vertically, to ensure you have a good seal and have some hanging over to cover the top of the ice-cream).

  3. Pour in your whipped cream and use a spatula to even it out. Fold the remaining cling film over the top and then press down with any flat-bottomed utensil to get a nice even finish. Place in the freezer to set for 4-6 hours

  4. Place the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water and add in the coconut oil. Keep on stirring until it is completely melted and smooth. Place into a jug for easy pouring

  5. Remove the ice-cream from the freezer and place onto a wire rack. Pour the melted chocolate over the 'bottom' of the ice-cream. Working quickly before the chocolate freezers, use a palette knife to get a nice even layer - try your best to do this in one wipe. Place the Choc Ice back into the freezer for 5 minutes until the chocolate has set

  6. Remove the Choc Ice from the freezer, flip over and pour another layer of chocolate over the top and sides. As before, try your best to scrape the excess chocolate off the sides and top in one wipe to get a nice clean finish.

  7. Return the Choc Ice to the freezer for 5 minutes to allow the chocolate to set and take out whenever you're ready to serve

This recipe is guaranteed to give you nostalgia if you ever had a Choc Ice growing up as it tastes just like the real thing, and being gigantic like this one, is sure to last a lot longer!
