  • 100 g salted popcorn
  • 100 g flaked almonds, toasted
  • 200 g sugar
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 155 g butter
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • Salt, a pinch
  • 300 g 60% dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 2 litres Woolworths peanut-butter ice cream, slightly thawed

Cooking Instructions

Mix the popcorn with the toasted almonds and set aside. Heat the sugar, honey, butter and milk in a saucepan over a low heat. Stir until the sugar is dissolved, then bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes, or until the mixture is a deep golden brown colour and has thickened.

Tip in the popcorn-and-nut mixture and stir until coated. Pour two-thirds of this mixture into a round 20 cm loose-bottomed baking tin, pressing in evenly.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a double-boiler and stir in the remaining butter. Pour two-thirds over the popcorn base and spread evenly. Allow to cool and firm slightly.

Spoon in the peanut-butter ice cream, levelling with a spoon dipped in hot water. Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably, overnight until solid.

To serve, transfer to a cake stand, drizzle with the remaining melted chocolate and top with the remaining caramel popcorn-nut mixture.
