Apologies for being very slack with updating the blog in the past month, I returned home to New Zealand, the land of the long white cloud, for a couple of weeks. Then when I got back I have been flat chat shooting weddings, so simply haven’t had the time. I went to New Zealand to go to my nephews 1st Birthday who I had never met, so thought it was time I went over. He is so adorable, one very cute baby.
I had such a wonderful time in New Zealand, I always feel like I’m returning home when I go there, the country side is so lush and green. I get to catch up with all my friends and family, and eat some amazing food.
Whenever I return to New Zealand I live on ice cream for the entire time, so much so that my Uncle stocks up when he knows I will be in town. He went out and brought 3 tubs and I showed up with 1 so we had 4, 2 litter tubs to get through. Yep thats right 8 litters of ice cream. Good thing ice cream is my favourite food.
So I thought it fitting that for the first recipe I posted on my return would be a kiwi classic, Hokey Pokey Ice Cream!!! For those of you that think hokey pokey is a dance (my boyfriend included) where have you been living? Obviously not in New Zealand! It is the greatest ice cream in the world!! Hokey Pokey is what most people would know as honey comb, and when you put it in to ice cream its like a marriage made in heaven.
To make these little chunks of gold only requires 3 ingredients, its one of the easiest recipes. You could coat the Hokey Pokey in chocolate and make your own home make crunchies or violent crumbles, but I think its best in ice cream.
