Ben & Jerry's Hot Fudge Sauce: It is thick and grainy until you add cream and milk, and whisk over heat for 20 minutes.
...and we dug in!
My bowl - all flavours combined into mush.
Nigella's "pure, unapologetic perfection": Apple ice-cream, butterscotch sauce and toasted, flaked almonds.
The most popular flavours were chocolate-chip cookie dough, apple and vanilla. The other fruited flavours didn't move very much at all. The Ben & Jerry's flavours (mocha, butter-pecan, chocolate-chip cookie dough), were impressively easy to scoop, and didn't require as much softening time as the others. I tried to give everyone small scoops in small bowls so that we could try as much as possible, but by the end of the evening, we were all quite full and on a massive sugar high.
Catherine: I'm so full - just on ice-cream! I didn't realise that was possible!
What a wonderfully indulgent day!
