Cook’s notes

  • For a change, use salted roasted peanuts and leave out the salt.
  • Serve in “shards” with the peanut butter gelato. The combination of the chilli and ice cream goes incredibly well.
  • Crush broken pieces of the brittle on turbo and sprinkle over the ice-cream or make a “sand” with the brittle and sprinkle on the serving plate placing a quenelle of ice-cream on top.
  • Mix crushed brittle in swirls in softened ice-cream and freeze further.
