Ice cream rolls machine Pan-n-Ice – loved by Holly Willoughby and Amanda Holden – is the new must-have kitchen gadget.
However, the ladies have found two very different uses for the machine.
We know which we’d rather!
What are ice cream rolls and what does the machine do?
The new food trend is thought to have originated in Thailand. There, street food stalls make it on what looks like a giant crepe maker before your very eyes.
However, instead of the iron base being blisteringly hot, it’s freezing cold – and the batter that’s poured on is melted ice cream.
Toppings – such as strawberries, chocolate bars and Oreo cookies – are then placed on top, before it’s all mixed in with a chopping motion courtesy of two paint scraper-like spatulas.
The ice cream is quickly spread into a thin layer on the cold surface, where it freezes almost instantly.
The scrapers are then used to roll the ice cream up from one side of the cold plate to the other.
It’s fascinating to watch being made and the end result is lighter, airier, tastier ice cream.
But what do you do if you’re not planning a trip to Thailand any time soon?
Well, we have just the thing…
So can I buy an ice cream roll machine to make it myself?
You can indeed.
The UK’s original ice roll company Pan-n-Ice has DIY kits that have been tested out by celebrities including Amanda Holden and Holly Willoughby.
With hers, Holly’s daughter Belle can be seen making ice cream rolls with hundreds and thousands, Treat sauces and Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups.
Amanda, meanwhile, decided to make a boozy frozen cocktail and quipped: “I always wanted to be a plasterer,” of the technique needed.
