Simple Mint Gateaux Recipe

This is a recipe for a very simple and straightforward mint gateaux. Using many pre made ingredients I am sure it won't please the traditionalists but it is a simple, fun and tasty recipe.

Simple Mint Chocolate Gateaux

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 15 g (1/2oz) margarine
  • 50 g (2 oz) chocolate digestives, crushed
  • l litre (1 3/4pints) vanilla ice-cream
  • 50 g (2 oz) chocolate mints e.g. Elizabeth Shaw,chopped


Lightly grease a 900 g (2 1b) loaf tin with the margarine. Sprinkle the base and sides with the biscuit crumbs, coating as evenly as possible. Empty ice-cream into a bowl and whisk it to soften slightly. Stir in the chopped chocolate and spoon into loaf tin. Cover with foil or cling film and freeze

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
