“Do you want to create your dream Magnum?”
Hell yes I do.
As if a Magnum couldn’t be dreamy enough already, huh…
Have you ever thought about adding your own toppings and twist to your favourite Magnum? Ever since I wondered by the Pleasure Store in Covent Garden last year, I have always been in awe of how beautiful this humble ice cream can be made when adorned in toppings. I made a mental note to go there and create my own, but time ran out.
But what if you could create your own dream Magnum at home!? All you’ll need is your favourite Magnums and a selection of toppings. Let your imagination run wild: one of the best things about food is that you can mix it up and create your own flavour sensations, so go crazy! However, if you’re stuck for inspiration, I have created two dreamy Magnums inspired by my own favourite flavours. Which one will you choose?
Inspired by the classic summer-time dessert, this has a little bit of of a twist that still sits firmly in it’s roots. Simply add a spoonful of Greek yoghurt on top of a white Magnum, then top with berries and crushed meringue. I’ve used blueberries and dried goji berries.
I’ve used a milk chocolate and almond Magnum as the starting point for this creation. Nuts are kind of healthy… right? For this, melt a little chocolate in the microwave, then stir in crushed pistachios or almonds. Pop a spoonful on top of the Magnum then top with more crushed nuts and a little desiccated coconut for a bit of extra flavour.
I’d love to see your own #DreamMagnum creations! With Christmas approaching, this would be a great excuse to get creative with festive flavours. Share your creations on social media with #DreamMagnum.
