Krokan Ice Cream

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by WI Cheesehead

From the Roald Dahl's Revolting Recipes cookbook for kids. Haven't tried it yet. This is a British cookbook, so I'm not sure what the American equivalents would be. I'm also not sure what the cook time is! Doesn't include the re-freezing time for the ice cream.

Top Review by Tom Egil T.

It's not an English dish, it's a Norwegian one. Roald Dahl's father was from Norway and according to his autobiography Boy: Tales of Childhood, he used to eat this whenever he visited his grandparents and absolutely loved it.
