It was my mum's birthday yesterday and we celebrated it with dinner at our place once she had finished work.
I decided to make an ice-cream cake using some of her favourite things.
2 litres of Cadbury chocolate ice-cream (you can also use vanilla ice-cream if you prefer)
A block of chocolate to melt over the cake just before serving.
I don't have a recipe as such but you can adjust the ingredients depending on the crowd you are feeding!
I let the ice-cream soften in a large mixing bowl, added in the raspberries and Maltesers and stirred it all together until it was combined. I then spooned the ice-cream mixture into a springform baking tin lined with baking paper and popped it in the freezer.
Usually its best to leave it overnight to freeze but as I had left the cake to the last minute I had it in the freezer for about 5 hours.
When you are ready to serve, remove the cake from the tin and place on a plate or cake stand.
Drizzle melted chocolate over the top and serve immediately.
Use a knife dipped in hot water to slice if needed.

I've made something similar before with the same ingredients. They are the perfect combo!
The recipe is
200g butter, 1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar, 5 eggs, 400g dark chocolate, 3ltrs of icecream, 300g frozen raspberries, 500g maltesers.
Beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Add eggs.
Melt the chocolate and add to the butter mixture.
Spoon icecream into a bowl, stand until softened and mash the rasperries in with a fork.
Line the base of a baking dish or cake tin with baking paper.
Place half the maltesers in a bag and crush them.Spread over base of the dish.
Pour half the chocolate mixture over the maltesers.
Spoon over the icecream.
Top with the remaining chocolate mixture.
Crush in remaing maltesers.
Cover and freeze overnight.
