I was browsing through the Halloween recipes on JamieOliver.com when I found a recipe for Smush ‘Ems. Now I hadn’t heard of Smush-ins before, so for the uninitiated like me, think of a McFlurry, simply ice cream, all smushed up with sweeties. I’ve given this a Halloween twist…

Ingredients

  • Tub of Ben & Jerry’s Peanut Butter Me Up Ice-Cream – I chose this variety as it has choccy peanut butter within ( which I LOVE) and most importantly a core of raspberry jam, bringing a faux-blood element that is perfect for Halloween
  • Assorted Halloween sweets – I chose Chewits Vampire Fangs, Haribo Spooky Mix and M&S  eyeball and pumpkin chocolate balls, along with M&S gingerbread witches fingers.

Method

Beyond easy, let the ice cream soften at room temp for 15 minutes then let the children add the sweets they fancy and smush away! We used a potato masher in a mixing bowl for our smushing – it was surprisingly therapeutic 😉

Joining in this week with the lovely Capture by Lucy’s #SundayPropShop, getting inspiration for styling photos. It’s been really interesting to think about what ‘other bits’ I have in the shots and I’ve learnt already, looking at these shots that I really should have moved the bowl and ice cream a bit further away from the board at the back to give the shot some depth. I’m looking forward to trying again next week and implementing that.
