  1. Line a 1kg loaf tin with a double layer of clingfilm, leaving plenty of overhang over the edges. Use 7 of the Jaffa cakes to line the base of the tin, placing chocolate side-down and halving where necessary to fit tightly to the edges of the tin.
  2. Remove the ice cream from the freezer, tip into a large bowl and leave for 15 mins to soften a little. Add the orange zest and the chocolate chips, then mix well until fully combined.
  3. Working quickly, spoon one-third of the ice cream over the Jaffas and level the surface. Top with a layer of 8 Jaffa Cakes (chocolate side–down). Repeat with 2 more layers of ice cream and Jaffa Cakes.
  4. Cover with the clingfilm overhang and freeze for at least 5 hrs or overnight.
  5. To serve, remove from the freezer. Turn out immediately onto a serving platter. Heat the chocolate sauce according to the instructions. Serve the warm chocolate sauce drizzled over.
