  1. Take the ice cream out of the freezer for 5-10 mins to soften slightly.
  2. Line a 900g/2lb loaf tin with a double layer of clingfilm, leaving some overhanging.
  3. Spoon a third of the coffee ice cream into the base of the tin. Smooth with the back of a spoon. Top with a third of the chocolate ice cream. Repeat until all ice cream is used. If you need to firm up the ice cream, put the tin in the freezer for 5 mins between layers.
  4. Fold the excess clingfilm over the top of the tin. Freeze for 5-6 hours, or ideally overnight, until firm.
  5. When you’re ready to serve, use a vegetable peeler to shave 20g dark chocolate and 20g of white chocolate into curls. Melt the remaining dark and white chocolate in 2 separate bowls until pourable.
  6. Using the clingfilm, lift the cake out of the tin and turn it onto a serving plate. Remove the clingfilm and drizzle the melted chocolates down the length of the ice cream cake with a spoon. Top with the chocolate curls and hazelnuts. Cut into slices using a serrated knife to serve
  7. Pair with a 35ml* serve of The Singleton 12-Year-Old Whisky and enjoy!
