Orange Brittle For Ice Cream Splendor

Ic cream is ice cream….or is it? You can buy toppings or you can make your own and make it special. Try this and let me know how much you loved it.


  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1  1/2 tbsp. fennel seeds, toasted
  • 1 tsp. finely grated orange zest

Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray with a non-stick cooking spray.

Cook the sugar in a skillet over moderate heat, without distrubing ,until it begins to melt. Stirring occasionally, continue to cook until it becomes a golden caramel.

Immediately remove from the heat,  quickly add the toasted fennel seeds and zest and then pour onto the tin foil spreading with the back of a spoon before it hardens.

Cool for about 5 minutes. Break into pieces (save some shards) and put the rest in the food processor until a coarse grind.

Scoop ice cream into a bowl, place a shard on the side and sprinkle some of the ground brittle over the top. If you wish a much crunchier brittle, just break into small pieces rather than put in the processor.

Enjoy! Summer is on its way.
