  • 1 large rounded tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tablespoons hot water

Directions for baking the biscuits:

  • Preheat oven to 160°C.
  • Grease and line two baking trays.
  • Mix together the oats, flour and sugar in a bowl.

Assembling the ice cream sandwich:

  • Prepare some food wrap on  a clean work surface and place on of the biscuits top down on the food wrap. Push the ice cream out of the cookie cutter and onto the biscuit.
  • Place another biscuit on top and press down just slightly.

  • Repeat for the rest of the biscuits
  • Remove from the freezer and drizzle with golden syrup and enjoy!
