Chocolate Chai Ice-Cream Sandwich
This recipe is like a premium-class version of a maxibon. My favorite ice-cream is definitely the maxibon, the soft biscuit sandwiched with ice-cream side is just amazing!
To give it a prestige makeover I decided on the beautiful flavour mix of chai, ginger and chocolate.
If you make this cake I can guarantee that you will opt for this treat every time over a maxibon!
