Giant ICE CREAM Snickers Bar How To Cook That Ann Reardon

Welcome to How To Cook That I’m Ann
Reardon and this week we’re gonna make a giant ice cream Snickers bar! So let’s
start by studying a little one. Obviously it has chocolate on the outside we can
see that and if you cut into it we can see there we’ve got ice cream down the
bottom and peanuts and caramel up the top. Just let me dissect this into all
the pieces so we can taste each component on its own. The ice cream is
slightly off-white and it does taste like vanilla ice cream but it has a very
slight nutty taste to it. I’m not sure if that’s actually from the ice cream or if
it’s just from the fact that it’s been sitting next to the peanuts in the bar
but I think we can get away with just using vanilla ice cream because my ice
cream bowl will only make one litre at a time and we’re gonna need way more than
that for this. The chocolate itself is a milk chocolate … it’s probably also had a
lot of extra fat added to it just to make it easier to get that thin coat
when you’re pouring it over ice cream. But with our big one we can get away with
a slightly thicker coat so we’re just gonna use straight normal delicious milk
chocolate. Now the bit I am really interested in is the caramel … once it is
frozen it is quite thick but now you can see when it’s defrosted it’s of course
softer. It’s definitely salted in flavour so we’re gonna have to add some salt in
there too. Now I don’t have a container that’s the right size so I’m going to
use a cardboard box. For this length it will be the right height but this is a
little bit wider than it should be if we were making it in proportion but I don’t
think anyone’s gonna care if they get a little bit of extra ice cream Snickers 😁
So I’m just gonna line that with some non-stick baking paper and we’re ready
to start. Tip your ice cream out of the container and cut big chunks out of it
and add that into your box. Make sure you fill up little gaps and then smooth off
the top and then of course that’s got to go back in the freezer or it will melt. For the
yummy caramel part we’re gonna need peanuts obviously glucose syrup sugar
milk and cream and I’ll put all these recipe quantities on the website for you in grams and
ounces and cups and there’s a link to that below. Add the cream milk and the
glucose syrup into the pan with the sugar. Once you’ve got all of that in you
wanna heat it over high heat. Now I like to stir it at first just to make sure
all the sugar is dissolved and then you want to wash down the sides of the pan
using a wet pastry brush … this just gets off any little sugar crystals that might
have splashed up onto the sides and if you don’t get them off it can make it
crystallize out at the end so instead of having a nice smooth caramel you end up
with like a fudge which is definitely not what we want. Add a candy thermometer
and make sure it’s not touching the bottom of the pan and let that boil
unstirred until it reaches about a hundred and ten degrees (celcius). You can take it
off the heat at 105 if you want a softer caramel but I want mine a little bit
chewy. remove it from the heat and add in those
peanuts and stir those through. That caramel color looks a little bit pale
compared to what was in the actual Snickers so I’m gonna add a little bit
of brown food coloring to make it look a bit deeper. Then stick the whole pan in a
sink of cold water to cool it down quickly. It looks like a big pot of baked
beans at the moment! If you want to test the consistency of your caramel you can
put some of it into a bowl and then freeze it to see how thick it will be …
if it’s too thick you can just stir in some extra cream at this stage. Mine is
quite firm when it’s frozen but I quite like that texture so I’m gonna leave it
just like that. If you want it like it is in the bars add a little bit more cream
to that or only heat it to 105. Once it’s cooled to room temperature you can spoon
that over the ice cream … yum 💕 Look at all that caramel and peanuts mmm. Have I ever
told you about the time when I was a teenager and I went out for a run and
when I came home I remember saying to my mum it feels like I’ve been stung by a
bee in the back of my throat. Now obviously I hadn’t because I would have
known if I’d swallowed a bee but that’s what it felt like and mum said oh go
have a lie down and so I did and a little while
later I came out and I just had blotches all over me like red blotches! My whole
head was swelling my tongue was so swollen that I couldn’t talk properly
and I was finding it hard to breathe and they rushed me down to hospital and
obviously I was having an anaphylactic reaction to something but they didn’t
know what it was and the same thing happened several times over the next few
years and to cut a long story short after seeing many doctors and
specialists who had no idea what was going on
I eventually saw a top immunologist who told me I had food-dependent exercise
induced anaphylaxis! Quite a mouthful there. What that means is basically you
need a trigger food which for me is peanuts plus exercise and then you’ll
get the anaphylactic reaction. So if you don’t have the food and you exercise
you’re fine … if you have the food and you don’t exercise you’re fine … but if you
have those two together then you’re going to not be able to breathe and need
to go to a hospital. So for me if I eat some of these Snickers I won’t be able
to exercise for the next 24 hours so that’s my excuse 😜 If any of you have
weird allergies and you’re incredibly rare person too which just means it’s
going to take ages to get diagnosed properly tell me about it in the
comments I’d like to hear about it and commiserate with you. Put that back in
the freezer for at least a few hours then spread out some chocolate. I’m not
bothering to temper this because it’s going to go in the freezer so we don’t
need to and then put that big slab of ice cream and caramel on top. Use a
spatula to quickly spread the chocolate up the sides all the way up as far as
you can. Now this is going to set really quickly obviously because of the cold
ice cream so you need to work fairly fast and just keep spreading that up.
Once all the sides are done pour more chocolate on top and spread it out all
over and then you’ll need to of course put this back in the freezer so that
your ice cream stays frozen and doesn’t start to melt. Now it’s time to wrap it
up put it on some cellophane. Far out that’s heavy! I can’t get my fingers
out! Got it okay now wrap the cellophane
around first. I’m using cellophane because I don’t want the ice cream drips
on the paper to make it go soggy once we start cutting it, so I thought I’ll put
the plastic on first. Once you’ve done that layer then we’ll wrap around some
wrapping paper and tape it into place. put some glue inside each end and squash
the ends together so that it looks like the end of a chocolate bar wrapper then
print a label and use some glue to stick it on top. Make sure you put ice cream
bar so people know to store it in the freezer and then cut a zig-zag pattern
out of each end and there you have a giant Snickers ice cream bar! That wasn’t
too hard to make in the end and it looks pretty impressive and it weighs a
whopping 8.7 kilograms or 19 pounds so it’s definitely one that
you would want to share! Let’s check what that looks like on the inside… Subscribe to HowToCookThat for more

  31. TheCuriousHobbyist says:

    7:05 I notice the labels look a bit fuzzy, even on the video. I wonder if you would have used an image editing program to enlarge the resolution of this and fill in the edges, would it look less fuzzy? Because wherever you got this label from, it was meant for a regular Snickers bar, so there is obviously a difference in scale here. On a regular wrapper, you wouldn't see those pixels or fuzzy/jagged effect on the edges of the letters and such. However, once you scale it to a size this large, those things may start to show.

    Hi Ann, I too have weird allergies. My two food related allergies that we know of is Corn and Tomatoes. I cannot eat either. It is such a odd and confusing allergy to explain to people lol. Whenever I’m at restaurants and have to explain this to waiters I also get the weirdest looks and many questions.

    i have had back pain since 10th grade and they found scoliosis and i had one surgery to correct it. in 2015 i think and year a go i think(i cant remember the dates so many painkillers post surgery i couldnt tell what day it was) i had to get a second surgery cause the first guy botched it up so me and my family said screw it were going to Columbia New york presbyterian for a doctor and we did and i got the second surgery and structurally were doing fine but the pain isnt fixed and my pain dr and my new surgeon have no idea why so 3 years out iim still relying on hefty doses of narcotics at 20 years old to kill the pain.

  40. Muffin McBean says:

    My weird allergy is to an antibiotic called Ceftriaxone. Only like 5-10% of people are allergic to it. They give it as a general antibiotic to people with cancer who also have a ‘power port’ in their chest, for administering chemo and other meds, to treat them if they have a fever. I only had it once and it was the last time as Well so I suppose it wouldn’t have been easy to diagnose had I not developed cancer.

    I was in the hospital during chemo once and I spiked a fever so they gave me some in a drip bag. After a few minutes I was itchy, covered in hives, coughing and giving trouble breathing.

    They said I must be allergic to it so my mom asked them to stop the medication but it had already all gone it.
    So they ordered up emergency benedryl and sent me down to the ICU just in case.
    All is good now – I got a red medical bracelet with the name of the medication I can’t have and I’m in remission (🙏🏼🤞🏼).

    I wish Anne would've used a caramel nougat flavored ice cream but that's wishful thinking. Maybe I'll try to make my own and use the caramel nougat flavored ice cream. Sounds like a plan to me.

  47. simplylinn says:

    Don’t know how weird it is but I can’t have strawberries and peanuts together. I know I was at a party where they had nuts as like a “pre starter” and for desert it was something with strawberries. Yeah that was not very good for me lol

    If they have to add a lot of extra fat to make it thinner… then why am I still fat?

  54. I'm Broke says:

    Hey ann, is it possible to have an anaphylactic reaction because of dust and some type of food?

  55. Tindra says:

    I too have a weird something, basically when I get stressed or tired (for example, crowded places, if I’m feeling depressed, school work and just being in school) it feels like I’m dreaming, nothing feels real and I can barely see. It’s very difficult to explain so they still haven’t figured out What’s wrong with me lol

  56. Xxxsorrow says:

    I would eat that in 3 days. Snickers is my favorite.

  57. LPSviolet TV says:

    Why do I still watch these videos even though I am allergic, I guess it is so satisfying 😂

  58. Shadowheart Art says:

    It's not a severe reaction like anaphylactic shock… but I'm allergic to garlic. I get red, itchy little bumps on my hands and throat, and it feels just like when I have a sore throat (on the inside, obviously). I get a bit dizzy, and if I've had a bigger quantity, I vomit. If I get to that stage, I know I'll end up getting some kind of nasty flu or stomach flu about 3-4 days later (Guess my immune system ignores everything but the garlic?)
    If people have used fresh garlic in dishes, I can get sick just from the smell.
    Usually not a big problem, since I cook myself, but eating out is a real challenge. I also can't buy most pre-made sauces, pestos, marinades or rubs, and some french fry types are off limits too ('cause they put either garlic powder on, or standard barbecue spices – which has garlic)

    Rams (or Bear garlic) has been a savior for me, since it gives the garlicky flavour, but doesn't make me sick. Now if only stores would use only rams, instead of adding BOTH garlic and rams…

    Please me I like chocolate

  60. nocnastrzyga says:

    Wow, you're lucky there was someone who could diagnose you properly. I've heard about multi-cause allergies, when there have to be all of the particular allergens present (for ex. you are allergic to carrot but only when birch tree is pollinating). But I've never heard about an allergy, that has anything to do with exercising.

    can you make a giant klodikbar the ice crem ones

  62. GhormiBear says:

    I’m allergic to the cold. When its really cold I get sore red blotches on any exposed skin. I live in the UK so this can be an issue at some parts of the year!

  64. LittleCookie Monster says:

    I feel like I'm weird for not having any allergies. It seems like I'm the only person in the world who isn't allergic to anything.

  65. Addison Monroe says:

    how about trying to say the correct ingredient in the snickers bar. because I have had millions of sinkers bars and there is no ice cream in a snicker bar

  66. Stephanie Valhalla says:

    Wtf that sucks!

    I wouldn't want to share

    I'd hiss at anyone who looked at it
