The latest flavour was recently launched alongside its activism campaign for climate change which demands we ‘fudge-off’ fossil fuels for renewable energy.
“I'm passionate about the sweet joys of life and that includes doing what I can to be a part of a future I can happily stomach,” said Katherine.
The clever creation is a combination of ice-cream, fudge brownies, peanut butter cookie dough and is topped with peanut brittle, pretzels and marshmallows.

Peanut Brittle Recipe
1 cup salted, roasted peanuts
2 1/2 cup caster sugar
1/2 cup water
50 grams butter (softened)
Optional: Edible gold powder, to decorate
1. Line an 18 x 28cm slice pan with non-stick baking paper. Spread nuts over base.
2. Combine sugar and water in a saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves, then bring to the boil. Gently boil, occasionally brushing the sides of the pan with a pastry brush dipped in water, for 25 minutes, or until a rich golden colour.
3. Remove pan from heat and stir in the butter with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until just combined.
4. Quickly pour the toffee mixture into the prepared pan (it won't fill it completely). Set aside in a cool place until the toffee sets.
5. Dust with edible gold powder (if using) and break the brittle into pieces. Store in a greaseproof paper-lined, airtight container, with greaseproof paper between each layer of brittle. NOTE: A sugar thermometer will reach 170°C when the syrup is ready.
