For the lover of all things beer and ice cream this extremely simple recipe is right up your street. Courtesy of Clapton Craft  this simplistic desert will have your mouth drooling, and what could be better than booze and desert combined?

Here at Idle HQ we have decided to give you something a little different. Other than Bonfire Night, the 5th of November is host to something else, Men Make Dinner Day. This day is purely dedicated to men making the dinner for their friends or partners, so it's time to put your apron on, cook up a storm in the kitchen and get your creative hats on because you'll want to cook to impress!

Men Make Dinner Day was started by Sandy Sharkey and she's been pushing men off of the sofa and into the kitchen to their partners' cries of joy. So lads, put down the beer and the remote and pick up a whisk, you never know, you may even like it!

We have teamed up with some of the best restaurants, food bloggers and chefs to create a fantastic e-Book filled with amazing recipes from mac and cheese to haute cuisine - so whether you're feeling fancy or like to keep it simple then there is a recipe in this book for you.

Pour the beer into tall glasses and scoop the ice cream on top of it. Splash a touch of brandy over the top and shave some chocolate over the ice cream. Simply delicious.
