Magnum Ego recipe: same great taste, less guilt

According to its marketing Magnum Egos are described as ‘nothing but pure decadence’ –  which we would have to agree with. So of course we needed to take this treat and make it guilt-free. The ice cream may have a slight banana taste but I promise the caramel is spot on and the chocolate has its cracking factor. This is one of those desserts that is simple to make but does require some patience as you allow the different layers to set.  So before you give in and eat it raw, claiming that cookie dough is always so much better unbaked, we promise the wait is well worth it.
