With many of us turning to baking and cooking during lockdown, Magnum has partnered with Deliveroo to offer DIY kits to make your own Magnum's at home.

With the lockdown set to continue for several weeks, people across the UK are keeping themselves entertained at home by taking up arts and crafts, home improvements and cooking.

This surge in budding home bakers resulted in an increase of 84 per cent in online searches for banana bread recipes and sales of baking items to rise by 223 per cent throughout March.

This has lead to many big chains sharing recipes for their much-loved dishes, and now ice cream giant Magnum is set to join those encouraging people to get creative in the kitchen with their DIY Make my Magnum kits.

What's in the kits?

These complimentary kits will be delivered on 24 April and have everything for a bespoke Magnum creation - something which is only usually available in the Magnum Pleasure stores.

The kit contains Magnum Ruby, the world-first pairing of ice cream and the recently discovered fourth type of chocolate, Ruby.

Toppings include much-loved flavours from the Magnum Pleasure Store such as: white chocolate shavings, chocolate fudge brownie, freeze dried raspberry crumble, lemon crunch and milk chocolate signature Magnum M coins.

Dark chocolate is provided to melt and drizzle on your Magnum masterpiece.

A handy how-to guide leads keen ice-cream fans through the experience, though creative freedom is encouraged.

Each Make My Magnum Kit includes:

  • 1x Magnum Ruby multipack
  • 5x toppings in biodegradable vegware portion pots
  • Chocolate signature Magnum Ms in biodegradable vegware portion pot
  • Chocolate drops to melt in biodegradable vegware cup
  • 3x Recipe cards – recipes available for editorial use upon request
  • How-to guide
  • Allergen information

For those inspired to try their hand at Magnum creations with other toppings throughout the summer, the kit also includes three bespoke recipes inspired by great British Summertime Classics.

These include: The Strawberries and Cream, featuring Magnum Ruby, white chocolate, mini meringue kisses and freeze dried strawberry crunch; The Ice Cream Sundae, featuring Magnum Ruby, freeze dried cherry slices, dark chocolate and fudge brownie; and The Summer Cup, featuring Magnum Ruby, white chocolate, lemon jelly, sweets, fresh mint and lemon popping Candy.
