    It may be an iconic Australian spread, but would you eat a Vegemite icy pole?

    Vegemite has released the recipe on Twitter: "Brace yourselves Australia … it's time for VEGEMITE Icy Poles! #chilled," the company wrote.

    If you're game enough to try it, here's the full recipe.


    • 2/3 cup caster sugar
      1/2 cup cocoa
      1/4 cup honey
      2 tablespoon Vegemite
      3 teaspoons cornflour
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      1 cup milk
      1 cup thickened cream, whipped
      Combine in a saucepan the sugar, cocoa, honey, Vegemite, corn flour and milk.
      Whisk over a medium heat until the mixture is smooth, bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer gently until slightly thickened and custard like.
      Remove from the heat, pour into a heat proof bowl and chill. Fold the whipped cream through the chilled custard mixture then pour into popsicle moulds. Freeze until firm.
