Country-Style Chocolate Ice Cream

By Ms.Gourmet on June 16, 2010 12:08 PM
The first batch of ice cream I made was none other than Marcella Hazan's world famous Gelato di Cioccolato del Cipriani. After months of experimenting with all sorts of ice cream, gelato and sorbet recipes I can firmly say that Marcella's chocolate gelato recipe is by far my favourite. Hence, it's deeply rich, terribly decadent and luxuriously sublime - everything good quality ice cream should be.

Although Hoover loved Marcella's chocolate gelato, Fussy on the other hand found it 'way too rich'. If you are new to this blog I will spare you the frustratingly mundane details about my eldest child's incredibly pedantic palate. Needless to say I have been experimenting behind the scenes trying to come up with a more 'child friendly' chocolate ice cream that even the fussiest of palates will enjoy.

Well I'm thrilled to announce that I've finally done it, with a little help from Tessa and Jacqueline!

Hence, the recipe below is from my dear friend Jacqueline who has cleverly reworked Tessa Kiros charming vanilla ice cream recipe. I must admit I was a little dubious about making ice cream with sweetened condensed milk, but the end result was a wonderfully dense, rich, country-style, chocolate ice cream that the most discerning child critic finally devoured!

395g sweetened condensed milk

5 organic egg yolks

600ml thick cream

1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Whip the egg yolks with the vanilla extract until they are pale and fluffy. Add the condensed milk and continue to whisk until it is well incorporated.

2. Whip the cream in a separate bowl until it is thick. Scrape the egg yolk mixture and the cooled melted chocolate into the cream and whisk until it is well incorporated.

3. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker and proceed according to the manufacturers instructions.
