Chocolate Ice Cream

We would be making Ice Creammmmmmmmmmmmmmm today...We would be making simple yummy creamy chocolate ice cream without an ice cream machine and all you need to do it isn't much at all...Feel free to make a lot that is if you have constant light to prevent it from crystallising...Wink

  • egg yolks
  • caster sugar
  • full cream milk
  • heavy/double cream
  • milk or dark chocolate bar grated
  • milk or dark chocolate bar melted
  • a pinch of salt
  • vanilla extract
  • cocoa powder

Lets Make It
1. Mix together the egg yolks and caster sugar in a bowl, stirring well, beat until smooth. 
2. Pour the milk into a saucepan and heat gently on medium heat until hot. DO NOT BOIL. Then stir the hot milk into the egg and sugar mix. Mix well.
3. Pour the mixture back to the saucepan and heat gently, stirring frequently. DO NOT BOIL. After several minutes it will start to thicken into a custard. At this point remove from heat.
4. Melt your chocolate bar in a microwave or put it in a pan and put on top a bigger pan of boiling water on heat and stir until it has melted or melt it inside the custard mixture.
5. Add the cocoa powder using a sift and mix well ensuring all the lumps have dissolved. Add vanilla, salt (a tiny pinch), and some of the grated chocolate. Leave the mixture to cool.
6. Pour the cream into a separate bowl and whip till fluffy. Stir the cream into your custard mix. Mix it very well and put in the freezer.
7. Every 30 minutes keep bringing it out of the freezer and stir vigorously with a spatula or whisker. Add all the grated chocolate. This will prevent it from crystallising and freezing properly. Put back in the freezer. Do this step until the starts getting frozen.
8. Leave in the freezer over night. It is advisable to do it when you are heading to bed so you dont get tempted to keep checking it.
9. Your yummy creamy chocolate ice cream is ready to be enjoyed. I usually serve mine with waffles and banana, try whatever you like with it, nuts and all...It is ice cream! everything goes i guess or maybe not everything on a second thought...hehehe...Enjoy
