How can just 5 simple ingredients combine to become this heavenly? Centuries ago they may have thought this to be magical, but since the birth of refridgeration, its easier than ever to eat divine ices. While there are many incredible shop bought ice creams out there, I'm a huge advocate of homemade ice cream. Trust me when I say that more often than not it is worth the effort!
There are many chocolate ice cream recipes online and I've seen many that call for less egg yolks, but I find this recipe to be rich, smooth and delicious and can't stop myself from making it this way.
This recipe will require the use of an ice cream machine.
|250 ml whole milk|
|250 ml double cream|
|125 grams caster sugar|
|5 egg yolks|
|100 grams good quality dark chocolate|
I tend to use Green & Blacks Organic Dark Cooking Chocolate for this recipe or their Organic 70% Dark Chocolate if the cooking chocolate isn't available. Use the best quality chocolate you can find.
