Homemade ice cream without an ice cream machine: Chocolate flavor!

DSC_0167

After all the running around to finish up my cookbook and then deliver copies to all the resellers and collecting orders, I was in need of ice cream! I just did! My body was screaming strong and laud…I could not ignore it.

So I decided to try a new flavor of my “homemade ice cream, without an ice cream machine” recipe. After the coffee flavor one, this time I went for my beloved chocolate.

Boy this was good…please make it. Please!!!

Ingredients (for 500 gr ice cream):

  • 3 eggs
  • 100 g sugar
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 500 ml heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp chocolate syrup
  • 3 tbsp chopped caramelized nuts (optional)

Separate the egg yolks from the whites. In a bowl cream the yolks with the sugar, then add the cocoa powder

and the chocolate syrup

Whisk to combine all the ingredients together

In a separate bowl whip up the egg whites

and then separately whip up the heavy cream. Gently fold all the ingredients together then move the final product into a plastic container

and put it in the freezer for at least 4 hours

When ready to serve, scoop it out

and garnish with some chopped caramelized nuts

Then close your eyes and enjoy it :)

Love

  1. I often dream of all the ice cream flavors I could concoct if I only had an ice cream machine.  Then I remember how I hate to take up space in my cabinets for gadgets and the desire for an ice cream machine passes.  This recipe is my solution, This ice cream looks soft, creamy and yummy!
