What’s more popular than ice cream? Nothing. Which flavour is more popular that chocolate? None. Create it right at your own home and no more dependency on the taste of your local ice-cream parlour. What’s more is that this homemade method allows you to infuse more health into your ice cream and is free from the loaded preservatives and sugar in conventional ice cream stores. Natural flavours, low on sugar and good quality home milk are the big advantages to this choice. Choose this for your child’s play date dessert option or a casual dining meet, and you can be sure you’ll be talked about the next day. In a good way that is! Here’s your guide to this lip smacking dessert.
PREP 20 mins
FREEZING TIME 8 hours
5 cups milk (full fat or skimmed)
1 cup heavy cream
8 large eggs
¾ cup cocoa powder (unsweetened)
9 ounces sugar (brown or white)
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup Nutella
LETS COOK IT UP!
In a saucepan, mix the cocoa powder and 1 cup of milk and whisk together. Add the rest of the milk to this mixture, along with the heavy cream and bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.
In a medium sized bowl, whisk the eggs and sugar together. Take less than half of the cream mixture prepared above and mix it in with the milk and sugar.
Now, pour in the remaining cream mixture and place on the gas over low heat. Keep stirring until the mixture has thickened.
Pour the mixture into a large container and let it cool at room temperature for 30-45 minutes.
Once cooled, add the vanilla extract and place uncovered in the refrigerator for 1 hour. Now, cover and store in the refrigerator for 7-8 hours.
