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

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 🙂
