Chocolate I Scream!

OK, I know ice cream has very little to do with Steam Oven Cooking...well nothing in fact, but MERCY it was good! I have been a bit obsessed with the old Thermomix, whipping up entire meals for thousands in seconds, and because of unseasonal sunny weather, the ice-cream idea just beckoned...and well, I am a star, what can I say? Get a load of this, but remember, NOT INSTANT...unless you get a flask of Liquid Nitrogen, you'll be waiting overnight for this taste sensation.

I now am going to add toasted almonds, macadamias or whatever, replace the dark chocolate with white, add cherries, or peanut butter ganache, replace half the cream with a bought custard...oh the mind boggles! Clearly I need to get more acquainted with the gym, that I have been so lax with of late!

Chocolate I Scream!

  •   200 g dark chocolate
  •   200 g caster sugar
  •   1 tsp Heilala vanilla bean paste
  •   Pinch sea salt

Do

  1. Place chocolate in TM bowl and chop 10 sec/speed 8. Remove from bowl and set aside.

  2. Place eggs and sugar into TM bowl insert butterfly. Beat 4 min/37°C/speed 3.

  3. Add all remaining ingredients, including chopped chocolate.

  4. Cook 5 min/80°C/speed 5.

  9. You can beat it again if you would like it to be a lighter mixture...but I personally like a 'heavy' ice cream.

Scoop into bowls or waffle cones and work at not eating it all in one sitting! This amount should serve 6-8 generously.
