Chocolate I Scream!

Serves 8-10
by Tenina Holder

MERCY this is 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 custard...oh the mind boggles! Clearly I need to get more acquainted with the gym, that I have been so lax with of late!

Need

  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 500 g cream
  • 250 g milk
  • 200 g golden caster sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla - Bean Paste vanilla bean paste BUY
  • Pinch pink salt flakes

Place eggs and sugar into TM bowl. Beat 4 min/37°C/Butterfly/speed 3. Remove Butterfly.

3  

Add all remaining ingredients, including chopped chocolate.

4

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.
