Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream

If you are a fan of chocolate, you have to make this Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream this summer. You’ll thank me later for being so assertive about this, so just go with it. Start gathering your ingredients now and plan ahead. Because this ice cream is the most decadent ice cream I’ve ever eaten.

And it requires even more patience than most ice cream recipes. This ice cream takes 5 days to make! Yep, five days. And believe me, it’s worth the wait.

Scooping this ice cream is somewhat difficult because it’s just so thick. I served it with freshly whipped cream and raspberries to lighten up the thickness a bit. When I had some of the ice cream by itself, I could only eat a small scoop because it was just so rich.

I have to thank Fiona for sharing this recipe for me. We were emailing one day and she mentioned she was making it. I got started on my batch that very night when I got home. You should do the same.

Chocolate Truffle Ice Cream

Ingredients:

7 ounces dark chocolate (70% to 75% cacao), finely chopped
2 cups plus 2 Tbsp whole milk (I used coconut milk here)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 egg yolks
13 Tbsp sugar, divided
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream

Directions:

Place chocolate in a medium metal bowl. Set bowl over a saucepan of barely simmering water. Stir chocolate until melted and smooth. Set melted chocolate aside; let cool slightly.

Whisk milk and cocoa powder in a medium heavy saucepan over medium heat until mixture begins to boil; set aside.

Using an electric mixer, beat egg yolks and 7 tablespoons sugar in another medium bowl until very thick ribbons form, about 2 minutes. Whisking constantly, gradually add hot milk mixture to egg yolk mixture. Return mixture to saucepan. Add melted chocolate and whisk to blend. Stir over low heat until slightly thickened and an instant-read thermometer registers 175°, about 5 minutes. Transfer chocolate custard to a large bowl and place over another large bowl of ice water. Stir until chocolate custard is cool.

Bring remaining 6 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons water to a boil in a small heavy, deep saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Boil, occasionally swirling pan and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush (do not stir), until a dark amber color forms, about 5 minutes. Gradually whisk in cream (mixture will bubble vigorously). Whisk caramel into chocolate custard. Strain into a large container; cover and chill for 2 days.

Process custard in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to another container; freeze for 3 days before eating.

    The first step is admitting you have a problem, the next step is sending your fresh baked sweets to your buddies in Indy! I’m here to help you through these tough times. 🙂

    I empathize with your baking addiction and apologize for being a food stalker – I actually made the brownies for work today! The funny thing is that a coworker forwarded me the link to your blog and these brownies yesterday and I was pleased to tell her that I was already a devoted fan.
