I was supposed to post it yesterday to welcome The First Day of Spring… but… yes, as usual “a but” :) Since Spring decided to come a bit late, I decided to follow its example :)
I spotted this flavour in one of our cafes and thought it would be nice to try to make it at home… Nothing new, right? :)
As a base I used checked, tasty, sure, tried and trusted Chocolate Ice-Cream from Moje Wypieki.
Here it is, especially for you – My Sweet Addiction :)
May Spring be with you!
Ingredients (for about 700ml):
- 300ml heavy cream
- 300ml milk
- 90g sugar (about 1/3 cup)
- 4 yolks
- 100g dark chocolate
- 60g milk chocolate
- 1 flat tsp vanilla flavour
- about 15 prunes
- a bit of rum
Chop prunes into smaller pieces and pour them with rum.
You can use as much rum as you want ;) but ideally would be to cover the prunes with alcohol. If you don’t feel like using so much rum, just don’t :)
Leave in the fridge overnight.
Chop both chocolates.
Whisk the yolks till they get whitish.
Heat up milk with cream and sugar till it’s dissolved. Do not boil the mixture!
Add whisked yolks to warm milk mixture still stiring it and keeping it on low-heat.
It’ll take a moment or two :)
Once the mass gets gluey and sticky and really thick, take it off the heat. Do not boil it!!!
Add chopped chocolate and the flavour and stir everything thoroughly till it’s smooth and combined.
Leave for the whole night in the fridge.
1 – Start mixing it every one or two hours, putting the mass in the freezer after each mixing.
When the mass gets so thick that it will be impossible to mix it, add chopped prunes and leave it in the freezer :)
2 – Use the Ice-Cream Maker to mix the mass. At the end of mixing, add drunk prunes and leave in the freezer :)
