Chocolate ice cream

Ruby Violet's Ice Cream Dream
Danielle Wood

This quote for me sums up the joy of chocolate:

“Personally, I like a chocolate-covered sky. Dark, dark chocolate. People say it suits me. I do, however, try to enjoy every colour I see – the whole spectrum. A billion or so flavours, none of them quite the same, and a sky to slowly suck on. It takes the edge off the stress. It helps me relax.” -from The Book Thief by Markus Zusak


Quantity Ingredient
800ml Basic sweetened ice cream mix
100g plain chocolate, either as callets or grated
50g cocoa powder, (unsweetened)


  1. To make the ice cream, simply make one quantity of the basic sweetened mix and make up to the stage before cooling.
  2. Add the chocolate and cocoa powder to the hot mix and whisk in.
  3. Leave the mix to cool, then place into the ice-cream maker and churn. Scoop the churned ice cream into a container and keep in the freezer until ready to serve.


  • Chilli chocolate ice cream

    Make the chocolate ice cream as above then, after the chocolate and cocoa powder have been whisked into the hot mix, add half a teaspoon of chilli sauce. You don’t need very much: the idea is to taste the chocolate first then get a hit of the chilli 10 seconds or so after.

    Chocolate rosemary ice cream

    I can never resist picking rosemary and pressing it between my fingers to release the fragrance and all the memories associated with it. Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, was often depicted with a garland of rosemary as it was a symbol of fidelity. Maybe she also knew it stimulated the circulation. Use 20 g fresh rosemary leaves, stripped off the stems, then added to the hot mix and leave to infuse overnight in the fridge. Strain and churn.

    Chocolate hazelnut crunch ice cream

    Add 100 g hazelnut paste. Once the chocolate and cocoa powder have been thoroughly mixed in, whisk in the hazelnut paste slowly until fully incorporated.
