Nutella ice cream…


To be quite blunt and totally honest, the only reason I made ice cream is because I had cream that needed using up. And I happened to have an extra jar of Nutella. I hate wasting things and with four kids in the house I know they will devour some chocolate ice cream wether or not we get sunshine!

Nutella ice cream

4 large egg yolks
100g caster sugar
500ml cream
100g dark chocolate
25g cocoa powder
200g Nutella

Whisk the egg yolks and sugar until thick and creamy(until the ribbon stage). Bring the cream to the boil and slowly add to the yolks, beating it all the time. Melt the chocolate and whisk in. Then add the cocoa. Pour the custard mixture back into the pan and cook on medium, stirring all the time till it becomes a smooth custard. Put the pot into a sink of cold water to cool, mindful not to let any water get into the mixture. Stir every minute or so until cool. Then whisk in he Nutella. Pour into a plastic container and put into the freezer. Whisk again after two hours and then leave overnight to freeze. Scoop into waffle cones and hope the sun comes out!
