Tovolo Ice Cream Scoop:

Markes 1.5 Quarts

6 egg yolks
1 cup (240 ml) of milk
2 cups (480 ml) cream
2/3 cup (130 g) sugar
½ tsp (2.5) salt
8 0z (226 g) bittersweet chocolate (minimum 60% cocao)

For Mix-Ins
4 ounces (113 g) semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1 cup (150 g) walnuts, chopped
2/3 cup (75 g) dried cherries

Place 6 egg yolks in a large heat safe bowl and whisk together.

Place the bittersweet chocolate in another heat safe bowl and set aside.

Place the milk, cream , sugar and salt in a medium size pot and heat until simmering. Then pour the cream mixture over the chocolate and let stand while you wash out your pot, and then whisk until chocolate melts and is smooth.

Then, slowly pour about 1/3 cup of the warm chocolate mixture into the egg mixture and whisk to “temper the eggs” essentially bringing the temperature of the eggs up gradually so that your eggs don’t scramble.

Then you can add the rest of the warm chocolate mixture slowly, whisking all the while. Set aside.

Then prepare an ice bath. I like to use a large sautee pan and fill it with ice. The metal of the pan, keeps the ice from melting. Set a medium size bowl on top, and top that with a fine mesh sieve. Set this aside, you’ll need it in a minute.

Then heat your chocolate mixture slowly on a medium flame until custard thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon. (about 4-5 mins) Don’t rush this step since you want to make sure the eggs have a chance to cook as well

Then pour the warm chocolate mixture over the sieve and into the bowl resting in the ice bath. Allow this mixture to cool, stirring occasionally so that a skin does not form.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours until well chilled, or overnight.

Then pour your mixture into your ice cream maker and begin to process according to your machine’s instructions.

In the final moments before your ice cream is done churning (about 5 mins before), pour the melted semi-sweet chocolate into the machine’s feed tube in a thin stream which will create an instantly hardened chocolate ribbon. ☺

Then add the walnuts and then the cherries.

When ice cream is done, transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze overnight.

Ice cream will keep in your freezer for at least 5 days. (If you can keep it around that long!)

    Hi Beth, I was thinking if can I actually use egg yolks from a box? because I do not want to waste any egg whites but I also want to make this delicious recipe.

    If you don't have an ice cream maker, what you can do is put the ice cream mixture to chill in the freezer, then take it out every 20 minutes or so and give it a proper mixing up. That'll help to break up the ice crystals that are forming and make for a smoother, less icy ice cream

    Hi Beth, greetings from PR. I've started watching your videos recently and I'm already a fan. I wanted to tell you that you can make ice cream without egg or and ice cream machine using a ziplock bag or any other container that can be sealed of course, ice and salt. You just use equal amounts of half n half and milk, 1 or 2 tablespoons of sugar and whatever flavoring you want, you have to make sure you mix it well so that the sugar melts and if you're using a ziplock bag make sure you get all the air out of it, otherwise it'll open and the water will spoil the ice cream mix. Then to make the ice cream you take some ice put it in a beach cooler or a bigger ziplock bag and add salt to the ice, this will bring the temp of the ice below 0 but also make the ice melt faster, then you put the ziplock bag or whatever container you have the ice cream mix in and put it on top of the ice and salt, if you want you can put some more ice and salt on top of the container or just leave it as is. Then you put the lid on the cooler or you seal the ziplock bag and you shake it, the time you shake it for depends on the consistency you want your ice cream at just make sure you check it regularly until you've got the desired consistency. I did it as a chemistry lab assignment and it worked, it tasted like the ice cream you buy at the ice cream shop. Try it and let me know if it works for you.
