Malted Milk Chocolate Ice-Cream

Remember this post, when I told you about what my sister gave to me for my birthday?  Yes, she gave me one of the best presents you can give a sister: Ice-cream. 


Please don’t be fooled.  This is not just any ice-cream.  This is MALTED MILK CHOCOLATE ICE-CREAM.  It’s basically at the top of the world ice-cream hierarchy (that’s why I gave it capital letters).  A human equivalent of this ice-cream might be Barrack Obama. Rich and smooth, but understated.  Creamy-chocolately.  Yummy.


Anyway, we’re getting side tracked.  Back to the ice-cream.  Please make this.  Give it to someone you love.  Package it up nicely and make no secret that it is all. for. them.


They will love you for it.  They will tell all their friends how amazing you are (on their blog).  The world will feel like a better place.


What you’ll need:

2 egg yolks, 50g sugar, 150g milk chocolate, 250ml milk, 2 tablespoons Horlicks, 150ml cream.

Here’s How:

  • Beat together egg yolk and sugar until pale and cream
  • Heat the milk (do not boil) and whisk in the Horlicks.  Add a little of the warm milk to the egg mixture, then return it all to the saucepan.
  • Cook on a very gentle heat until slightly thickened- like a light, thin custard
  • Add the chopped chocolate and stir until melted
  • Leave to cool completely with cling film directly on the surface of the custard. Once cooled, add the cream.
  • Transfer mixture to your ice-cream maker, or alternatively put it into the freezer, stirring with a fork every 30 minutes, until frozen.

P.s  The possibility of curdling the custard scares me too- but let’s stay calm and we’ll get through this together (Yes we can!)
