Ingredients

  • 8 yolks eggs
  • 175g golden caster sugar
  • 1 litre milk
  • 200g 70% dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 250g (good quality cocoa powder, such as Green & Black’s)

Method

  • STEP 1

    Whisk the egg yolks and sugar with electric beaters until very thick and pale.

  • STEP 2

    Pour the milk into a saucepan, add the chocolate and cocoa and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until blended. Pour over the yolk mixture when still hot, beating all the time.

  • STEP 3

    Pour the chocolate mix into an ice-cream maker and churn until frozen, or pour into a container and freeze for 2-3 hours until beginning to firm up then whisk thoroughly to break up any crystals. Freeze until solid. Leave to soften in the fridge for 20-30 minutes before serving.
