Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Very Chocolate Ice Cream – The Darkest Dark Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe is an ice cream for hardcore chocolate lovers who like their chocolate dark, bittersweet and fruity.

This is the story of chocolate lovers. Hardcore fans. Those who shy away from chocolate desserts because they are always too light on chocolate. People who take their chocolate like goth kids take their souls: dark, moody and bitter.

This is for you because I am one of you. Give me a dessert menu and my eyes glaze over at the requisite chocolate selection. Because it usually isn’t—not from a hardcore chocolate lover’s perspective, anyway. Chocolate

? Of course. Maybe fudgy and brownie-esque, or milky like a “chocolate” milkshake made with vanilla ice cream and some syrup. Maybe even “dark” if you’re talking to a novice type of count

Today it’s time to switch things up by whipping up a dessert that’s not just chocolaty, but actually full-on crazy-dark chocolate, as good and complex as a bar. As with any dark journey, getting there is all about knowing your enemy and keeping a secret trick up your sleeve. So get out your three-pronged lightsaber, because we’re going over to the dark side.

If you’re feeling more Luke than Anakin (don’t blame yourself there) and want a more mild milky chocolate, it’s time to hop on one of these milk chocolate cream recipes. They’re also great, and they offer a persistent cocoa flavor that complements but doesn’t overwhelm the dairy and other ingredients.

The trick to making decent milk chocolate ice cream is simple: a few spoonfuls of cocoa powder. You don’t need particularly high-quality cocoa. Your final product will be slightly better if you use it, but my tasters had no trouble polishing off a couple of quarts of milk chocolate ice cream made by Hershey’s. Mild cocoa brings the perfect “chocolaty” flavor to ice cream in a friendly way that, if you’re doing a rocky road, might be exactly what you’re looking for.

“As for the texture, I wanted it to feel more like a frozen dessert—a frosted truffle rather than a chocolate ice cream edged on top of a ganache.”

Dark-as-my-soul chocolate ice cream needs more. Everyone has their own definition of the best, but mine just includes big chocolate flavors and rich, rounded cocoa qualities; It also contains the fruity-lemon bitterness, tartness and crunch of a quality dark chocolate bar. As for the texture, I wanted it to feel more like a frosted truffle than a frozen dessert—chocolate ice cream on top of ganache.

Getting that kind of ice cream calls for more than cocoa powder, which is why almost every dark chocolate ice cream recipe calls for the right dark chocolate to give it that tart, fruity flavor. This brings us to…

If there’s one rule for good dark chocolate ice cream, it’s using quality ingredients. Now is not the time to be cheap.

Well, this is one of the most boring food-writing platitudes. And often that stupidity is bunk. We’ve seen time and time again that high-quality ingredients like dairy, eggs, and vanilla don’t necessarily produce high-quality results.

But in chocolate ice cream, the platitude rings true. Sure enough, once melted into an ice cream base, the nuances between Madagascar and Venezuela beans pretty much disappear. But the bitterness and fruity flavors remain with an overall sense of balance. So don’t break out the $12 two-and-a-half ounce flavor bars for this recipe, but use a good quality dark chocolate in the 70% range with a strong fruit flavor. Valrhona, Madecasse, Cocoa Berry and Callebot all work well.

Why not use 100% dark chocolate without sugar? You certainly can, but I’ve got a percentage that’s easy to find at most grocery stores. Many supermarkets sell high grade 70% chocolate but stock the same quality 100% in smaller quantities. If you want to use 100% chocolate, you’ll need to add a few more tablespoons of sugar to compensate.

The same goes for cocoa powder. You can use the natural or Dutch process – the first is more tart, the second more “chocolaty” – but use something better like Valrona or Pernigotti.

Above is a comparison of Valrhona and Hershey’s cocoa. Granted, Hershey’s is lighter in part because it’s more acidic “natural” cocoa, but Valrhona tastes and smells more like ground-up chocolate than the Hershey’s stuff, and I found it to make a difference in my testing. through the final product. Valrhona powder also gives a dark colored ice cream, and like it or not, the color affects the taste; I’ve found that tasters tend to judge dark-looking chocolate ice cream as darker and richer before trying a scoop.

I know at least one of you will ask why I’m not using dark cocoa powder, which gives Oreo cookies their signature color and bitterness. Black cocoa powder is fun, but very hard to find for the average person. On top of that, its flavor is more limited than traditional cocoa powder—all dark and bitter, less fruity and complex. So to get the rounded chocolate bar experience we’re going for here you’ll need to cut with traditional cocoa powder anyway.

Follow the advice above and you’ll have…every single highly regarded dark chocolate ice cream recipe out there. Sure, cookbooks and magazines call for different amounts of dark chocolate and cocoa powder, but as far as variations go.

“If you’re looking for the full dark chocolate experience, there’s one more ingredient to keep in mind: cacao nibs.”

For chocolate ice cream at work, this is a good place to stop, but if you’re looking for the full dark chocolate experience, there’s one more thing to keep in mind: cacao nibs, the cracked cores of cacao beans that are ground before they become chocolate. Cacao nibs are concentrated kernels with a bitter, fruity, tart and roasted flavor, without a trace of sweetness, perfect for enhancing our dark chocolate ice creams. And rather than adding them as crunchy mix-ins, I prefer to infuse them directly into the base.

Bring your dairy to a boil, then stir in a couple ounces of nibs and let them steep for a few hours. Take them out, then proceed to make the ice cream as normal. In a blind taste, ice cream made with cacao nibs has a subtle but noticeable added complexity, fruitiness and nuttiness. “I can’t say exactly why,” said one taster, “but it tastes more like real chocolate to me.”

For hardcore chocolate fans, that’s music to my ears. Is it worth the cost of quality chocolate, cocoa and nibs and the extra time to sink into dairy and make ice cream from scratch?

Well, you don’t become a dark chocolate lord of the Sith without smashing a few chicks along the way.
