Recipe For Bitter Chocolate Malt Ice Cream

I cannot get enough of the barley malt syrup and decided that an ice cream would be next on my agenda. Greg who is the chef at Waterkloof has provided me with a lot of inspiration for ice cream flavours. He is a chef I respect and admire and he has given me his recipes to try out at home. Of the recipes he has shared with me, there are two ice cream recipes, and even though I have not made either one yet, I have used them as inspiration for my own ice cream. I decided to make a bitter chocolate malt ice cream as an accompaniment to something sweet that needs tempering. However, I have stalled a bit and not yet made the perfect dessert to go with my ice cream. I have a recipe on my fridge ready and waiting to go but I have not really been in the mood for baking. I think it is a bit of a mid winter slump, but that is sure to change before too long. In the meantime, I can keep on dipping my spoon into this ice cream and dream of summer!

  8. Nice creation, Tandy! How bitter is bitter? I’m certain it’s still lovely sweet with a hint of bitterness on the side ;). Thanks for sharing!

    1. I would rate it at about 80% bitter which is not sweet enough for some people but perfect for me 🙂

  12. I love the taste of malt, Tandy. There is a powdered drink here in Australia called Milo that has a lovely chocolaty malty taste. I bet this tastes a little like that … lovely!

  17. I’m really looking forward to summer now – not that you can’t make ice cream in winter, I just prefer it then. Last summer was the first time I tried making ice cream and I loved it! Though I used a recipe that used condensed milk and not eggs. Looking forward to trying some of your recipes so I can keep an eye on the sugar.
