Recipe For Triple Chocolate Ice Cream

After having perfected the art of ice cream here and a competition being set here I knew exactly what I wanted to do for my next ice cream flavour. I am a chocoholic and my favourite ice cream is triple chocolate ice cream – chocolate flavour, with chocolate chips, and a chocolate sauce running through it. So, what better thing to do at home than make it myself?

Triple Chocolate Ice Cream

I started by making the chocolate sauce and then went on to making the ice cream.

Triple Chocolate Ice Cream


  • 290 mls milk
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 110 g castor sugar - I used fructose
  • 30 mls cocoa powder
  • 290 mls cream
  • 100 g chocolate chopped into pieces


  • heat the milk in a sauce pan until it is nearly boiling
  • while you are doing this, whisk the egg yolks and the sugar until they reach ribbon stage
  • add half of the milk to the eggs while whisking
  • pour the mixture back into the sauce pan and whisk in
  • cook over a moderate heat while stirring all the time with a wooden spoon
  • as soon as it has thickened enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon add 1 tablespoon of the cocoa and mix in well
  • when mixed, add the second tablespoon of cocoa and mix in well
  • when mixed take off the heat and whisk into the cream
  • place all the ingredients into your ice cream maker
  • churn according to the manufacturer’s instructions
  • pour into an ice cream container and stir in the chocolate chunks
  • place into the freezer and after a couple of hours mix the ice cream to ensure an even distribution of the chocolate chunks

to serve:

  • you will need to warm the chocolate sauce before adding to the ice cream - add as much as your heart desires
