A rich and delicious chocolate icecream - made easy with the Wonderchef Icecream Maker from Goldair!
In a saucepan add the milk and the cream and add the vanilla bean seeds and the vanilla pod. Simmer the mixture over a very low heat for 15-20 mins. Remove the vanilla bean pod.
In a mixing bowl add all other ingredients except the chocolate and the vanilla essence. Using a hand mixer, mix until thick.
Add I cup of the hot milk mixture and mix until fully incorporated.
Add the chocolate to the rest of the hot milk and stir until dissolved. Add the egg mixture to the hot milk mixture and cook over low heat stirring all the time until the mixture thickens and looks like a thick chocolate custard. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the vanilla essence. Cover with cling film and refrigerate until cold.
Assemble the ice cream maker and turn on.
Pour the mixture into the freezer bowl and let it mix until thickened. This will take about 30-35 mins.
Any additional ingredients can be added 5 mins prior to completion by adding through the top spout.
The ice cream will have a soft-serve consistence. If a firmer consistency is desired, put it into a plastic container and freeze for at least 3 hours.
