Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream recipe

Preparation Time: 4 hours

Cocoa powder and finely grated chocolate make this silky smooth ice cream incredibly rich and sweet. Don't skip the salt - it seasons the chocolate and makes it taste even better.


  • 7 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 125g caster sugar
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 600ml double cream
  • 100g dark chocolate, chopped into chunks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • Pinch salt


  1. Whisk together the caster sugar and cocoa, then add the eggs. Whisk until pale and fluffy, around 2-3 minutes. Beat in the cream, a little at a time, until well combined. Whisk in the vanilla and salt.

  2. Pour the ice cream mix into an ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer's instructions. Or, put into a freezer-proof container, cover and freeze for three to four hours, stirring halfway through. When the ice cream is soft but not fully frozen, add the chocolate chunks.

For extra chocolatey goodness, pour a thick, gooey chocolate sauce into the ice cream maker for the last minute of churning. Recipe serves 6.
