maple ice cream is also up there. With only four ingredients, this gelato has a deep and intense chocolate flavor. That's owed in large part to the high quality of cocoa I used, Guittard. I had my doubts because the unfrozen gelato tasted an awful lot like pudding, but once it was frozen and set up it was like rich chocolate ice cream. Is it my favorite recipe? No, that distinction still belongs to Ben & Jerry's, but this is still excellent and easier.
strawberry gelato I tried a couple months ago. That wasn't a problem here. Try this one when your next chocolate craving hits.
3 cups milk
¾ cup sugar
2 tbsp. cornstarch
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa
1. Bring 2 cups of the milk to a simmer in a medium saucepan over medium heat, then remove from heat. Combine remaining 1 cup milk, sugar, cornstarch, and cocoa in a bowl, add to hot milk, and cook until sugar and cocoa dissolve.
2. Set aside to let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight. Process mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
