A light and creamy Tiramisu Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips that tastes like the real tiramisu dessert, only without the ladyfinger cookies, except its frozen.
Tiramisu is our all time favorite dessert! It’s a coffee flavored dessert with a soft cookie and creamy mascarpone filling and cocoa sprinkled on top. A popular Italian dessert that has become a staple dish in every Italian restaurant.
Well, I’ve been dying to make this into an ice cream for the longest time and now I have! When I made this Tiramisu Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips for the first time, not only was it really good, but it actually tastes like the real thing!
Which brings me to why I am so excited to share this recipe with you. Nothing beats the flavor and texture of homemade ice cream or gelato. And if you can make your favorite flavor, and one you absolutely love into an ice cream or gelato – well… it’s even better!
The method is so simple, you only need to heat up some milk and cream, then add in a creamy egg yolk mixture made with sugar and mascarpone cheese. Once the custard cools, just add it to your ice cream maker and it’s done.
It was so good, it was addicting. I know, because it was gone in one day. Next time, I will have to double my batch.
