A light and creamy Tiramisu Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips that tastes like the real tiramisu dessert, only it is made without the ladyfinger cookies, and it’s a frozen treat!

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.

The mini chocolate chips are thrown into the ice cream maker during the last 3 to 5 minutes, just before it’s completely done.  I love the texture the mini chocolate chips adds to this ice cream, just like it does to our all time favorite dessert – our Best Tiramisu.

 

This tiramisu ice cream with chocolate chips was so good, it was addicting.  I know, because it was gone in one day!  Next time, I will have to double my batch.

 You’ll just have to try it yourself … it is totally AMAZING!

 

Ingredients for Tiramisu Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips:

Directions:

Using a small saucepan, heat milk and heavy cream on low heat.  Add in the vanilla and stir occasionally allowing the mixture to heat through. Do Not bring it to a boil. Turn off heat.

In the meantime, in a small bowl, whisk egg yolk and sugar to a creamy consistency. Add mascarpone cheese to it and whisk again.

Slowly  pour about 1/4 cup of hot milk in to the egg yolk mixture while whisking simultaneously.  Then slowly pour egg yolk mixture back into the hot milk pan and whisk again.

Turn heat back on and cook the mixture on lowest heat, stirring constantly, for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the custard slightly thickens.  Stirring with a wooden spoon,  the custard will stick to the back of the wooden spoon when ready.  Be careful not bring to a boil or the yolk will curdle.

Pour the mixture into a container or a bowl, and put it on an ice bath and place it in your refrigerator for about an hour to cool completely, or refrigerate overnight.  In the meantime, make a small cup of espresso and set it aside to cool.

Once the mixture is completely chilled,  add coffee powder and espresso to the custard mixture and pour it in your ice cream maker and follow directions according to the manufacture’s instructions.

Finally, in the last 3 minutes while the ice cream is churning, add in the mini chocolate chips.  If your machine does not have a spout to pour in the chips, you can fold in the chips with a spatula.

Transfer the ice cream to a container and freeze for an hour before serving.  When ready to serve, scoop into individual bowls and serve with one or two dark chocolate rolled wafers.

Yields: 1.5 quarts

    Ice cream is my number 1 favorite dessert of all time and this one looks like a winner. I love the elegance of it, yet it looks so easy to make. I think my next kitchen purchase will be an ice cream maker and this will be the first recipe I try.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Enjoy your weekend!
