TWD - Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream


This week’s TWD recipe is Chocolate Ganache Ice –Cream and was chosen by Katrina of Baking and Boys. This ice cream was very easy to make – basically you made chocolate ganache, then made custard, combined the two, chilled and then churned in the ice cream maker. I used energy chocolate (which is about 50% cocoa butter I think) which resulted in a rather mild chocolate flavour. But the ice-cream was lovely and creamy. My in laws are staying at the moment and we had the ice-cream for pudding last night with some little banana puddings I quickly whipped up. The combination of banana and chocolate was delicious. The puddings were very easy to make and the recipe is below.

I just hit my head on the screen trying to steal that pudding and ice cream. That sounds sooooo heavenly right now! Things are still their usual crazy around here, and I can't even remember now if I emailed you back a little while ago and I hate that I can't remember. Anyway, I wanted to stop by and say hello to you while I was thinking of you (and had a hand to type with LOL!). Give sweet Harry a little squeeze for me!
