Melted the chocolate in a double boiler before whisking in the other ingredients. Was still mostly liquid after running through the ice cream maker, but I put it in the freezer ... and it came out beautifully! Dense, creamy, easy to serve. I was shocked, expected a brick. Great flavor. All the fat is in the chocolate, which might be better than dairy fats (stearic acid is neutral on cholesterol). Will do again with darker chocolate and a touch less sugar.
Chocolate Malt Ice Cream
From EatingWell: August/September 2006
Malted-milk powder and powdered nonfat dry milk add most of the body to this unbelievably creamy but low-fat ice cream. Stir in 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips or crushed chocolate wafer cookies for a chocolate-lover's delight.
5 Reviews for Chocolate Malt Ice Cream
Easy and tasty. Dense chocolate flavor. The slight graininess of finished ice cream is from the malt powder not the chocolate.
I was very excited about making this recipe, then took a second look at the serving size...1/4 cup and 134 calories? That is hardly low-calorie! In fact this recipe has as many or more calories than the average serving of Ben and Jerry's (this recipe having 270 per 1/2 cup and most B&J flavors having 250-260.) What a scam. This recipe is incredibly misleading...sure it's "low" in fat but it is not low-calorie by any means. Shame on you Eating Well!
This was quite possibly the best homemade ice cream I've ever made! The texture was a little grainy because the chocolate did not melt smoothly, however it was not bad. Ice cream tasted sinfully good, was a rich and decadent desert. Will definitely make this again!! Thanks EatingWell.
Great flavor from the malt powder, but couldn't get the chocolate to melt completely, which gave the final product an unpleasant grainy texture. Will try again and melt the chocolate on it's own before adding to hot milk.
