Espresso Chip Gelato

  • Active Time 20m
  • Total Time 2h 50m

Makes about 1 quart, serves 4


  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 8 large egg yolks
  • 1/3 cup light corn syrup
  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup whipping cream
  • 5 tablespoons instant coffee powder

  • 8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped


Stir the sugar, egg yolks and corn syrup in a medium bowl to blend. Combine the milk, cream and coffee powder in a heavy medium saucepan. Bring the milk mixture just to a simmer. Gradually stir the milk mixture into the yolk mixture. Return the mixture to a saucepan.

Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, stir the mixture over medium-low heat until the custard thickens and leaves path on the back of a spatula when a finger is drawn across, about 10 minutes (do not boil). Strain through fine-mesh sieve if necessary. Transfer the custard to bowl. Cover and refrigerate until cold.

Process the custard in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Mix in the chopped chocolate. Transfer the ice cream to container and freeze. Scoop the ice cream into bowl and serve.
