This is a great dessert to finish a festive meal, and one I tend to serve in winter when there are not as many fresh fruits around.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
5 large egg yolks
145g caster sugar
500ml milk
120g dark chocolate, chopped
5 slices see method for ingredients
375ml cream, whipped until firm
1 1/2 tablespoons cointreau

Method

  1. Place a 2 litre mould in the freezer to chill.
  2. Using electric beaters, beat the egg yolks and sugar in a large heatproof bowl until the mixture forms a ribbon.
  3. Meanwhile, bring the milk to the boil in a saucepan. Pour the hot milk onto the egg-yolk mixture and whisk well. Return the mixture to the pan and, using a wooden spatula, stir over medium heat until the custard thickens slightly and lightly coats the back of the spoon. Don’t allow the custard to boil as it will curdle. Remove from the heat, strain into a bowl and whisk in the chocolate until melted. Set aside to cool.
  4. Dice two of the glacé orange slices and cut the other three in half.
  5. Stir the whipped cream into the chocolate mixture and pour the mixture into an ice cream maker. Churn until the ice cream is quite firm. Add the Cointreau and churn until firm.
  6. Transfer the ice cream to the chilled mould, sprinkling in the diced glacé orange pieces as you fill the mould. Place the ice cream in the freezer to set for at least 3–4 hours.
  7. Carefully unmould the ice cream onto a dish or scoop it into glasses. Garnish with the glacé orange halves.
