Recipe adapted from bittersweet by Alice Medrich
Sicilian Chocolate Gelato
3 Cups (720 ml) Whole Milk
2/3 Cup (130 g) Sugar
¾ Cup (180 ml) Premium Unsweetened Cocoa Powder (Natural or Dutch-Process)
1 ½ Tbsp Cornstarch
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 cups of the milk to a simmer over medium heat.
Meanwhile, whisk the remaining 1-cup milk with the sugar, cocoa, and cornstarch in another bowl. Scrape the cocoa mixture into the hot milk. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and bubbles a little at the edges. Then boil gently, stirring, for 2 minutes longer. Scrape into a bowl and let cool. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap placed directly against the surface and chill overnight.
Freeze according to the instructions of your ice-cream maker. Because the mixture is slightly thick to begin with, it may take less time than usual to freeze and thicken to the desired consistency.
