Tips for making cherry ice cream

  • Very well the cherry ice cream with chocolate combine. And that in all possible variations. Be it with Chocolate shavings in or on the ice or in combination with Chocolate ice cream. Do you want crunchy chocolate chips, then the Chocolate (70%)* Melt about 20 minutes before the end of freezing and cool to lukewarm. Just before completion, drip into the running ice cream machine. When making in the freezer, layer the liquid chocolate with the finished ice cream.
  • Should you really Chili fans then you can use the Chili of course also together with the cherries mix. Personally, that would be much too spicy. But there are different tastes.
  • If you want to make the cherry ice cream differently spicy for different foodies, you can use the cooked out Chili's in a pan until the water has evaporated and they lightly caramelised are and reach to the ice for individual sharpening.
  • I have for the decoration from a beautiful white paper (eg chocolates inner packaging are good here) small boxes folded (one bottom and one top per serving) and filled them with the ice cream. After this Instructions the boxes are really easy to fold.
