Raffaello ice cream tips and trivia

  • Use a high quality white chocolate. For example, the white chocolate ("White Vanilla") from Vivani scored highly in the test magazine Chclt.net very well. But of course, other brands go as well. Make sure that the cocoa butter content is high and not too many ingredients are listed. In addition, if, then of course real vanilla should be included.
  • Many recipes freeze the raffaellos before they are hacked. I have with it no good experiences and find it easier to cut the raffaellos when they are at room temperature. Even if then a little of the cream remains on the cutting board.
  • At Coconut milk you should make sure that at least 80% Coconut is contained. Furthermore, no stabilizers or emulsifiers should have been used. 2020 Öko-Test tested various suppliers. For example, the coconut milk from dm, Dennree and Bio Gourmet scored "very good".
  • Raffaello comes from Italy and consists of a Almond, which is used by a Coconut cream wrapped in a hollow wafer ball and covered with Coconut flakes is covered. The Invention of the Raffaello balls is attributed to the Ferrero company. The idea for the Raffaello balls is said to have originated in the 1990s years ago, when the Ferrero company was looking for a new candy that could repeat the success of Ferrero Rocher chocolates, and it succeeded.
If you have raffaellos left over, you can use them to decorate the ice cream. Coconut flakes also do well.
