I know, I know, it’s not Christmas. It’s not your boy friend’s birthday either. These are the special occasions you would make rum, raisin and chocolate ice cream for. But for me every day is special. And every day is an occasion to celebrate. So this time I’m making this absolutely tempting, adult ice cream.
This version of rum, raisin and chocolate ice cream is easy, it doesn’t require an ice cream churner, just refrigeration, it’s soft and creamy and filled with plump, juicy, well actually drunk in rum raisins that will have who ever eats it saying- I want more!
Now you can make this ice cream too and have your partner licking their fingers and yours as well!
This ice cream is inspired by Jessica’s Sweetest Menu.
Here is the recipe-
Rum, raisin and chocolate ice cream
160 gms / 1 cup raisins
125 ml/ 1/2 cup rum
500 gms/ 2 cups cream
300 gms/ 1 cup condensed milk
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
50 gms dark chocolate chopped into small pieces
1 Soak the raisins in the rum over a period of 1 to 2 days.
2 Stir the cocoa powder into the condensed milk in a large bowl until the cocoa powder blends in.
3 Whip the cream. Pour into the bowl with condensed milk and cocoa powder mixture, and gently mix it. Add the rum soaked raisins and the chopped dark chocolate pieces and gently mix again.
4 Put it in an airtight container and put it in the coldest part of your freezer, away from the door, so that when you open the freezer door, warm air doesn’t affect it. You may also want to wrap the container in a plastic bag so that the ice cream doesn’t absorb smells from other foods in the freezer.
5 Every 1 1/2 to 2 hours, as the sides begin to freeze, with a spoon, beat the ice cream. Do this thrice before the ice cream sets.
