Homemade Nutella Ice Cream with Hazelnuts


  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar, plus 1/4 cup
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, whole nuts or crushed 
Method :
1. In a saucepan combine the milk, cream, and 1/2 cup sugar over medium heat. Cook until the sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
2. in a medium bowl whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar using an electric mixer until the eggs have become thick and pale yellow, about 4 minutes.
3. Pour 1/2 cup of the warm milk and cream mixture into the egg mixture and stir. Add this mixture back into the saucepan. Cook over very low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture becomes thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, about 7 to 10 minutes.
4. Place a strainer over a medium bowl and pour the warm custard mixture through the strainer.
5. Stir in the vanilla and Nutella until completely dissolved.
6. Cool off and chill the mixture completely in the fridge before pouring into an ice cream maker to churn.  Once it is done with churning freeze in the freezer before serving.
7. To serve, scoop the ice cream into serving bowls and top with hazelnuts.
