Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 tablespoons instant coffee granules
2 cups milk
1 tsp corn starch
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 oz fine quality bittersweet chocolate (finely chopped)*

Get ready a large bowl full of ice cold water.

Stir together 1/4 of the milk and the cornstarch in a measuring cup and let it sit while you whisk together sugar, cocao and remaining milk in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil while continuing to stir and add in coffee granules.

Add the cornstarch/milk mixure to the saucepan and bring to a boil again. Immediately remove from heat.

Stir the mixture and add vanilla and half of the chocolate - keep whisking!

Place saucepan in that bowl of ice water and whisk away! Place the mocha mixture in a container and put in fridge overnight.

The next day, make your icecream according to your icecream maker's instructions. Add the remaining chocolate pieces about 5 minutes before the mixture is done churning.

I bought an icecream maker this summer. If you like icecream, buy one for yourself - it's totally worth it.

*I used a dark chocolate bar with toasted hazlenuts for the chocolate chunks in the icecream. Don't use this kind for the melting, but as chunks, it was awesome!
