  • For the chocolate syrup:
  • 1/2 cup malted Ovaltine powder
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 ounces dark chocolate chopped
  • For the ice cream base:
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 tbsp plus 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp cream cheese
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp light corn syrup


  • In a small sauce pan bring the Ovaltine, coffee and sugar to a simmer. Take it off the heat and add the chocolate. Stir and set aside.
  • Take 2 tbsp of the milk and mix it in a small cup with the cornstarch, set aside.
  • Whisk the cream cheese and salt together until smooth. Add the chocolate mixture gradually and whisk until well combined.
  • Mix the rest of the milk, sugar, cream and corn syrup in a 4 quart pot. Bring to a boil and simmer for 4 minutes.
  • Take the pot from the heat and add the cornstarch mixture.
  • Bring the mixture back to a simmer and cook for about 2 more minutes and you see it getting a little thicker.
  • Slowly add the milk mixture to the chocolate, whisking to remove any lumps.
  • Transfer the completed mix to a one quart zip lock bag, seal and place in an ice water bath for about 30 minutes.
  • Pour the contents of the bag into the canister of your ice cream maker and follow the instructions. Allow at least 4 hours freezing time before eating.
