Tiramisu Ice Cream

My all time favorite dessert turned into an ice cream. Needless to say when I saw this ice cream I was quite intrigued. The flavor of this ice cream was wonderful. If the texture wasn’t creamy you would probably think you were eating a piece of tiramisu. This was the first time I made a ripple and I thought it turned out beautifully. tiramsu-ice-cream

Tiramisu Ice Cream
for the ice cream:

2 Cups mascarpone cheese
1 Cup half and half
2/3 Cup sugar
Pinch of salt
1/4 Cup coffee-flavored liqueur (I used tia maria)
3 Tbsp brandy or dark rum

for the mocha ripple:
1/2 Cup sugar
1/3 Cup light corn syrup
1/2 Cup strongly brewed espresso
6 Tbsp dutch-process cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a blender or food processor, puree the mascarpone, half-and-half, sugar, salt, liqueur, and brandy until smooth. Chill several hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

To make the mocha ripple, whisk together the sugar, corn syrup, espresso, and cocoa powder in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium heat, whisking constantly, until the mixture begins to bubble at the edges. Continue to whisk until it just comes to a low boil. Cook for one minute, whisking frequently. Remove from the heat, stir in the vanilla, and let cool. Chill in the regrigerator before using. Mocha ripple can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

Freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. As you remove the ice cream from the machine, alternate layers of mocha ripple with ice cream in the storage container starting with the mocha ripple.  Do not try and smooth the mocha ripple as the ice cream may become muddy.
