Chino-Cream Recipe Flavors
All recipes are for 1 quart of liquids and are suited
for the Quick Freeze Bowl that makes 1½ quarts after allowing for expansion.
Double, triple or increase to accommodate your freezer capacity.
Basic recipe for all the
1 cup (250 ml) milk
½ (125 ml) cup sugar
2 cups (500 ml) cream
Warm the milk in a small
pan. Stir in Caffe D'Vita Instant Cappuccino. In a separate bowl, whisk
the eggs with the sugar. Slowly add the warm milk
and cappuccino mixture continuing to whisk.
(The best Ice Cream is made leaving the eggs raw. If you prefer not to use the eggs raw, continue below.)
Pour the mixture back in
the pan and heat slowly (DO NOT BOIL) until thickened, stirring
constantly (looks like very liquid pudding).
Let cool to room
temperature, add cream and the suggested ingredients. Pour into ice cream
freezer and follow manufacturer's instructions.
Do not add alcohol to the mix at first, as alcohol retards freezing. Stir
alcohol in after the recipe has begun thicken in the freezer.

Chocolate Truffle Spoons
1 lb. dark chocolate, chopped
16 oz. heavy cream
Place chopped chocolate in a large and wide, heatproof bowl; you don't want
to use a deep one because it will take longer for the chocolate to melt.
In a large, deep, heavy bottomed pan, on medium-low heat, bring heavy cream
to a boil. Stir often, making sure it does not burn.
Let the cream sit a few minutes to cool slightly. Pour the hot cream all over
the chopped chocolate all at once. Never add cold liquids to the chocolate as it
will seize and lump. The cream must cover all of it and will melt the chocolate.
Mash the large pieces down into the cream with a wire whisk. DO NOT STIR. The
mixture should sit for 2 to 4 minutes until the chocolate starts to melt.
When the chocolate has begun melting, stir the ingredients together with a
heatproof rubber spatula. Begin stirring in the center and gradually widen it
towards the edges of the bowl to pull in more chocolate. Do not want to whip air
into it, but mix it thoroughly until combined. If the chocolate doesn't melt,
keep stirring from the center out. If you use an immersion blender, it must be
fully submerged. Don't stir too much as it can curdle. If you do, get air
bubbles strain it through a fine mesh strainer when done.
You will have a smooth, glossy liquid called ganache. At this point, add in
liqueurs and other liquid flavorings, all at room temperature, and
stir gently to incorporate.
Place a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the ganache to
keep a film from forming. Set aside for an hour to cool until thickened.
Take plastic spoon and scoop into ganache. Then dip into
chocolate spoon mixture. Lay on
wax paper and let completely cool before wrapping individually.
12 ounces chocolate chips or white chocolate chips
heavy duty plastic spoons (clear looks the best)
2 tsp shortening (optional)
Cover two cookie sheets with waxed paper. Microwave one cup of
chocolate chips, in a tall narrow bowl or cup, at 50% power for 1 minute.
Stir and continue microwaving at 50%, stirring every 15 seconds until chocolate
is melted and smooth. Do not over cook. IF you need to thin the
chocolate, add 1 tsp shortening per cup of chips and stir till mixed.
Dip the plastic spoon in the chocolate. Remove the excess chocolate by
tapping gently on the side of the container.
It may be necessary to microwave again if it gets too cold to use.
Repeat this process with the second cup of chips.
Cool thoroughly before wrapping spoons in cellophane.
