Chocolate Spumone - Spumone Al Cioccolato

Spumone is an Italian ice cream, that is just delicious! Another wonderful recipe from one of my favorites cooking show hosts, Mary Ann Esposito. Mary Ann says: Perugina semisweet chocolate is used in this recipe for spumone, a refreshing end to a dinner party. Make it ahead and freeze it. Team it with fresh raspberries, strawberries, or make a coulis, a fruit sauce to drizzle on the plate for an artistic presentation. It will look like you have been in the kitchen all day! PLEASE NOTE: Preparation time does NOT include minimum 2 hour chilling time. Also, remember to take it out 30 minutes before serving.

ingredients

  • 7 ounces good quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 cups whipping cream (1 pint)
  • 3 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 ounces good quality white chocolate, coarsely chopped

directions

  • Line a 10x4x2 1/2" loaf pan with plastic wrap, leaving a 1" overhang. Set aside.
  • Put the semisweet chocolate in a saucepan. Add the water, and melt the chocolate over very low heat, stirring frequently until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whip the cream with 2 tablespoons of the sugar, with an electric mixer, until stiff. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whip the egg yolks with the remaining sugar until the mixture is thick and lemon colored.
  • Fold the egg mixture into the melted chocolate, then fold the chocolate mixture into the whipped cream, along with the chopped white chocolate.
  • Spread the mixture evenly into the loaf pan, and bring the overhanging plastic wrap over the top to cover the pan.
  • Cover the top tightly with a sheet of aluminum foil, and freeze for at least 2 hours, or for up to a month.
  • About 30 minutes before serving remove the foil, unwrap the plastic wrap from the top, and unmold the spumone onto a decorative dish, gently pulling away the plastic wrap.
  • Use a knife dipped in ice water to make clean slices.
  • For an elegant presentation, cut the slices on the diagonal, and stand the spumone on edge, to create a vertical look. Serve as is or with chocolate sauce or a raspberry coulis.

    Linda, you are a lifesaver! I have been looking for a Spumone recipe, as I love Italian ice cream. This isn't the traditional Spumone, but let me tell you something, It's DELICIOUS!!! My DS and his girlfriend and I indulged after a nice meal of Spaghetti and Meatballs and this was a happy ending for all of us! Creamy, wonderfully flavored and just plain delicious! Thank you so much for sharing!
