READY IN: 12hrs 35mins


  • 34
    cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 34
    cup sugar
  • 1
    dash sea salt
  • 1
    cup milk
  • 2
    eggs, whisked
  • 14

    biscotti, crushed, in the Italian traditional style (flavored with almonds, walnuts, and anise)


  • In a heavy sauce pan, whisk together the cocoa, sugar and salt.
  • Whisk in milk, Frangelico, and eggs.
  • Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until steaming hot and starting to thicken, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Whisk in cream and remove from heat.
  • Transfer into your freezing container (for a traditional ice cream maker) or into a container with a spout (for a modern ice cream maker where the freezer requires freezing and no outside salt/ice is used in the freezing process) and chill in refrigerator for 4 hours.
  • When ready to freeze, if using an ice cream maker, follow your manufacturer's directions.
  • Add crushed biscotti during the final 10 minutes of churning in the freezer or ice cream maker.
  • Garnish with additional biscotti.
