Very easy to prepare at home. It tastes better than most of the supermarket stuff and saves tons of money as well. Easily modified to your taste. Have this ready in the freezer for unexpected guests! Try substituting condensed milk for the honey for a less sweet version. This recipe contains raw eggs. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and the infirm do not consume raw eggs.

  • Spread nuts on a baking sheet and toast in preheated oven, watching carefully, until golden, about 10 minutes. Rub the skins from the toasted nuts using a tea towel, then coarsely chop.

  • Line a baking sheet with foil. Spread chopped nuts evenly on foil. Melt chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. Pour chocolate evenly over nuts. Place in freezer until firm. Then break into bite-size chunks.

  • Line a 8x8 inch dish with foil.

  • In a small bowl, beat egg yolks until light yellow. Beat in honey. In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff. In a third bowl, beat cream with vanilla until stiff. Fold cream into egg whites, then fold egg yolks into cream mixture. Fold in chocolate covered nuts, then pour into prepared pan.

  • Freeze 8 hours or overnight until firm. To serve, invert onto a platter, remove foil and slice.

WOW!! This ice cream was out of this world!! I made it using my ice cream maker and between the combination of whipped egg whites and aeration from the ice cream maker it turned it to be quite light in texture. If you like denser ice cream and will be using an ice cream maker I would not recommend whipping the egg whites. In fact I suspect you could even leave the egg whites out but try at your own risk. The flavor was excellent. The honey taste was subtle and if I made it again I would probably use even a little more than the recipe calls for to give it a stronger honey taste. The chocolate covered hazelnuts were excellent. Of the 20 or so ice creams and sorbets that I've made this is definitely my favorite. Read More

This was nice. The texture is fantastic - really light and delicious and with a quite pronounced honey flavour. However you can really taste the raw egg in this recipe which I find a bit gross. I'd like to tinker with it but wouldn't make it as is again. Read More
