Gianduja, Wafer and Hazelnut Ice Cream - Rocher Ice Cream with Thermomix

Are you looking for the Rocher Ice Cream recipe? Would you like to eat the Ferrero Rocher taste in an ice cream? Here it is the recipe!

The ingredients of this recipe are those ones always present in ice creams like milk, cream, sugar and a thickener which is agar-agar here, a natural thickener extracted from a seaweed. There are then the wafer, the hazelnut flavour and the chocolate, the three main flavours of the famous Ferrero chocolate.

These Ferrero chocolates remind me of Christmas because at my husband's home during Christmas holidays (15 days..!) there are many packs of Rocher that goes in and out until they are empty! A deli for your mouth and a cross for your shape! :-(

As I often say, if you decide to allow yourself a sin of gluttony, you must do it well....So why don't you combine the delicacy of that small and crunchy chocolate ball and the freshness of a cake to eat in summer too? (or in winter....:-P) Something like and ice cream?

Maybe this was Stefania Bagnoli's idea who has sent me the recipe and writes: "I made the Rocher ice cream and it was yummy! I always make an hazelnut and Rocher Ice cream log". Here it is her picture!
