White Chocolate Ice Cream

white chocolate ice cream

I want to start by saying thank you for all the good wishes regarding my last post!  We are getting our act together over here and slowly sorting out the move details.  Luckily, the move itself probably won’t be too painful, as we really don’t have much big stuff to send back.  I’ll keep posting till we go, and I hope you’ll follow me back to New York!

OK, time to get back on topic–did I ever tell you about that one kilo bag of white chocolate I bought a few months back?  I probably did, as it was dumb purchase that I am continually kicking myself for.  I am determined to not waste it, but I can’t seem to use it up either.  It taunts me from the cupboard…in fact, I have a sneaking suspicion that it may be multiplying in the bag.

The days have suddenly gotten quite warm (and a little muggy, too) here in Sydney, so I thought maybe a white chocolate ice cream would kill two birds with one stone: use up some some of that stash, and beat the heat at the same time.  I found a recipe to almost exhaust the bag– the white chocolate ice cream from David Lebovitz’s The Perfect Scoop.  It uses a whopping 8 ounces of chocolate…that’s about double any other recipe I’ve seen.  With all that white chocolate, you can probably guess that it’s a pretty rich ice cream.  It’s quite dense, but silky smooth.  Although I’ve photographed it plain and simple here, it’s great with sliced strawberries, or if you are feeling naughty, a big splash of Kahlua poured over the top works, too.

If you have The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz, you can find the recipe there.  If you don’t, you can find a version with fresh ginger here on his site (omit the ginger and you’ll get the same recipe I’ve used).

One last thing…I cringe at the thought of using my blog as a pawn shop, but if anyone in Sydney is interested in purchasing a very gently used (gorgeous!) pistachio KitchenAid Artisan stand mixer or a Braun Multiquick stick blender with lots of attachments, shoot me an e-mail for the details.  I apologize.  I know it’s tacky, but these electronics won’t work back home (without a transformer, which I don’t trust and would rather not bother with).  Also, to buy them new, they are much more expensive here than in States, so if anyone wants a deal, I thought I’d throw it out there.

  1. I hope to be able to read you once you’re back in New York, Steph… and I wish I could take those appliances of your hands! LOL …but I guess beaming ’em up my way is out of the question, huh?
    I should be envious of the temp in Australia, but yet again… we are having an incredibly nice Fall here, though a bit cool for ice cream.
    Come to think of it… beam some up, along with the KitchenAid, and I’ll take it on slice of warm pie! (the ice cream, not the KitchenAid!)

  2. this looks so good. I ve never tried white chocolate ice cream. Pity I dont have an ice cream churner 😦

  3. Oooh, such a rich, luscious ice cream variety!!

    Again, wishing you luck with the upcoming move!! 🙂

  4. The ice cream looks and sounds delicious! I have a huge hunk of white chocolate that my mother palmed off on me. I’ve been trying to figure out what to do with mine too. since it is 83 degrees here today, I think ice cream might be in order! 😉

  5. YUM!!! I am SO making this ice cream!

  6. really beautiful. what sort of ice cream maker did you use?

  7. Maggie–Thanks! I use the ice cream attachment for my KitchenAid mixer.

  8. I love David’s book, it is such a treasure and I refer to it everytime I am thinking of making a cool dessert when entertaining.

    I am not an ice cream lover but I wish I could enjoy a scoop of what you have in the bowl 🙂

  9. I was obsessing about white chocolate ice cream a couple of months ago, but funnily enough I didn’t even think to look in the Perfect Scoop, my favorite ice cream book. DUH! I can’t wait to try this recipe! A Kahlua float sounds like the way to go…LOL! 😉

  10. Looks awesome. I have a lot of white chocolate that I need to get rid of and I just happen to have that book so Im on it.

  11. I have that book, so will have to try that ice-cream out! If I was in Sydney I would be more than happy to take your kitchen aid off your hands! :0)

  12. This looks delicious, I’m a sucker for white chocolate!

  13. The ice cream looks divine! Too much chocolate- what a nice problem to have!

  14. Ohhhh white chocolate…. LUVVVV it….

    thanks for the heads up for this recipe, looks divine… I’ve just got to go try it….


  15. I love white chocolate! I bet this ice cream would be delicious with any fruit and any icing…

  16. oh, funny, I just saw your mixer ad on Gumtree! and now find out it is you… lolz.

  17. My boyfriend just bought me a Cuisinart ice cream maker! It’s time for me to get that book and make some of this fabulous ice cream!

  18. Just stumbled on your beautiful blog and great food! Too bad that you’d be leaving ‘down-under’ and go back to NY…But, we’ll still check your posts from the northern hemisphere. I’d also like to invite you to post some of your beautiful cake creations here: http://www.cakesplace.com

    Good in luck in your new (or old) place!

  19. Personally I can’t imagine having too much white chocolate (I could use up that bag for you in a moment ^__^) but this sounds SO good.

    Good luck with the move!

  20. great food! super yummy! now if i could just get my gf to see this recipe LOL
