  • 2 tsp Gelatine powder, Use Agar agar for vegan option
  • 30 grams raw sugar, Or substitute for your prefered sweetner
  • 20 grams arrowroot starch

Chocolate Glaze

  • 300 grams Lindt Dark Chocolate, Or other dairy free chocolate
  • 60 grams coconut oil

  • 12 Posical sticks or Ice block moulds, (if you don't have moulds you can use a heart shaped cookie cutter)
  • 1-2 Large baking Tray Lined with Baking paper or ThermoMat

Recipe's preparation

    Ice Cream Base
  1. Clear a tray or two of your freezer to place the moulds (or tray). Use your Steamer Basket to Strain the Morello Cherries (keep the juice).
  2. Add all Ice Cream Base ingredients to the bowl (except the morello cherries), cook for 10 mins at 90 Deg on Speed 2.
  3. While the mixture is cooking, roughly chop the cherries and distribute evenly in the moulds, reserving a handful or two for the jelly. (If you do not have moulds pour into a lined slice pan)
  4. Pour the cooked mixture over the chopped cherries making sure to leave some space for the jelly to be added later (about 3/4 full) and place in the freezer to chill.
  5. Cherry Ripe Jelly
  6. Add all Cherry Ripe Jelly ingredients (except the reserved cherries) into the bowl and cook for 8 mins at 100 deg on speed 1.
  7. Add the reserved cherries and stir for 10 secs on (rev) sp 2.
  8. Allow jelly to cool to Approx. 50 deg or cooler before spooning onto the partially chilled moulds/tray. Use a skewer or paddle pop to gently create swirls or leave them as large jelly blob surprises. My little taste testers preferred larger bits of jelly rather than the swirls.
  9. Place moulds/tray back into the freezer to firm enough for chocolate dipping. The colder they are the quicker the Chocolate will set and the easier they are to handle (less mess).
  10. *If not using moulds

    Remove the frozen ice cream from the freezer and using a large heart shapped cookie cutter press out love heart shaped ice creams. Gently place the popsicle sticks through the centre of the hearts starting at the bottom point of the heart. Place onto ThermoMat (or lined baking tray) in freezer until needed.

    Note: To save time simply cut the ice cream into bars at this step
  11. Chocolate Glaze
  12. Add 300g Dairy Free Chocolate into bowl and grate on speed 9 for 10 secs.
  13. Add 60g Coconut Oil and a pinch of Salt and melt for 5 mins on 37 deg speed 2 or until completly melted. Don't be tempted to turn the heat up or you'll dry the chocolate out.
  14. Assembly
  15. Remove your Ice Creams one by one and coat in the mixture (I dip them into the thermie bowl) and allow the excess to drizzle off. Place each completed ice cream back onto the ThermoMat or Lined Baking tray to chill in the freezer.
  16. For extra garnish you can sprinkle over toasted coconut flakes onto the wet glaze.
  17. Remove Ice Creams from freezer for a few mins before serving (if you can wait that long). Store in an air tight container until ready to eat.
