"Stracciattella ice cream has fine bits of chocolate throughout, which results in a smooth texture with just the slightest crunch in every bite. I wanted something different from a vanilla based ice cream so I used a coffee based ice cream. It turned out so delicious I just had to share."

Step 1

Combine sugar, half and half, milk, and instant coffee or espresso granules until sugar is completely dissolved - can do this in a blender or by hand.

Step 2

When sugar has dissolved completely, add in the heavy cream and stir by hand till everything is combined thoroughly.

Step 3

Pour mixture into ice cream machine and churn according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Step 4

During the last 5 minutes of churning prepare chocolate to drizzle into ice cream.

Step 5

To prepare chocolate - melt in microwave in a small bowl from which you can pour it out in a thin stream into the ice cream.

Step 6

If chocolate is not able to stream when melted add in 1 tablespoon of butter to the chocolate and quickly give it a zap in the microwave to help incorporate it.

Step 7

If your chocolate is still not pourable repeat with remaining tablespoon of butter. By now it should not require anymore butter and should be able to pour in a thin stream easily.

Step 8

Pour chocolate in a thin stream into ice cream machine while it is still churning.

Step 9

It won't look like anything is happening right away but as it churns a bit more the chocolate breaks up and incorporates throughout the batter nicely.

Step 10

You can serve it soft style or freeze for at least 2 hours in an airtight container before enjoying.

Step 11

Note: Instant coffee granules are more bitter than espresso, so use your preferred type in this recipe.
