Luckily, I noticed the ice cream dripping away just as I was about to clear up, and managed to capture an ultra satisfying .gif of it!
Coffee Hazelnut Ice cream
adapted from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream (Base Recipe)
1/3 cup (2 oz / 55g) granulated sugar
2 tbsp corn syrup / golden syrup
3 tbsp powdered milk
2-3 tbsp instant coffee (depending on taste)
2 cups (500ml) milk (anything 1% or above)
1 cup (250 ml) light cream (aka single cream)
2 tbsp cornstarch
3 tbsp cream cheese (low fat is fine)
1 heaped tbsp hazelnut butter (no added salt or sugar)
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a large saucepan and whisk over a medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil, then turn the heat onto low.
Combine the cornstarch and 1/4 cup of the hot milk mixture in a small bowl, then add this back into the saucepan. Turn the heat up to medium-low and continue to whisk for 5 minutes.
In a large bowl, stir together the cream cheese and hazelnut butter. Whisk in 1/4 cup of the hot milk mixture until smooth, then whisk in the rest.
Pour the mixture into a jug and put it in the fridge / freezer until it is completely cool; or pour into a ziplock bag, seal it, then put into a bowl of water and ice until completely cool.
Pour into your ice cream maker, and freeze according to the manufacturers instructions. Transfer to a container and put in the freezer for a few hours until firm.

This looks totally amazing, even if its melty!
omg, i`m so happy i was able to find your blog! loving it ♥ & this ice cream is looking mighty awesome! 😀 will have to make!
This looks super delicious!
This looks and sounds soooooooooooo yummy. However, I’ve never heard of hazelnut butter. Is it just hazelnuts ground up to a paste? Or is it something you buy?
Exactly! Hazelnut butter is just toasted hazelnuts, ground into a paste while still warm (like any other nut butter), but I bought mine from whole foods 🙂
Can you use malted milk in place of the powdered milk?
I’m not sure, I’ve never used malted milk powder before, but I think it would give the ice cream a different taste. I’d say either leave the milk powder out (I just add it for a creamier texture when I use 1% milk), or replace it with 3 tbsp of light cream.
I used expresso powder in place of instant coffee. To me it had a richer taste.
Gif file is a very clever. I will be trying this and the recipe. Good job
What a combination of flavors. This ice cream sounds right up my alley! And I love that metal container you have the ice cream in!
Looking forward to making this. The “melty” photo’s made me want to lick the table!
Beautiful beautiful photos – I love the melting .gif! Ice cream is so hard to capture before it melts, but I guess photographers perks are to eat the leftovers 🙂
I want to dunk my face into that. Would that be too weird? Oh, who cares – we’re melting in the heat here in India too much to care. Some ice-cream-face-dunking might be all we need. 😀
These look delightful! I love the cups you put the ice cream in, just beautiful!
Wow, does this look good. Your site is gorgeous. I am going to add this to my Mouth Watering Mondays post this Monday. Come on by to see it as http://www.noshingwiththenolands.com Cheers, Tara

yummy combo, yummy pictures!
Oh my goodness this is the best ice cream I’ve ever made! So thankful I came across your blog, can’t wait to try more recipes! Just wondering, how many servings does this make? I’m thinking I may need to double it 🙂
Thanks for the feedback! 😀 haha, ONE SERVING..only joking, it makes probably about 6-8 servings
Oh man, clearly I am doing something wrong then! I only got 1..maybe 2 servings, how strange! Oh well, I guess it means I’ll just have to make it more and more until I perfect it 🙂
I really like the layout for the recipe. Maybe because I am designer my self but I really do think it’s cute. Great ideas here!
This looks soooooo good! Ice cream is a big hit in our home and we love coffee and hazelnuts! I´ll be fixing this! For sure! Cheers!
