Chocolate Gelato. These two words possess the power to make my heart race and my face radiate with excitement. If you can’t tell yet, I have a tendency to dabble in the area of sweet treats quite frequently, and I must confess that this gelato has to be one of my favorite recipes so far. The texture of this gelato was almost identical to what John and I ate everyday when we were in Italy. Out of all the flavors we tried, chocolate was the flavor that most often attended my palate. I feel like ice cream is something everyone should make at least once in their life. I remember when I was younger my dad and I would make vanilla ice cream at home. We had this old ice cream maker that we had to fill with a lot of ice and plenty of salt. Making ice cream was quite the production, but boy did my dad and I enjoy eating our finished project! As you can see, I have a lot of positive memories attached to ice cream. Does ice cream bring back any special memories for you?
Gelato is an Italian style ice cream that is bursting with flavor, yet widely creamy when served. I love that gelato is so dense when compared to traditional ice cream. In order to make gelato, you actually need a gelato making machine. I currently only own an ice cream maker, so while I cannot call this an “authentic gelato,” I can promise you that it tastes almost exactly like the real thing.
