I can’t have an ice cream week without incorporating something John likes in the mix. And in his opinion, I saved the best for last! The nice thing about replicating a recipe is that you have some free license to play around. I wanted it to taste as much like Haagen-Dazs as possible, but I also wanted to make sure there was a strong coffee flavor that John could enjoy!
I used pre-made coffee, rather than espresso powder or instant coffee for the recipe. It came out slightly more icy than the actual coffee. However, I think it really lent a truer flavor to the ice cream. It tasted like you had dove into a bowl of iced coffee goodness.
John doesn’t take kindly to stealing any of his coffee so, like the wonderful woman I am, I made him his coffee over the weekend. I woke up early, stuck it in the fridge to cool down, and while I was mixing it with some ice, snagged some for myself! Sneaky blogger girlfriend! I think he would agree it was worth the steal. He could hardly contain himself while I was busy taking these pictures!
Haagen-Daz’s Java Chip Ice Cream
Serves: 6 (1/2 cup)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 1/2 cups fat free half-and-half
1/2 cup premade vanilla coffee, cooled through
1/3 cup sugar
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small chunks
In a bowl, combine cream, half-and-half, coffee, and sugar. Follow your ice cream instructions to make soft-churned ice cream. Add chocolate and then transfer to an airtight container and freeze for at least 4 hours, until completely frozen through. Let the ice cream sit out for 3-7 minutes prior to serving for easy scooping!
