Yields6 ServingsPrep Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr

This is a fun and adventurous gelato flavor that uses the uniquely Italian amaretto cookie, as well as bittersweet chocolate.

 5 oz Bittersweet dark chocolate
 7 oz Milk
 7 oz Heavy cream
 4 oz Sugar
 ¼ tsp Vanilla extract
 2 tbsp Amaretto liqueur
 Amaretti cookies

Chop the chocolate into pieces about the size of commercial chocolate chips and place in a large bowl


Heat the milk (7 oz) and sugar (4oz) in a medium sized saucepan, stirring until sugar is dissolved and it just begins to boil


Pour the hot milk over the chopped chocolate and whisk vigorously until all the chocolate is melted and you have a smooth shiny mixture


Whisk in the heavy cream (7 oz) and the vanilla. Cool


When cool, pour mixture into your gelato/ice cream machine and follow the instructions for your particular machine.


Just before removing from gelato machine, as mixture is almost done, add the broken amaretti cookies and the amaretto and allow it to be incorporated into the gelato.


Tip: If you're in a hurry you can cool the mixture by placing the bowl over another bowl filled with ice. Stir continuously until your gelato mixture is cool enough to pour into the gelato freezer.
