2. Chocolate ice cream cup

In the kitchen :

  • Dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa content)

At work !

Roughly chop the chocolate and carefully temper it in the microwave. To do this, place the chopped chocolate in a bowl, heat to around 34 ° C at 700 watts and stir every 20 seconds. After heating the chocolate, let it cool to around 31 ° C, stirring occasionally. Use a kitchen thermometer to check that the temperature is correct. The chocolate is then ready to be used. If you don’t have a microwave, you can also temper the chocolate in a double boiler.

Place the ice cubes in a dish and pour the tempered chocolate over them. Once it has dried, you can remove your edible ice cream mold from the ice cubes and use it for your dessert.
