 Mexican Mocha Smore Gelato

Author Notes: I love Mexican chocolate and smores so I adapted Chuck Kerber's Mexican chocolate gelato recipe by adding more coffee and adding toasted marshmallows.Jeff Goldberg

Serves: 6-8

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1.5 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 10-11 ounces bittersweet chocolate ( I prefer Ghirardelli dark)
  • 10-12 large marshmallows
  • 6 graham crackers cinnamon
  1. Bring milk, coffee, chili powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and chocolate to a simmer (about 180 degrees). Meanwhile, combine egg yolks and sugar in the bowl with a wooden spoon, blend until smooth.
  2. Temper the egg yolks: add the milk to the egg-yolk mixture in a slow but trickle-constant stream, whisking constantly until blended. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly (Do not boil). Pour in cream.
  3. Preheat broiler. Spread marshmallows evenly on the bottom of a medium-sized ovenproof pan. Broil until tops of marshmallows are nicely browned. Pour the warm gelato mixture over the browned marshmallows. Mix together with a whisk. I did not completely mix the marshmallows so that the final gelato will have a marshmallow swirl.
  4. Chill mixture for 1 hour before putting into ice cream machine. Freeze for 1 hour before serving.
  5. Lay graham crackers on an oven-safe tray, adding a couple of marshmallows to each one. Broil in oven until golden brown. Top with gelato for a delicious sundae.
