how to eat my salted chocolate ice cream

My home made salted chocolate ice cream is THE best!
First, choose a couple of sexy long-stemmed glasses, and a little liqueur. Get a mixture of chocolate powder and sugar.

Wet the edges of the glasses with the liqueur.  Like this...
Then, drink the liqueur.  (This step is very important)

Next, roll the wet edges of the glasses in the powdered mix.
Note: this technique can be used with various flavours such as lemon juice & salt flakes, or sugar, or anything wet will stick anything powdery and dry.

Get the ice cream from the freezer.
Leave it on the bench for a few minutes so you can scoop it.

Fill the glasses and further prime by adding a teaspoon.

Re-locate to the new outdoor area and eat with much joy.
(recipe below)

200g dark chocolate, melted
1 egg
1 cup prepared custard
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla paste
1 cup cream
1 cup greek yoghurt

Blitz egg, custard, sugar, vanilla, chocolate & yoghurt until sugar is dissolved. Add cream and blitz until just combined. Process in machine until desired consistency.

(do a salted chocolate variation by changing the yoghurt to cream and adding 2 tsp flakey salt - or enough to taste)

Anyone for a scoop?
