Sometimes our quest for new flavors and combinations blinds us to what is right in front of us. The idea of Chai and dark chocolate was spur of the moment decision while browsing through tea last week. It seemed like a nice fall, warming (yet obviously cooling) flavor that offered the comfort of simplicity and well, chocolate. I also seem to subconsciously create flavors based on the ingredients ability to provide alliteration in the title. So, I snatched up this Masala Chai mix and grabbed a couple of super dark chocolate bars and was off.
The Masala chai is steeped in our sweet cream base, until infused into the ice cream. The tea is strained out after the hot steep with an ultra fine mesh strainer.
The chocolate I chose for this flavor is a super dark organic chocolate bar from Equal Exchange. It’s broken into jagged pieces and thrown into the ice cream at the end of the churn.
The scoop is a delicately spiced Masala Chai ice cream filled with chunks of dark, dark chocolate. Perfect for a fall night.
