HOMEMADE BACI GELATO WITH CARAMELIZED HAZELNUTS

I can’t explain how good and simple this recipe is, please make it today, you will thank yourself tonight when you’ve finished dinner and you want something sweet and a summery treat! Baci Perugina Italian chocolates are nostalgic for me, grew up trying to read the love notes you get inside in Italiano. The gelato base is 3 ingredients and you fold your flavours in! Then freeze for 5 hours.

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 can condensed milk (sweetened)
  • 500ml 35% whipping cream – Harmony Organic Dairy!
  • tsp Real Vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup whole roasted hazelnuts (skins mostly to half off, when they are roasted the skins are off, when they are raw the skins are on)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • Baci Perugina Chocolates – 4-5 of them chopped (usually sell them at Longo’s or other Italian grocery stores)

Method:

Caramelize your hazelnuts
