Method

  1. Tip the cream and milk into a saucepan, then bring to the boil. Beat the yolks and Horlicks together in a bowl, pour over the hot cream, then continue beating until everything is combined. Tip the mixture back into the pan, then cook on a low heat for 3-4 mins, stirring continuously until the consistency of thin custard. Remove from the heat. Stir in the chocolate until melted, stir in the Irish cream liqueur, then chill.
  2. Once the custard has cooled, churn it in an ice-cream machine until frozen. If you don’t have a machine, place the custard in a bowl in the freezer. Freeze until the sides become icy, then beat with a whisk. Repeat the process 3 more times until you have smooth ice cream. Ice cream can now be frozen for up to 2 weeks. Serve in balls with Maltesers crumbled over, if you like.

I used one tbs of whiskey instead of the Irish cream and 3 eggs rather than the suggested six. The texture of the ice cream was superb. However I found the taste/flavour distinctly underwhelming.Unless you have a nostalgic longing to recreate childhood memories of a malt drink in a frozen form I would not bother with this recipe.

Just recently bought an ice cream maker and having great fun trying different recipes, but, my machine says not to give young children and the elderley, ice cream made with eggs. So many recipes include eggs, your thoughts please !

As you have to cook it on the stove after adding the eggs I would think the eggs are " cooked". That's my opinion as I don't like to use raw eggs either. But I'm not an eggspert! ( sorry ! :-) )

Divine and silky smooth!( used an ice-cream maker). I used 4 egg yolks as it was all I had and it still turned out perfectly. I omitted the Bailey's as it was for kids and I added choc chips. Will be making regularly.

Loved this recipe, I do have an ice cream maker and it was beautiful. It is really worth buying good quality milk chocolate as this adds to the rich smooth texture.

FANTASTIC! I was a little generous with the baileys so that dominated the flavour a bit but still goooooorrrrgeous! I made without an ice-cream maker and had no problems, ice-cream had a really luxurious, creamy texture, yum! Will definately make again :)

Great recipe and a huge request. Easy to make and no problems with making without an ice cream maker. I added the irish cream at the wrong stage so maybe that is why I could not taste it. Making it again this Easter weekend by popular request and may try a bit more irish cream this time! Yum!!

i added the irish cream at the same time as the cream and milk

I am assuming it means Horlicks powder, and not made-up Horlicks? Can anyone confirm?
Also, would you add the liqueur at the same time as the chocolate chunks?

Does anyone know at which point you add the Baileys, or do we assume that when you heat the cream and milk it is also including the cream liqueur.

I am giving it 5 stars just for the recipe and will re rate once I have made it.
