Ingredients Of Choco bar Ice Cream 

  1.  Milk :-This is a milk based ice cream and no fresh cream or whipping cream used. The softness and texture of the ice cream bar depend on the type of milk you choose. If you select, full cream milk, you will get very soft one. But you can try with regular thin milk also, as I did today. 
  2. Sugar :- Regular table sugar is used. But before adding sugar, do taste milk powder and adjust to your taste.
  3. Milk powder - Milk powder to give richness and taste, but if using thick milk, you can reduce its amount.
  4. Corn flour - Corn flour is the thickening agent in this ice cream recipe. 
  5. Vanilla - Vanilla is used as a flavoring agent.
  6. Chocolate - Both milk chocolate and dark chocolate can be used. But before coating the ice cream bar, make sure the chocolate is smooth, loose and at room temperature.

Common Errors and how to correct them

  1. Lumps in the ice cream - This occurs when the stirring is not proper while and after the addition of corn flour. In this recipe, we mix corn flour in milk first , then mix with the hot boiling milk. The corn flour has a tendency to settle with time and if you have prepared corn flour before the milk come to a rolling boil, then stir it again before adding in the hot milk. Also remember to stir the mix while cooking and cooling.
  2. The Ice cream Mix burns :- This happens when we cook on high temperature and on thin bottomed pan. Milk solids burn very quickly on high temperature, making the ice cream tasteless and colorless. so always keep the pan on medium heat.
  3. Ice cream do not set :- This occurs when you cook the milk for more time. After the addition of cornflour, the milk will thicken faster. So you have to keep an eye on it and should stop cooking at the right consistency. Also when lumps are there, the ice won't set. So grind and sieve to correct it. 
  4. Chocolate isn't sticking to the ice cream bar - It happens when the ice cream bar is not set properly and also when the melted chocolate is thicker than necessary. So freeze the ice cream bar again, when set to perfection, dip in melted chocolate.
  5. Cracks on the choco bar - Two reasons for this cracks. First, the melted chocolate won't be at room temperature when you dip the ice cream bar. Second, the atmospheric temperature will high, so do not do in the afternoons. Try either in the early morning or in AC rooms.
