Who doesn't love gelato? Make it at home with this incredible Italian recipe!
First place a small frying pan on a medium heat and add the icing sugar and hazelnuts. Stir so that the nuts become coated in the icing sugar.
Heat for 5-10 minutes (moving the pan around every few minutes to make sure the nuts don’t catch or burn) until the icing sugar coats the hazelnuts and they start to go golden and caramelised. Once golden place in a pestle and mortar and lightly bash into medium pieces. Leave to one side.
Whisk the double cream, condensed milk and vanilla extract together - this forms the base of any icecream flavour you want to make at home. Do not over beat. Whip in the cocoa powder, and then fold in most of the chopped baci and most of the hazelnuts (saving some for decorating on top)
Place in a freezable dish and top with the remaining hazelnuts, chopped and sliced baci and dust with a little cocoa powder to finish.
Freeze for at least 5 hours.
