Prep time

Freezing Time




  • 🌰 1 cup hazelnuts

  • 🍫 1 cup dark chocolate, chopped

  • 🥛 2 cups whole milk

  • 🥄 1 cup heavy cream

  • 🍚 3/4 cup granulated sugar

  • 🥚 4 egg yolks

  • 🧂 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 🍦 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Spread the hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast them for about 10 minutes until fragrant and slightly golden. Allow them to cool, then rub them in a kitchen towel to remove the skin.
  • Blend the toasted hazelnuts in a food processor until they form a smooth paste. This may take a few minutes, so be patient.
  • In a medium saucepan, combine the whole milk and heavy cream. Heat over medium heat until just about to simmer, then remove from heat.
  • Add the chopped dark chocolate to the milk and cream mixture. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar and egg yolks until pale and thick.
  • Slowly pour a small amount of the hot milk mixture into the egg yolk mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from cooking. Gradually add more until well combined.
  • Return the mixture to the saucepan and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the custard thickens and coats the back of a spoon. Do not let it boil.
  • Stir in the hazelnut paste, vanilla extract, and salt into the custard. Pour the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean bowl to remove any lumps. Allow it to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Pour the chilled mixture into your Ninja Creami container and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for freezing and processing.
  • Once your gelato is ready, scoop it into bowls or cones. Enjoy the creamy, nutty, chocolatey goodness, and don’t forget to share your creation with friends and family!


  • Top with a drizzle of warm chocolate sauce and a sprinkle of chopped hazelnuts.
  • Serve with a side of fresh berries for a fruity contrast.
  • Pair with a shot of espresso for an Italian-inspired treat.
