Salted Dark Chocolate and Cherry


  • HIJINX ice cream mix
  • 1 ½ cups half & half or water*
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup cherries, pitted
  • ¼ cup brandy/orange juice
Note: For a lighter version use water. For a creamier version use half  & half.


    1. Add ½ the cherries, brandy/orange juice and sugar into saucepan and bring to boil. Simmer for 10 minutes or until the cherries release juices and the juices thicken enough to coat the back of a spoon. Your cherry compote is ready!

    2. Next, warm the half & half, cocoa powder and salt over medium heat or microwave for 30 - 60 seconds (do not boil). Make sure the cocoa powder and salt has fully dissolved.

    3. Using a blender, combine 1 packet of HIJINX ice cream mix with the above mixture. Blend for one minute or until thoroughly combined.

    4. Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes on your counter.

    5. Transfer to a freezer-safe container with an airtight lid.

    6. Freeze for 3-6 hours. Enjoy!
