Salted Dark Chocolate and Cherry


  • HIJINX ice cream mix
  • 1 ½ cups half & half
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup cherries, pitted
  • ¼ cup brandy/orange juice


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

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

    6. After 30 minutes, gently stir in the cherry compote.

    7. Freeze for 3-6 hours. Enjoy!
