Ciao ragazzi! Stracciatella, one of the most famous Italian ice cream flavors! But did you know that this flavor actually hasn't been around that long? It originated in 1962 in Bergamo in Northern Italy in a café called 'La Marianna'. It was invented by Enrico Panattoni. When making ice cream, he added melted chocolate at the end. Contact with the cold ice caused the chocolate to solidify, breaking and mixing with the ice cream! So it is super easy to make. I would like to share the recipe for homemade Italian stracciatella ice cream.

What does the word straciatella actually mean? It means “shredded or torn”. The chocolate is, as it were, shredded in the vanilla ice cream. Dark chocolate is a favorite for this ice cream, but you could also make it with milk chocolate.

Here you will find the complete recipe with all the ingredients you need. I hope you enjoy preparing the dish below. Delicious Happen!
