Summer is coming, and even though it took quite a while, it’s better late than never. And with summer comes warm weather, unless you’re reading this in Australia, and with warm comes cold food. And the cold food that reigns over all the others is GELATO (or ICE CREAM)!

I wouldn’t make a blog about going out and buying gelato; instead, we’re making it. If you are too lazy to go to the store (but somehow have all the ingredients and energy to make this ice cream) or want to bond with your kids or friends, why not make HOMEMADE ice cream?

This gelato flavor is called BACIO; if you’ve never tried Bacio and are a hazelnut and chocolate lover, you haven’t lived your best life.

Bacio is an Italian chocolate/hazelnut candy and gelato that my kids go crazy for, especially my oldest, Clelia.

It is creamy, soft, and with a surprise crunch of hazelnut—it is fantastic. But if you don’t plan on tasting this heaven on earth anytime soon, I suggest making this and tasting the second-best thing.

Bacio gelato is a delightful Italian gelato (ice cream) with rich and indulgent chocolate and hazelnut flavors. "Bacio" means "kiss" in Italian, and this gelato is named after the iconic Baci Perugina chocolate candies, which consist of a chocolate shell filled with a creamy hazelnut center.



    • Blend 100g (3/4 cup) of hazelnuts with 50g (1/4 cup) of sugar in a mixer until they become an oil-creamy compound.
    • Melt the milk chocolate in the warm milk and let it cool down into cream.
    • Semi-Whip the cream.
    • Add the condensed milk with movements from the bottom upwards.
    • Add hazelnut paste and chopped hazelnuts (50g =1/3 cup).
    • Add the milk chocolate cream (always with movements from bottom to top).
    • Pour the mixture into a cold steel bowl (previously put the bowl in the freezer).
    • Put in freezer for 6 hours.
    • And then scoop them into some lovely bowls!
