Easy Homemade Viennetta Recipe

The 80’s born Viennetta unites the smooth vanilla and the strong dark chocolate making it a timeless summer hit and a perfect companion for Dirty Dancing.


We’ve been missing this taste since we are on low sugar, no sugar diet so this summer we decided to make sugar free ice cream. In case someone isn’t into sugar free recipes  then there is always an option to pour ½ cup / 100g sugar into the cream instead of the sweetener and there we have the normal one instead of the sugar free version. Otherwise it’s a low carb ice cream that it’s even a suitable dessert for diabetics given that it’s consumed in moderation. It’s an enormous success and one of the biggest accomplishment among the sugar free desserts. Viennetta always tastes heavenly!

Kitchen Utensils:

  • 8½” x 3″ / 22cm x 8cm Tray to fill the ice cream in

Ingredients:

  • 3½ oz / 100g Dark chocolate
  • 1 oz / 25g Dark chocolate (sugar free)
  • 4 Egg whites
  • 2 cup / 500ml Whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons Agave or sweetener of choice
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 2 handfuls of nuts (optional)

How to make Viennetta:

  1. Start with melting 3.5 oz / 100g of chocolate as it needs the most time to prepare. Break chocolate into pieces and put it into a small saucepan. Place saucepan of chocolate on a slightly bigger saucepan of something water. Stir occasionally until melted completely.Melted-chocolate-gp-SunCakeMom
  2. Whilst we are waiting for the chocolate to melt prepare the baking paper where we plan to spread chocolate.Homemade-viennetta-recipe-process-2-SunCakeMom

  • Put egg whites in a different bowl. Be careful not to have anything else in the bowl because if we leave any drop of yolk in, the egg whites won’t raise the same way. Whisk until it’s hard.
