Here are a few recipes I found for malt flavor ice cream

Milk Chocolate Malt Ice cream
Makes 1 quart

Ingredients
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
8 egg yolks
10 ounces white chocolate, broken or cut into small chunks
1/2 cup Horlicks malt powder

Method
1.. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the milk and cream and bring to a boil.

2. In a large stainless steel mixing bowl, whisk the egg yolks. Gradually pour the heated liquid into the bowl, whisking constantly. Return to the saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon.

3. Meanwhile, in a small stainless steel bowl or the top of a double boiler set over barely simmering water, melt the chocolate. Whisk into the heated milk mixture. Remove 1 cup of liquid and dissolve the malt powder in it. Return to the saucepan and mix well. Strain into a large mixing bowl and chill over ice cubes and cold water.

4. Freeze in an ice-cream maker according to manufacturerÂ’s instructions.

Chocolate Malt Ice Cream

      3 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
      1 cup sugar
      4 to 6 tablespoons malted milk powder
      2 cups half and half
      2 large eggs, lightly beaten
      1 cup whipping cream
      2 teaspoons vanilla
      
      Combine chopped chocolate, sugar, malted milk powder and half and half in heavy, medium saucepan. Place over low heat and cook, stirring, until chocolate is completely melted and sugar is dissolved. Bring mixture to a simmer and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Slowly beat hot chocolate mixture into eggs in bowl. Return mixture to pan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly with whisk or wooden spoon, until custard thickens slightly. Be careful not to let mixture boil or eggs will scramble.
      Remove from heat. Pour through strainer into large, clean bowl. At this point, custard should be homogeneous. If you see specks of chocolate, allow custard to cool slightly, then pour custard into blender and blend 30 seconds. Pour back into bowl. Stir in cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
      Stir chilled custard, then process in 1 or 2 batches in ice cream machine according to manufacturer's directions. When finished, ice cream will be soft but ready to eat. For firmer ice cream, transfer to freezer-safe container and freeze at least 2 hours.
      Makes about 1 quart or 8 servings.

Chocolate Malt Ice Cream

1 1/3 cups sugar
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
1 cup boiling water
1 cup malt powder
6 cups whole milk

Combine the first 3 ingredients in a bowl; stir well with a whisk. Add malt
powder, stir until dissolved. Stir in milk; cover & chill. Pour mixture into
the freezer can of an ice-cream freezer; freeze according to manufacturer's
instructions.

Hi Mich_Match,

Welcome to Diana's Desserts Discussion Forum, and I hope you are having a Happy New Year.

Thank you for your idea about the dilly bars from Dairy Queen. I don't know if there are any Diary Queen's around this area where I live, but I will definitely try to find out. I know there is a Fosters Freeze in the next town to us. Some of these places like Dairy Queen and Fosters Freeze have gone out of business since the other "fast food" restaurants have become so popular, and also serve the soft serve ice cream.

When I find out, I will leave a message on this Discussion Forum, ok.

Thank you again.

Sincerely, Diana
Diana's Desserts

I can't help but wonder if the ice cream bars you all have been talking about are like the ones that they sell at dairy queen. I have no real idea of what cho cho bars were like in the 50's i was born in the 80's :-D but by the way i read them describe i guess the dilly bars at dairy queen is what you'd be looking for.

I found the following so you're not alone in wondering about these - but sorry it isn't a recipe!


ChoChos
When I was a child growing up in Brooklyn, New York, I loved to eat Cho Chos so much that I got the nickname of "Cho-Cho". My family moved west when I was 10 years old and I never saw or heard of them again. Many years later, while working in the city of Oceanside, Cal., I met and married a wonderful woman. Lo and behold, while talking of our pasts, Doris mentioned how much she used to love eating cho chos as a child while visiting her grandparents in St. Louis, Mo. This was the first person I had ever met who even had heard of this treat. We often have wondered whatever happened to those delicious Cho Chos. --- George Ahrens, Brooklyn, NY 1931 (currently residing: Oceanside, CA) married to 1947 Baby Boomer: Doris Ahrens, St. Louis, MO

Hi Jim,

Thank you for posting the information on Cho Cho's, and also about Tucker's Ice Cream Parlor in Alameda.

I would love to go to Tucker's, and plan to sometime during the next few months. It sounds like a great nostalgic place to visit.

I also remember rolling the cup between my hands to remove the cup and wrapper. That, as you say, along with the "first lick" was the best part of the whole Cho Cho experience.

Do you have the address for Tucker's and which highway is it off of? Is it Hwy 80?

I hope posting my experience at Tucker's Ice Cream Parlor (once I have finally made it there) for anyone who is in the Bay Area and craves those great bars, to go there and enjoy the Cho Cho's too! Thank you so much for all of your very helpful information.

Sincerely, Diana

Diana,
In response to your question about tasting the "Cho-Cho's" at Tucker's, the choc-malt ice cream was in a cup and on a stick. Although Tucker's has been around since the 40's, I don't think they were the original Cho-Cho company. The choc-malt was smooth and good, but like I said, did not have the magical clown wrapper. I think what made Cho-Cho's fun and different was the rolling between your hands to remove the cup, wrapper, and make the consistancy perfect for that first lick. More than the ice cream, though, the nostalgia of Tucker's and the many antique stores in Alameda would be worth a trip.

Best Regards, Jim

Hi Jim,

This is Diana from this website. Welcome to the Diana's Desserts Discussion Forum, and to Diana's Desserts website.

I grew up in San Francisco in the late 40's and 50's. I also don't remember the Cho Cho's having the crunch thing. I just remember the plain malted ice cream, smooth as you say.

They were great. Were the ones you had at Tucker's on a stick in a cup too?

I was thinking about taking a drive to the east bay to try them. Is it worth it?

Again, welcome. I hope you enjoy my website.

Sincerely, Diana

I am truly amazed at the interest in Cho Cho's. I was reminiscing with my wife about the wonderful malt ice cream that I enjoyed as a boy in San Francisco in the 40's and 50's (it was my father's favorite!) I did a Google search and came upon this discussion. I remember the 5 oz. cup variety with smooth ice cream, not the crunch bar. Although, I think the artwork and clown picture on the bar wrapper submitted by Maureen was the same - evidently both products of the Cho Cho Company. My wife and I recently went to Alameda and tried Tucker's Cho Cho. The malt ice cream tasted the same, but lacked the fun clown printed wrapper.

Best Regards, Jim

We didn't have these in Canada that I recall but found this while looking through the internet. Thought it might bring back memories for those of you who used to enjoy them. I love malted anything so I can imagine how good these must have been.

My sister and I were just reminiscing about Cho-Cho Bars.  We used to get them at Mr. Ford's Variety Store in Kansas City in the late 40's and 50's.  I wish I had a recipe but wish I could find a place to buy them even more.  I was very pleased to find so many others remembered them fondly.
