    1 cup sugar
    2 cups whole milk
    1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    4 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened)
    4 large egg yolks


In a dry 3-quart heavy saucepan cook 1/4 cup sugar, undisturbed, over moderate heat until it begins to melt and cook, stirring with a fork, until melted completely and deep golden brown. Remove pan from heat and dip pan briefly into a bowl of ice water to stop cooking. (Caramel will harden.)
Cool pan about 5 minutes and return to heat. Add milk and cook over moderate heat, whisking, until caramel is melted. Whisk in cocoa until combined well and keep mixture warm.
In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat egg yolks with remaining 3/4 cup sugar until thick and pale. Add egg yolk mixture the the milk and chocolate. Cook over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, until a candy thermometer registers 140 F. Add bittersweet chocolate.
Cook custard, stirring (do not let it boil) 4 minutes more and remove pan from heat.
Cool custard completely and freeze in an ice-cream maker. Gelato will keep in the freezer for one week.
