Stix in the Mud Crumb Ice Cream

Submitted by herman_the_german

This chocolate ice cream is made on the stove top, custard style. Stix in the Mud Crumbs are added while ice cream is freezing.

Ingredients

  • 1¾ cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 egg yolk
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 ozs unsweetened chocolate, melted
  • ⅔ cup coarsely crumbled Stix in the Mud

Instructions

Ingredients:

* 1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
* 1 cup milk
* 1 cup sugar
* 3 egg yolks
* 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
* 3 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted
* 2/3 cup coarsely crumbled Stix in the Mud

Preparation:
In a heavy medium saucepan over medium heat, stir together the cream, milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is scalded.

In a mixing bowl, beat the egg yolks until lemon-colored. Gradually whisk in about 1 cup of the hot cream mixture; then slowly whisk the egg mixture back into the saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. Whisk in the melted chocolate and vanilla.

Set the bottom of the pan inside a bowl or dishpan filled with ice and water; stir until the mixture is about room temperature. Pour it into a bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn following manufacturer's directions, for 20 to to 30 minutes.
