DIRECTIONS

  • In a mixing bowl, beat the sugar into the egg yolks until thickened and pale yellow; set aside.
  • Bring the milk to a simmer in a saucepan; whisk in the cocoa and bring the milk back to a simmer; simmer 3 minutes, stirring constantly.
  • Slowly beat the hot milk mixture into the egg mixture.
  • Pour the entire mixture back into the pan and place over low heat.
  • Stir constantly with a whisk or wooden spoon until the custard thickens slightly; be careful not to let the mixture boil or the eggs will scramble.
  • Remove from heat and pour the hot custard through a strainer into a large, clean bowl; set aside.
  • Bring the cream to a simmer in a small saucepan; immediately remove from the heat and pour the cream over the chopped chocolate in a bowl.
  • Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth.
  • Combine the chocolate mixtures, then stir in the vanilla; cover and refrigerate until cold or overnight.
  • Stir the chilled custard; freeze in 1 or 2 batches in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s directions.
  • When finished, the ice cream will be soft but ready to eat; for firmer ice cream, transfer to a freezer-safe container and freeze several hours or overnight.
