rich chocolate ice cream

A handful of days ago, I was craving a warm mug of warm beverage. With ingredients on hand (cocoa, brown sugar, salt, instant coffee, Bailey's) I heated up a tasty cup. Inspired, I was eager to freeze the flavors.

- mix 5 egg yolks, 1 tablespoon salt, 1/2 cup cocoa, and 1.5 cups packed brown sugar.
- slowly whisk in 2 cups of scalded milk
- bring custard into its own, and remove from heat.
- add 2 cups whipping cream

The combination of chocolate and coffee: always great. Brown sugar adds a more full flavor than regular, granular sugar. And the extra salt highlights everything. Addictive indeed.
