Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Milk

3 1/2 cups ice milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 1/3 cups low-fat (1 percent) milk
  • 2 large egg yolks, beaten lightly
  • 1 tablespoon green white creme de menthe
  • 1 ounce fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened), chopped
  • In a saucepan whisk together sugar and cornstarch and whisk in milk. Bring mixture to a boil over moderate heat, stirring frequently, and boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Remove pan from heat.

  • In a small bowl stir about one fourth milk mixture into yolks and pour into remaining milk mixture, whisking constantly. Cook mixture over low heat, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened and a thermometer registers 160 degrees F. (Do not boil mixture or it will curdle.) Stir in creme de menthe and transfer mixture to a bowl. Chill mixture about 1 hour, or until cool.

  • In a small heavy saucepan melt chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally, and cool slightly. Put chocolate in a small sealable plastic bag and seal bag, pressing out excess air. Squeeze chocolate to one corner of bag and snip off 1/8 inch from corner to form a makeshift pastry bag. Freeze milk mixture in an ice-cream maker and with motor running add chocolate in a thin stream during last few minutes of freezing time.
