Ingredients

3/4 cup whole milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1 vanilla bean, split and seeds scraped

8 ounces granulated sugar

10 egg yolks

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

6 ounces sweet dark chocolate, chopped

Directions

  1. Place whole milk, heavy cream, and vanilla bean and seeds in a sauce pot and scald. Remove vanilla bean. Whip the granulated sugar and egg yolks to a pale yellow ribbon state. Your sugar and egg yolks should be nice and fluffy. Add about a 1/2 cup of your scalded cream to your chopped chocolate in a bowl. Stir until melted. Place the bowl over a double boiler of barely simmering water. Set up a second double boiler. Constantly stirring with a wooden spoon, add scalded cream to your whipped egg and sugar mixture. Place egg and cream mixture over the double boiler and cook custard until it becomes thick and creamy. See Cook's Note.
  2. Once custard is cooked, place the bowl over a cold water bath to cool. Gradually add your melted chocolate. Once custard is cool place in an ice cream machine and run as per manufacturer's instructions. Enjoy the love.

Cook’s Note

It is recommended that the custard not be heated over 140 degrees F.
