1.2 liters milk

About 2 1/2 ounces non-fat milk powder

About 1/4 ounce stabilizer (cremodan ice cream)

About 1 1/2 ounces egg yolks

About 3 1/2 ounces sugar

About 13 ounces 72% chocolate, chopped

About 3 1/2 ounces peanut putter crunch cereal (recommended: Captain Crunch)

About 1-ounce cocoa powder


  1. For the Chocolate ice cream:
  2. In a medium saucepan boil milk with trimoline. Add the milk powder and stabilizer, and stir to mix well. Combine the egg yolks and the sugar in a small bowl. Remove the milk mixture from the heat and add a little to the eggs to temper. Return the egg mixture to the saucepan. Add the chocolate and whisk to emulsify.

  5. Crunch:

  7. Assembly and Plating:
  8. Spoon 2 tablespoons crunch into each ice cream coupe and place 1 scoop of chocolate ice cream on top. Add a generous portion of marshmallow over the ice cream and burnish with a hand-held blow torch, if desired. Serve immediately.
