White Chocolate Ice Cream

Sunday, February 15, 2009

We had a busy day yesterday so this is my belated Valentine’s Day post. We love white chocolate and this seemed liked the perfect recipe to break in our new homemade ice cream maker, yippee!! We were all so hungry and anxious to try the ice cream that we stopped the ice cream maker too early, so it ended up being soft serve but it was still delicious!

2/3 cup sugar
1 cup milk
2 cups heavy cream
8 ounces white chocolate, finely chopped
5 large egg yolks

In a medium saucepan warm the sugar, the milk and 1 cup of heavy cream. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, then gradually add some of the cream mixture, whisking constantly as you pour in the warm cream. Pour the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom with a heat-resistant spatula until the custard thickens enough to coat the spatula. Pour the white chocolate into the custard and stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Add the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream and chill thoroughly. You can set the bowl over an ice bath to speed it up. Chill mixture thoroughly, then freeze in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Nothing says love better than an empty bowl and two spoons :-)

There's nothing like home made ice cream made from fresh and natural ingredients.
