Best Chocolate Ice Cream Ever!

from Ellen's kitchen, thanks to Smitten Kitchen

Ingredients (to make one quart):
  • 2 cups cream
  • 3 tbs cocoa powder
  • 5 oz chopped bittersweet chocolate
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup cream with cocoa powder in medium saucepan, whisking to thoroughly blend cocoa.  Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer at very low boil for 30 seconds, whisking constantly.  Remove from the heat and add the chopped chocolate, stirring until smooth and shiny.  Then stir in remaining cup of cream.
  • milk, sugar, and salt in a saucepan, then transfer to a Pyrex measuring cup.  Whisk egg yolks in medium bowl.  Slowly pour in warm milk/sugar/salt mixture, whisking constantly.  Then pour entire mixture back into saucepan.  Cook mixture over medium-low heat, stirring constantly and scraping bottom, until custard thickens enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon and retain a line when drawn across the back with your finger, 3-5 minutes.  Pour the custard through a strainer.
  • chocolate cream and custard, stirring in vanilla extract.  Chill in fridge overnight and then put into ice cream machine, as directed.
