Chocolate Caramel Brownie Ice Cream

This is the kind of ice cream that you don't want to tell anyone about.

For fear of them wanting some of your precious stash.

For fear of them taking away this beautiful thing from your life.

This ice cream.....is......amazing.

Rich, creamy chocolate ice cream. Chewy caramel brownies. What more could you want out of a bowl of ice cream?

Yummm look at those chunks of brownie!! And the caramel!! Ohhh I want some now. Too bad I made it for a friend - how nice of me!! I did sneak a taste of it though.........couldn't help myself!!

Recipe:

500ml heavy cream
3 tablespoons cocoa
150g bittersweet chocolate chopped(I used whittakers cause it was on special hehe)
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
dash of vanilla
1 quantity of dulce de leche brownies

Heat 250ml of the heavy cream in a medium saucepan. Add cocoa and whisk until smooth. Once mixture has come to the boil, take it off the heat and add the chocolate and stir until smooth and there are no lumps of chocolate left.

Transfer your cream & chocolate mixture to a medium size bowl. Using the same saucepan, heat the milk and sugar over medium heat until luke warm. Slowly add this to your egg yolks, whisking whilst adding. You need to make sure you continuously whisk it and that the milk mixture isn't too hot otherwise the eggs will cook!!

Transfer mixture back to your saucepan and heat until thickened. Add this to your chocolate mixture through a fine mesh sieve (just incase any of that egg has cooked.....gross!!) along with your remainig 250mls of cream. Chill over an ice bath in the fridge for at LEAST 4 hours. I chilled mine over night.

When you're ready, churn it according to your ice cream machines instructions and once you've transferred it to a container, break your brownies in to chunks and add them on in!!

It's seriously delicious. I wish I didn't have to give it away!! I'll definitely be making another batch soon.
