2 cups (1/2 l) milk
2/3 cup (150 g) sugar
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup (10 cl) whipping cream
1 bar dark chocolate (100 g / 3.5 oz)
Chocolate Ice Cream
Pour milk in a pot and bring to a boil (stir often to prevent it from
burning on the bottom). While the milk is heating, beat the egg yolks
and the sugar in a bowl, until the mixture becomes smooth and
whiter. Pour the boiling milk on the mixture. Put the mixture in a pot
over low heat, and stir constantly. When the mixture becomes slightly
thicker, remove immediately from the heat (before
boiling; if you have a thermometer, don't let the mixture go above 70 C / 158 F). Just after removing from the
heat, add the chocolate bar (cut up in small chunks), and keep
stirring until all the chocolate is completely melted.
mixture cool to room temperature; add the whipping cream, and put in
your favourite ice-cream maker.
