Milk Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream

As strange as it may seem I don’t really care for chocolate ice cream. Sure, I like it, but I would choose vanilla ice cream over chocolate any day (cake, now that’s a different story). Anyways, I hadn’t made chocolate ice cream yet and decided on this one. David Lebovitz suggested adding some brownie pieces so I did just that. This chocolate ice cream is delicious and the brownie pieces put it over the top delicious. It’s very rich, but definitely good.

For this recipe I had leftover brownies from the brownie mosaic cheesecake I made. You could use any brownie recipe, but these one bowl brownies were tasty and easy.

Milk Chocolate Brownie Ice Cream
8 oz. milk chocolate with at least 30 percent cocoa solids, finely chopped
1 1/2 Cups heavy cream
1 1/2 Cups whole milk
3/4 Cups sugar
Bing pinch of salt
4 large egg yolks
2 tsps cognac (I used rum)
1/4 Cup cocoa nibs or semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (optional)
2 cups brownie chunks

Combine the milk chocolate and cream i a large, heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted, then remove the bowl from the saucepan. Set it aside with a mesh strainer over the top.

Warm the milk, sugar, and salt until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula. Pour the custard through the strainer into the milk chocolate mixture, add the cognac, and mix together. Stir until cool over an ice bath.

Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. During the last few minutes of churning, add the cocoa nibs, if using. Fold in brownies.

    Mmmm, love this! So tasty sounding with all of that chocolate. Where does the mint come in?
