Why I Love This Recipe

I love this recipe because it is super fun to make, all though a process.

Ingredients You'll Need

6 cups half and half
4 cups sugar
1 vanilla bean
18 large egg yolks
6 cups heavy cream
6 ounces dark chocolate chips
2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 pound strawberries, hulled
2 tablespoons sugar
1 to 2 drops red food coloring


For the custard base and vanilla ice crea, layer, in a medium saucepan over medium low heat, combine the half and half and sugar. Stir it around to combine.

Using a small paring knife, split the vanilla bean down the middle. Scrape out the caviar inside and add it to the pan along with the bean. Stir the mixture around and heat it up until its hot but not boiling.

Add the egg yolks to a medium bowl and whist them until the yolks are slightly lighter in color, about two minutes.

Remove the vanilla bean from the saucepan. Grab a ladle of the hot half and half mixture and drizzle it very slowly into the yolks, whisking constantly. This will temper the egg yolks so that they don't scramble when they are added to the sauce pan. Add another ladle of the hot egg micture slowly into the half and half micture, stirring with a spoon until the mixtue, stirring with a spoon until the mixture is thick and coating the spoon, two minutes or so.

Set the fine mesh strainer over a clean glass bowl and strain the custard. Divide the mixture into three pitchers and set aside one pitcher to work with he for the chocolate ice cream, layer, chill the other two.
