Tantric Ice Cream

It's stuff like this that almost makes me believe there is a God and He lives inside a cow's udder.

Jay's Tantric Chocolate Ice Cream

  • 3 cups cream (not heavy cream)
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
Start heating the cream over medium heat. Sift in 1/2 cup sugar + cocoa. Whisk until disolved. Add chocolate (it's easier if it's chopped up) and stir until melted. Whisk egg yolks and remaining 1/4 cup sugar until well mixed (about 1 minute). Whisk in a cup of cream mix into egg mix (if you don't whisk you'll make scrambled eggs) then whisk all this back into cream mix. Heat to 180 degrees F while mixing fairly often. Remove from heat and chill to at least room temp (this is the tantric part considering how long you have to wait). If you're really fanatical, run it through a sieve before it gets cool. Then churn and eat...and thank me later.

Update: Whoops! Don't forget to add the vanilla. Do that after the heating.

1/4 cup of cocoa, I assume?

Yes. I'll clarify.
