Happy National Chocolate Ice Cream Day! Try Some Guinness Milk Chocolate Ice Cream For An Irish Version.

Today is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day and chocolate and Guinness sounds like a winning combination to me. You may need an ice cream maker to finish this.  Have fun!

choc ice

7 ounces (205 g) milk chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup (250 ml) whole milk
1/2 cup (100 g) sugar
Pinch of salt
4 large egg yolks
1 cup (250 ml) heavy cream
3/4 cup (180 ml) Guinness Stout
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1  Put the chocolate pieces in a large bowl and set a mesh strainer over the top.
2  Warm the milk, sugar, and salt in a medium saucepan. In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. Slowly pour the warm mixture into the egg yolks, whisking constantly, then scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the saucepan.
3  Stir the mixture constantly over medium heat with a heatproof spatula, scraping the bottom as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula. Pour the custard through the strainer over the milk chocolate, then stir until the chocolate is melted. Once the mixture is smooth, whisk in the cream, then the Guinness and vanilla. Stir until cool over an ice bath.
4  Chill the mixture thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze it in your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
