Course Dessert, Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 7/8 cups milk
  • 1-1/4 cups cream
  • 3/8 cups peppermint syrup
  • 10 Rausch Amacado chocolate sticks

Instructions

  • In a bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until foamy. In a hot water bath, place the bowl and add milk. Beat until creamy, while making sure that the mixture doesn’t get too hot. Allow to cool and fold in peppermint syrup.
  • In a bowl beat the cream until whipped. Cut the Rausch sticks into small pieces and fold into the ice cream.
  • Place the mixture into the freezer for about 20 minutes. Thereafter transfer it into an ice cream maker. It takes about 30-60 minutes to finish the ice cream in the maker. Place the ice cream in a freezer-safe container and allow to thoroughly freeze for another 3 hours or until firm.
