Chocolate Cookies & Cream Ice Cream

Chocolate Cookies & Cream
I love trying new ice cream recipes.  I've already tried a few different cookies and creams, so I thought I'd do this chocolate recipe when I saw it.  I don't enjoy store-bought chocolate ice cream at all, but I am ok with homemade.  :)

Chocolate Cookies & Cream Ice Cream
adapted from Cooking Classy

2 cups heavy cream
2 cups whole milk
6 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
1 Tbsp light corn syrup
2/3 cup granulated sugar
3 large egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 pinch salt
2 Tbsp cocoa powder
1-2 cups crushed Oreos (I used 2!)

1.  In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, combine cream, milk, chocolate and corn syrup and cook mixture, stirring frequently just until mixture nearly boils. Meanwhile combine sugar, egg yolks, vanilla extract and salt in a small mixing bowl and using an electric hand mixer set on medium speed, whip mixture until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Blend in cocoa powder.

2.  Reduce cream mixture to medium-low and take 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture and pour into the egg yolk mixture while whisking, then add egg yolk mixture to saucepan while stirring. Cook mixture, stirring constantly until thickened about 4 - 5 minutes. Transfer mixture to a bowl, let cool a few minutes, then cover with plastic wrap and chill until very cold; overnight is best.

3.   Pour mixture into an ice cream maker and process according to manufactures directions, mixing in Oreos after ice cream is removed from the machine. Store in freezer in an airtight container.
