1/4 Cup White chocolate; chop coarse
1/4 Cup Semisweet chocolate; chop
1/4 Cup Pecan halves; chopped
1/4 Cup Walnuts; chop coarse
1/4 Cup Chocolate covered almonds; cut in half
4 Ounce Unsweetened chocolate
1 Cup Milk
2 Large Eggs
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Heavy or whipping cream
1 Teaspoon Vanilla extract
1 Pinch Salt
Combine the coarsely chopped chocolate, pecans, walnuts and chocolate covered
almonds in a bowl, cover and refrigerate. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the
top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling water. Whisk in the milk, a little
at a time, and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from the heat and
let cool. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely
blended, about 1 minute more. Add the cream, vanilla and salt and whisk to
blend. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend.
Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1-3 hours, depending on your
refrigerator. Transfer the cream mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze
following the manufacturer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2
minutes before it is done), add the chocolate and nuts, then continue freezing
until the ice cream is ready.
Makes one Generous Quart.
