May 6, 2011
2 ounces bittersweet chocolate
5 tablespoons cocoa powder
2 cups milk
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup sugar
1 cup cream
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup Smooth or Crunchy Barney Butter
Melt chocolate over low heat.
Gradually stir in cocoa powder and milk while continuing to heat. You want the consistency to be thick but not solid as you add the milk and cocoa powder. Beat sugar into eggs. Stir hot chocolate/milk mixture into eggs. Add cream and vanilla extract. Cool. Just before adding to ice cream maker, stir a cup of ice cream mixture into Barney Butter. Once mixed, stir into rest of ice cream mixture. Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions. Very rich and delicious!!
“I absolutely LOVE Barney Butter. Seriously, my husband had little tears in the corners of his eyes when he tasted this. My daughter’s allergic so we don’t have any peanut products in the house. We had long given up any hope of a nut butter that tasted good!” — Gabrielle
