My son's 18th birthday party is this weekend and I promised him that I would make homemade chocolate chip ice cream to go with his chocolate chip cake. I was bored with the recipes in the booklet that came with my ice cream maker and they never tasted just right - always kind of grainy with a filmy aftertaste. So I went looking for one to use today and this one takes the cake! I modified it just a bit and doubled the recipe and here is what I used - **note this made a perfect 4 quart serving size!** 4 eggs, 2 cups of sugar, 1/2 tsp of salt, 4 cups of whipping cream, 2 cups of half and half, 2 cups of milk (I used 2%), 3 T vanilla, mini chocolate chips. I started by taking the sugar and the eggs and creaming them until they were thick and gooey. In a medium pan, I put all the milk and cream in and stirred it constantly. Once it was hot, I added the vanilla and the egg/sugar mixture. I continued cooking on medium heat about 15 minutes, still stirring constantly. After about 15 minutes, it will start to thicken nicely and stick to the back of the spoon. I pour my custard into a bowl and lined the top of the custard with plastic wrap before adding the lid. Let it cool for a few hours in the fridge then popped it in my Rival and started churning! I added the chocolate chips about halfway through the churning process. It took a full 40 - 45 minutes but it was perfect when it came out! I felt like I was eating an ice cream sundae fresh off of the farm! Thank you so much
