A Whopper of an Ice Cream
Malted Milk Ice Cream
1 cup whole milk
2/3 cup sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2/3 cup malt powder (found in your grocery section by the chocolate milk powders/coffee)
6 large egg yolks
2 cups malted milk balls, coarsely chopped in the food processor (or with a sharp knife if you don't mind malted milk balls flying all over your kitchen!)
Warm the milk with the sugar in a medium saucepan. In a large bowl, stir together the cream, vanilla and malt powder until well combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks.
When the milk is warm, slowly pour it into the egg yolks, whisking constantly, then pour the entire mixture back in the saucepan. Stir this mixture constantly over medium heat with a spatula, scraping as you stir, until the mixture thickens and coats the spatula.
