Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 300 ml (1-1/4 cups) double cream or heavy cream
  • 300 ml (1-1/4 cups) single cream or half and half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla paste or extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate fudge sauce
  • 90 grams mini peanut butter cups (or a similar size bag)

Instructions

  1. Make sure you know the instructions for your ice cream machine and that all the parts are prepped in time for churning your ice cream.
  2. Add both types of cream and the sugar to a medium saucepan and heat over low heat until, stirring occasionally until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture starts to cream or bubbles form at the edge of the pan. Remove from heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Slowly drizzle in the hot cream a few tablespoons at a time, whisking constantly, until you've added at least a cup of cream. This will slowly raise the temperature of the eggs and stop them from scrambling. Once you've got the egg mixture warmed up, you can add it back to the saucepan.
  4. Add the salt and vanilla, and stir the custard over medium low heat until it thickens. It may get a few bubbles, but you don't want it to boil. Heat it slowly, and it will start to thicken until it coats the spoon. 
  5. Strain this mixture with a mesh sieve into a bowl or measuring jug (I use the same bowl I whisked the eggs in) and let it cool on the counter for about an hour. Then cover it with plastic wrap touching the surface of the custard, and chill it in the fridge for at least 4 hours.
  6. Churn your ice cream according to your machine's instructions. To work in the fudge and peanut butter cups, scoop a bit of the ice cream out of your ice cream machine, then stir in some fudge and candy, repeating until you've got everything into the container and combined. Freeze for at least 8 hours before serving.
