Cookie Dough Fudge Mint Chip, 2.2

April 24, 2010

Chocolate ice cream with mint patties and raw cookie dough.

Not bad at all, but not what I had in mind.

I love the mint patties!
Problem is I put too many of them and they kinda took over.
The cookie dough was just too mild between all the chocolate and mint, so it didn’t add anything to the flavor. It gave some crunchy texture because of the un-dissolved sugar crystals, which could be good or bad, depending on your own preferences.
The chocolate ice cream was very chocolaty, but it wasn’t fudgy. It had some powdery feeling because it was made with cocoa powder and not chocolate, wasn’t smooth and creamy as I would expect from fudge. It is a great chocolate ice cream, but it’s not fudge ice cream. Maybe I’ll try a different recipe for it next time.

Here is what I’ve done:
1/3 recipe raw cookie dough
150gr mint patties, chopped in to quarters (should have used just 100gr)
1 cup milk
1 egg
200gr sugar (150gr might have been better, more ‘dark chocolaty’)
80gr cocoa powder
2 cups heavy cream
Whisk the together the milk, egg and sugar, and heat over a low flame until a thing custard forms. Remove from the heat and stir in the cocoa powder until well combined. Let cool and add the cream.
Cool in the fridge over night (and freeze the ice cream maker bowl).
Freeze ice cream according to ice cream maker instructions, adding the cookie dough and mint patties after it’s done.
