    1. 1
      Place the cocoa powder along with 1 cup of the half-and-half into a medium saucepan over medium heat and whisk to combine.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining half-and-half and the heavy cream.
    3. 3
      Bring the mixture just to a simmer, stirring occasionally, and remove from the heat.
    4. 4
      In a medium mixing bowl whisk the egg yolks until they lighten in color.
    5. 5
      Gradually add the sugar and whisk to combine.
    6. 6
      Temper the cream mixture into the eggs and sugar by gradually adding small amounts, until about 1/3 of the cream mixture has been added.
    7. 7
      Pour in the remainder and return the entire mixture to the saucepan and place over low heat.
    8. 8
      Continue to cook, stirring frequently, until the mixture thickens slightly and coats the back of a spoon and reaches 170 to 175 degrees F.
    9. 9
      Pour the mixture into a container and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
    10. 10
      Stir in the vanilla extract.
    11. 11
      Place the mixture into the refrigerator and once it is cool enough not to form condensation on the lid, cover and store for 4 to 8 hours or until the temperature reaches 40 degrees F or below.
    12. 12
      Pour into an ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer's directions.
    13. 13

      Serve as is for soft serve or freeze for another 3 to 4 hours to allow the ice cream to harden.

      This was a really nice treat. We really enjoyed it. We followed the recipe precisely. Next time I think we'd reduce the chocolate. I used 1/2 cup and it was a bit too much chocolate. Thank you! Had to come back after having this definitely tastes better the day after. 5 stars! Thanks again.

      This chocolate ice cream is heaven! After making Charlotte's Angel Food Cake, I was looking for a way to use up some of the leftover egg yolks and discovered this wonderful recipe! Creamy, rich and smooth! Delicious and rich in chocolaty flavor! I made exactly as directed for a wonderful treat! Thanks so much, Charlotte!
