French Silk Pie Ice Cream

When it is made well, French silk pie is a rich pie with deep chocolate flavor, not just a box of chocolate pudding in a pie shell. This ice cream is definitely the former: an extra deep chocolate ice cream that is thick and smooth, extremely decadent and dare I say almost guilty? Ok, food should never be guilty but enjoyed with abandon. Make this and enjoy the treat.

French Silk Pie Ice Cream
  1. 1 3/4 cup whole milk
  2. 1 1/4 cup heavy cream
  3. 3/4 cup brown sugar
  4. 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons corn starch
  6. 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  7. 1 teaspoon salt
  8. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  9. 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate
  1. Whisk together the milk and cream.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch. Mix until evenly combined and then whisk into the milk mixture.
  3. Place over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to steam. While coming up to a warm temperature cut chocolate into smal pieces and set aside. Continue to whisk and bring the ice cream mixture to a boil. When boiling throughout, remove from heat. Pass through strainer if needed.
  4. Whisk in vanilla and chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  5. Cool off slightly, 5-8 minutes.
  6. Pour into airtight container and chill 8-10 hours.
  7. To freeze, remove from refrigerator and pour into ice cream freezer. Follow the directions with your freezer; each one can vary. My KitchenAid attachment takes about 20-25.
  8. Dip into airtight container and place in deep freeze an additional 4-6 hours until hardened.
