Original Ice Cream Flavor: Ovaltine Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream Ice Cream Chef: Rachel of Coconut & Lime What inspired this recipe? My husband loves Ovaltine stirred into cold milk and I love anything that combines chocolate and malt. Ovaltine ice cream seemed like a logical step; retro and comforting but in a fun new form and with dark chocolate chunks. Tastetester comments and full recipe after the jump.

Tastetester Comments: My husband, Matt Rappaport said "Ovaltineriffic! It is like Ovaltine but better. I can't wait to have more!" Ovaltine Chocolate Chunk Chunk Ice Cream Yield: about 1 pint Ingredients: 1 cup milk (I used 2%) 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/4 cup sugar, divided use 1/3 cup rich, chocolatey Ovaltine 2 oz dark chocolate, chopped* 3 egg yolks 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sea salt Directions: In a heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk together half of the sugar (1/8 of a cup equals 2 tablespoons) and all of the milk and cream until the sugar dissolves and the mixture almost boils, about 2-3 minutes. Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining sugar and the egg yolks until it is yellow and creamy, about 2 minutes. Add about a 1/4 cup of the cream mixture into the eggs and whisk to combine. Pour the egg/cream mixture it into the cream mixture on the stove. Whisk in Ovaltine, vanilla and a pinch of sea salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 8 minutes or until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and then strain the mixture into a bowl. Allow to cool on the counter then cover and place in the refrigerator to cool completely. Remove from the refrigerator and stir in the chocolate bits. Pour into a ice cream maker and churn until cold and set. Place in a freeze-safe container and freeze until solid. *I chopped up part of a 70% Extra-bitter Sirius Pure Icelandic Chocolate bar I found at Whole Foods to give the ice cream a "grown up" edge but a slightly less dark bar could also be used.
