  • 1 1/2 C whole milk
  • 1 1/2 C heavy cream

  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 5 large egg yolks
  • 5 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C chocolate cookie pieces


  • Add 1 cup heavy cream and vanilla to a large bowl with a mesh strainer set on top.
  • Combine whole milk, 1/2 cup heavy cream, sugar, cocoa powder and salt in a medium saucepan, cooking over medium heat until sugar has dissolved. Cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and steaming.
  • In a small bowl, whisk eggs. Slowly drizzle 1 cup hot liquid into egg yolks, whisking continuously. Return egg mixture to saucepan. Cook until mixture coats the back of a spatula or wooden spoon. Add chocolate, stirring until melted and mixture is smooth. Pour through a mesh strainer into remaining heavy cream. Place bowl in an ice bath, stirring until cooled. Cover and chill thoroughly, 4-6 hours or overnight.
