Ingredients

  • 8 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 2 cups skim milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, off heat, whisk together egg yolks, sugar, and salt until blended. Stir cocoa powder into egg-yolk mixture. Gradually whisk in milk.

  2. Cook over medium, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, until custard thickens slightly and evenly coats back of spoon (it should hold a line drawn by your finger), 10 to 12 minutes.

  3. Pour custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl set over ice. Stir in cream. Let stand, stirring occasionally, until chilled. Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer ice cream to a resealable plastic container and freeze until firm, about 2 hours (or up to 3 months).
