|Mr. Fudge Ripple|
You know how a hero can never be a hero until he/she overcomes a weakness- something potentially fatal that could destroy them, but in the end helps them to become a stronger, more awesome person?
Like Indiana Jones and snakes, for example. Or Frodo and the Ring. Guinevere and her crush on Lancelot.
|Mr. Fudge Ripple- sans sprinkles. Looks a bit sad doesn't he?|
Well, I am by no means a hero-- but I do share one thing in common with them. I have a potentially fatal, sinful flaw. Ice Cream. (And my ridiculous obsession with it).
It's becoming a problem.. But after making all those macarons last week....and all those lonely egg yolks leftover.... Sometimes you just have to make sacrifices. How could I waste all those yolks?!
"Would be a travesty, it would. Quite right. I must produce the ice cream at once."

Fudge Ripple Ice Cream
For the Fudge Sauce
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (or evaporated milk)
1) Place your chocolate chips in a small bowl. Heat your cream (either or in the stove or in the microwave) until it almost comes to a simmer. Pour over your chocolate chips and let sit for about 5 minutes. Then whisk until smooth. Refrigerate until cooled.
For the Vanilla Ice Cream
adapted from taste.com.au
5 egg yolks
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 recipe Fudge Sauce (or more, your call)
sprinkles (for serving)
1) Place egg yolks and sugar in a heat-proof, medium bowl. Place bowl over a pot of simmering water (like a double boiler, so that the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water's surface). Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 5 minutes, until thick and pale and a ribbon trail forms when beaters are lifted out of the mixture. Remove bowl from the pot.
2) Whisk in the milk, whipping cream, and vanilla. Pour through a seive (just to make sure the mixture is super smooth) and then pour into your ice cream maker and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
3) When the ice cream has finished, scoop 1/3 of your ice cream into a tupperware container. Drizzle a third of the fudge, then another third of the ice cream and so on. Then lightly stir together until the chocolate is swirly in the ice cream. Place in your freezer for an hour or two so it has the chance to harden up a little more (or just eat it like soft serve).
