I Scream for Ice cream!

In the beginning there were simple ingredients
Things you could trust, Things you didn't have to Question
Now you have to check labels on anything you dare eat.
So in defense of MY food I decided it was time 
for good old fashion ice cream
Cream, Milk, Sugar, Eggs, Vanilla & Cocoa  
- No additives, Preservatives or other junk -
The Deets
2 Cups Cream
2 Cups Skim Milk
6 Eggs Yolks
1/2 Cup Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 Cups of Sugar
1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
Mix Milk & Cream with Cocoa Powder and bring to a simmer
Once Cocoa Powder is well incorporated add chocolate chips 
and continue simmering until chocolate chips are melted
Separate yoke from whites
Whisk yolks until creamy light yellow
Gradually whisk in Sugar until Smooth
Add 1/4 of cream mixture into egg mixture
Carefully temper mixture
Continue gradually adding cream mixture 1/4 at a time until fully incorporated
Return the mixture to heat, 
continue cooking until mixture reaches 170 degrees
Now for the Hard Part...The Waiting!
Let mixture cool for 30 minutes, Add Vanilla
Mix Well & Refrigerate for 4 hours
Once Mixture sets pour into Ice Cream Machine 
& proceed according to machine directions
(I'm a big fan of the Kitchen Aid attachment it's about $100)
It takes about 20 minutes in the KitchenAid
Ice Cream is Served!
*Warning* This is Super Chocolaty! I thought it was a little too chocolaty (crazy I know)
Husband said there is No such thing & loved every bite.
SO If you're into Super Chocolaty Ice Cream Give this recipe a shot.
