I used a modified version of this recipe since I love alcoholic ice cream so much!!
Ingredients1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
6 large egg yolks
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
3 1/2 Tbsp rum
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 little brownie bites, torn into tiny pieces
How ToMix milk, cream, and 1/2 cup sugar in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil.
Meanwhile, whisk yolks, 2 Tbsp sugar, and salt in a medium bowl until mixture is pale yellow and sugar dissolves.
Whisking yolk mixture constantly, gradually add a few tablespoons at a time of hot cream mixture (to prevent the eggs in the yolk mixture from scrambling). Return to pan. Stir custard over low heat until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 2 minutes. Immediately strain custard through a fine mesh sieve into another bowl. Let custard cool completely, stirring often.
Stir 1 Tbsp. rum and vanilla into custard. Add more rum to taste by tablespoons, if desired.
Cover and chill for at least 4 hours, up to overnight.
Process custard in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions. Add the brownie bites during the last 2 minutes, transfer ice cream to an airtight container, cover, and freeze.
Enjoy with coworkers and tiny party hats!! Happy birthday, Alana!! (And me!)
