Phish Food Recipe

Okay, so here's the Phish Food Ice cream recipe. The chocolate ice cream recipe is from the Ben and Jerry's Ice cream Dessert Book. The rest is stuff that I thought to put in it to make it taste like the Ben and Jerry's brand Phish Food.

Jerry's Chocolate Ice cream Recipe--

2 oz unsweetened chocolate
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 cup milk
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 cup heavy or whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling water. Gradually whisk in the cocoa and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. (The chocolate may "seize" or clump together, Don't worry, the milk will dissolve it.) Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, and heat until completely blended. Remove from the heat and let cool.
2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and vanilla and whisk to blend.
3. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 to 3 hours, depending on your refrigerator.
4. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions.

Ingredients for Phish Food--
1 cup chocolate pieces (of your choice)
1 jar Marshmallow Fluff (marshmallow cream might work too)
Caramel Ice cream topper

1 to 2 minutes before the ice cream is finished mixing, add the chocolate pieces, marshmallow fluff and caramel. Don't mix too much so that the ingredients don't all go to the bottom of the ice cream. Freeze and enjoy!!
