Malted Milk Whopper Ice Cream

This was my first attempt at making homemade ice cream.  My parents gave me their old ice cream machine, and after finding the perfect recipe, I set out for an adventure!  I’m not actually a fan of ice cream, but my husband loves it.  This ice cream was quite delicious.  It was super smooth and creamy and contained my favorite candy – Whoppers!  It was definitely an involved process, but it was fun and I can’t wait to try out other flavors.  If you like Whoppers candy, this is definitely one to make!  If you want your ice cream to be chocolate, use the chocolate malt powder (I used regular).

1 cup fat-free half and half
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
pinch of salt
2 cups heavy cream
1/4 tsp vanilla
2/3 cup malt powder
6 large egg  yolks
2 cups malted milk balls, coarsely chopped

Warm the half and half, sugar and salt in a medium saucepan just till warm.  In a large bowl, whisk the heavy cream, vanilla and malt powder.  Set a mesh strainer on top of this bowl.

In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth.  Slowly pour the warm milk mixture into the yolks, whisking constantly.  Scrape the warmed egg yolks back into the pan, stirring constantly over medium heat until thickened and coats the spatula.  Pour custard through the strainer and whisk into malted milk mix.  Stir until cool over an ice bath.  Chill thoroughly in the refrigerator, then freeze in the ice cream machine.  As you remove the ice cream from the machine, fold in the chopped malted milk balls.
