"The brave at heart can add the cayenne, or leave it out if you tend towards the wimpy side. LOL. In either case, this is a good rich chocolatey ice cream. I use a Cuisinart ice cream maker - the type where you freeze the container. This ice cream is easy to customize. Sometimes I use rum-soaked raisins instead of choc chips. Sometimes I chop up cinnamon baking chips instead of the mini choc ones. SEE NOTE AT END OF DIRECTIONS."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Place the pudding mix, cocoa, sugar, cinnamon and cayenne, if using, in a large bowl. Mix well using a wire whisk. Add the half & half, heavy cream, milk and vanilla. Whisk until fully mixed. It will be slightly thick due to the instant pudding.

Step 2

Pour mixture into the ice cream freezer (I use a Cuisinart), and follow the manufacturers instructions to freeze. When almost done, add the mini chocolate chips.

Step 3

Transfer to a freezer container and freeze for at least 4 hours.

Step 4

NOTE: My ice cream maker doesn't hold this entire recipe. I do it in two batches, which takes two days since I have to wait another day for the freezer container to freeze again. Sometimes I only make half a recipe.
