Lucky Charms Ice Cream
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 1/2 cups Lucky Charms cereal (marshmallows removed)
- 5 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. green food coloring (optional)
- 1 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows
Meanwhile, whisk together the egg yolks and sugar. Once the milk mixture is heated through, add 1/2 cup of the milk mixture to the egg mixture in a slow but steady stream, whisking constantly to temper the eggs, careful not to add the milk too quickly or the eggs will scramble. This will make the eggs warm enough to add back into the saucepan without scrambling.
Slowly pour the tempered egg mixture back into the saucepan, add the vanilla extract, whisking constantly. Keep over a low heat and cook the mixture until thickened, should coat the back of your spoon or spatula.
Remove from the heat and whisk in the food coloring, place into the fridge, covered, for at least a few hours, or overnight until chilled completely.
To make the ice cream, add the chilled mixture to your ice cream maker and churn according to the directions. In the last minute of churning, add in the reserved marshmallows. Place into an airtight container and put into the fridge for 4 hours to chill before serving.
