Scooped: White Chocolate Ice Cream with Nerds Recipe
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
4 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
8 oz white chocolate, finely chopped
1/3 cup Nerds, assorted colors/flavors
Whisk the egg yolks and sugar together until they turn pale yellow, about 3-5 minutes. In medium saucepan, mix the milk and cream with egg yolks and sugar, and cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and holds a line on the back of a spoon. Add white chocolate to large bowl. Pour hot custard through strainer into bowl with chocolate, and stir carefully until chocolate is fully melted and incorporated. Let ice cream base rest at least 4 hours and up to overnight in refrigerator. Spin it in your ice cream machine according to manufacturer's instructions. Meanwhile, put medium mixing bowl in the freezer to chill. When ice cream is finished, scoop it out of machine into chilled bowl and mix in Nerds. Freeze until hardened, 1 to 2 hours.
