Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat milk, ground coffee, 1/4 cup brown sugar, and mint in a saucepan over low heat until warmed through, 7 to 10 minutes.

  • Whisk egg yolks and remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar in a bowl; slowly whisk in about 1 cup hot milk mixture. Pour egg yolk mixture into saucepan and continue to heat until custard is thickened, about 5 minutes.

  • Line a sieve with cheesecloth and strain custard into a large bowl; discard solids. Whisk heavy cream into custard. Cover and refrigerate until chilled, 4 to 5 hours.

  • Stir rum and chocolate into chilled custard and pour into an ice cream maker. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

Cook's Note:

Just a note on the amount of rum: alcohol doesn't freeze easily so adding it will make your ice cream more slushy than solid so you might want to lessen the alcohol a bit if you want it more creamy and solid.

Absolutely delish but needed some tweaking! I made some modifications to simplified the recipe. First I combined milk coffee brown sugar mint and egg yolks in a saucepan and whisked over medium-low for 15 minutes; no need to temper the eggs. I also reduced the amount of mint down to 1/2 a bunch which is about 20 leaves; I'm glad I did it because the flavor was well balanced. Another important process I did was to add rum a couple minutes before the end of freezing process otherwise it may impede it. I wanted to have another layer of flavor but knew it may overpower the ingredients so I reduced the amount of alcohol down to 1 tsp. After alterations it is definitely a 5 star treat. Read More
