Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 4 cups half and half
  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup mini marshmallows
  • 6 graham crackers, broken into pieces
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Whisk together 2 cups of the half and half with the egg yolks and sugar and cook in the top of a double boiler until thickened, about 5 minutes. Pour half of this mixture into a 4 cup covered container, add the vanilla extract and 1 cup of the heavy cream. Whisk the cocoa into the remaining hot custard mixture, then pour this into a 4 cup covered container along with the remaining 1 cup of heavy cream. Chill the ice cream mixtures completely.
  2. Freeze ice cream, one flavor at a time, in an ice cream machine according to manufacturer's directions. When the chocolate is semi-firm, remove from the machine into a covered container and stir in marshmallows and half of the broken crackers. When the vanilla is semi-firm, remove from machine and stir in the chocolate chips and the other half of the crackers. Chill both in the freezer until nearly solid.
  3. Scoop some of each flavor into a third container, pressing together as you go, to create a marbled ice cream. Freeze until solid.
