Cinnamon Toast Crunch Ice Cream  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

Have I ever told you guys about my day job? I may moonlight as a world famous food blogger, but that doesn't exactly pay the bills! I wake up and drag myself to work like the rest of you, and no one there knows about my secret life.

At work, I make ice cream and gelato for a local artisan sweets company. Most of the time it’s pretty tedious (I make a lot of vanilla and chocolate), but sometimes I get to create new flavors and it’s really fun!

I’ve made ice cream with some cool stuff like Lucky Charms, Girl Scout Cookies, and popcorn, and a even weirder things like rosemary, basil, green tea, bacon and blue cheese!

The Lucky Charms flavor was good, but the oats got soggy after a few hours. This time around, I had the idea to coat the cereal in chocolate to prevent it from getting soggy. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch ice cream with chocolate covered cereal clusters was amazing and it sold out in record time.

Step one is to soak half of the cereal in milk to give the milk that end-of-the-bowl flavor.

Strain out the soggy cereal and discard. Use this milk to make the ice cream custard base.

While the custard is chilling, crunch up the rest of the cereal and mix it with melted chocolate.

This is pretty good by itself!

As the ice cream comes out of the machine, mix in the big glob of chocolate and cereal. It should still be warm enough to split off into smaller clusters and then firm up to crunchy chips.

This is one of the top three flavors I have ever made! The crunch inside the chocolate is an unexpected treat and the cinnamon is bright and spicy.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch Ice Cream

Ingredients

2
Cups Milk
2
Cups Cream
6
Egg Yolks
1/3
Cup Sugar
1
Box Cinnamon Toast Crunch
1
Teaspoon Cinnamon
2
Cups Bittersweet Chocolate Chips

Directions

  • 1 Split the box of cereal in half. Soak one half in the milk for about an hour. Strain.
  • 2 Warm the milk with the sugar and cinnamon. When it starts to lightly steam, pour about 1/2 cup into the egg yolks while whisking. Add this mixture back into the pot and heat slowly, stirring constantly until the mixture coats the back of a spoon. Add the cream and chill until very cold.
  • 3 Crunch up the rest of the cereal into smaller pieces. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Pour the chocolate over the cereal and stir to coat everything.
  • 4 Freeze your custard base in an ice cream maker according to the instructions. When it is done, mix in your chocolate covered cereal. The large glob of cereal and chocolate should still be warm enough that it separates into smaller clusters, but the coldness of the ice cream will freeze these clusters into crunchy chocolate chips.
  • 5 If your ice cream comes out of the machine really melty, you might want to freeze it for a half hour or so before mixing in your chocolate covered cereal.
