One of my favorite things to eat as a kid was licorice ice cream. Now I make it at home.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 6
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • dash salt
  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp licorice flavoring or 113 grams (4 oz) black licorice candy
  • 2 cups cream
  1. Into a medium saucepan, add the milk, sugar, salt and licorice candy if using and heat to nearly boiling (and the licorice candy is melted).
  2. While milk is heating, whisk egg yolks til frothy.
  3. While whisking briskly, slowly add ⅓ of the hot milk and then add the egg mixture back into the pan of hot milk.
  4. Reheat the mixture until the custard coats the back of a wooden spoon - don't overcook or you'll get scrambled eggs.
  5. Remove from heat and add in licorice flavoring.
  6. Chill for several hours or overnight. Add in the cream and freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's directions.
