Chocolate Sambuca Gelato

From EatingWell:  January/February 1991

This Italian-inspired dessert is velvety in texture. Milk powder added to the mix inhibits the formation of ice crystals.

8 servings | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 2 hours (including freezing time)

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Whisk together whole eggs, egg yolks, cocoa, sugar, corn syrup, milk powder and 1/2 cup milk in a large bowl.
  2. Heat remaining 2 1/2 cups milk in a heavy saucepan until steaming. Gradually whisk the hot milk into the egg mixture. Return the mixture to the pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon for about 5 minutes, or until the custard is thick enough to coat a spoon. Do not boil, or the custard will curdle.
  3. Remove from heat, strain through a fine sieve into a clean bowl or immediately transfer to a clean bowl. Stir in sambuca. Cool, cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Freeze in an ice cream maker, following manufacturer's instructions.
