Ben & Jerry's Heath Ice Cream

OK, sorry I didn't get a picture of the actually ice cream.. it actually went that FAST! So, this ice cream was so creamy. Once it was finished it did taste a lot like Ben & Jerry's BUT Brad and I are not big vanilla fans. So, I put in 1/2 cup peanut butter and 1/4 cup chocolate sauce to add some flavor. The chunks of heath were so good. You could always make the vanilla and add other candy bars, oreos, fruit, ect. to add more flavor. Be ready because it's super creamy and rich.. Thank you Ben and Jerry for giving us a reason to love ice cream so much!


4 Heath Bars
2 lg Eggs
3/4 c Sugar
2 c Heavy or whipping cream
1 c Whole wilk
2 ts Vanilla


1. Using a sharp knife, cut the candy bars into 1/2 to 1 inch chunks. You should have about 1 cup. Place the chucks in a bowl, cover and freeze. Whisk the egg in a mixing bowl until lihgt and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue to whisk until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream, milk, vanilla, and whisk to blend. Tranfer the mixture to ice cream maker and freeze following manufactorer's instructions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done) add the candy, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready. Makes generous 1 quart.
