You can make your own and even put your own twist on the classic by using a favorite cereal. But for this bloggers sake lets start with the classic and work from there, because trust me when I say this is an ice cream recipe you'll keep forever.
1/4 tsp Salt
8 egg yolks
1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Frosted Flakes (or your favorite cereal) for topping
3/4 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Cups Frosted Flakes (or your favorite cereal)
2 1/2 Cups Heavy Cream
3 Cups Half & Half
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Cover and let steep over night.
Strain the soggy cereal from the milk mixture.
Make sure are left with 5 cups of liquid. Some of the milk will have been absorbed by the cereal, replace what you need with whole milk.
Toast cereal at 300F for 15 minutes, this helps release more flavor.
Pour cereal milk into a saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and set aside.
Whisk together egg yolks and brown sugar until thick (about 2 minutes). Next stream in the hot cereal milk into the egg yolk/sugar mixture, while continuously mixing. Add the vanilla extract and salt.
If you are making soft serve:
Allow this mixture to chill thoroughly, preferably overnight so the flavors fully develop!
Churn the ice cream mixture in your kitchen aid ice cream attachment.
If you are making NO CHURN ice cream:
Pour ice cream mixture into a deep vessel, cover and freeze until solid.
Serve ice cream in large scoops and top with cereal! YUM
