Chocolate Malted Ice Cream

As a child, I helped crank out gallons of homemade ice cream. And thanks to this recipe, I'm carrying on the tradition in my family. We're chocolate fans-so you can imagine the reaction when we spoon up this fudgy summer treat.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 15 min. + chilling Process: 20 min./batch + freezing
  • Makes
    2 quarts


  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chocolate malted milk powder
  • 5 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup malted milk balls, coarsely crushed
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract


  • In a large saucepan, heat milk to 175°; stir in sugar and malted milk powder until dissolved. Whisk a small amount of the hot mixture into the eggs. Return to pan. Cook over low heat until mixture is just thick enough to coat a metal spoon and a thermometer reads at least 160°, stirring constantly. Do not allow to boil. Remove from heat immediately.
  • Quickly transfer to a large bowl; place bowl in a pan of ice water. Stir gently and occasionally for 2 minutes. Stir in cream, malted milk balls and vanilla. Press plastic wrap onto surface of custard. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  • Fill cylinder of ice cream freezer two-thirds full; freeze according to the manufacturer’s directions. (Refrigerate remaining mixture until ready to freeze.) When ice cream is frozen, transfer to a freezer container, allowing headspace for expansion. Freeze 2-4 hours or until firm. Repeat with remaining ice cream mixture.

    This has a very mild chocolate malt flavor. I tried again with 1 cup of ovaltine as another poster suggested and the flavor was still very mild. Don't get me wrong - it was delicious and super creamy - but if you are really looking for a chocolate malt flavor I would try another recipe.

    As is the recipe is 4 stars. Add in another 1/2 cup of malted milk powder and it's a 5. It's a very light chocolate taste with 1 cup so I can't imagine there is much chocolate at all with 1/2 cup. Otherwise it's great. I left out the milk balls second time around.
