i have a question for baskin and robbin

why does cookies n' cream ice cream only come with a vanilla base?
everyone one i know loves chocolate and oreo's.
why not put them together so we don't have to??
these seems like a pretty reasonable request, don't you think?

i know they carry it as a limited edition flavor every once and awhile but come on.
thank goodness i have an ice cream maker for emergencies such as this one.

>>alert alert<<
this recipe that contains **raw eggs**
so children, women pregnant WITH children, the elderly and people already sick can not participate in this exercise.

hope you fall into the bracket of people that can eat this stuff because its goooood.
for those of you that can't have's just okay. no big deal. eh.

Chocolate Cookies n' Cream Ice Cream

2/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 2/3 cups heavy cream (i have also used half & half with very good results)
1 sleeve of Oreo cookies, about 15-20 cookies crushed coarsely

In large bowl, stir together sugar and cocoa.
Add egg yolks and blend with electric mixer.
Mix until sugar is dissolved.
Add cream a little at a time, beating well after each addition.
Cover mixture and chill in refrigerator for about 1 hour.
Remove mixture from refrigerator and freeze in canister of ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.
Once the mixture is frozen but still soft, transfer a little less than half of it to a freezer safe storage container.
Add half of the Oreo pieces and fold cookies and ice cream together gently with a rubber spatula.
Add the remaining ice cream and Oreo piece and fold once more until just combined.
Freeze overnight or until completely hardened.
If you can't wait, dig into your soft serve ice cream!

Store in freezer for up to 5 days.
