Irish Cream and Kahlua Chocolate Ice-Cream

My husband makes the best homemade ice-cream. This is a very rich and creamy adult chocolate ice-cream, with the smooth taste of Kahlua and Irish Cream Liqueur. It's a great treat anytime of the year, and is wonderful served as a float or milkshake.

Add the Kahlua

And the Irish Cream Liqueur

Just out of the churner and ready for the freezer


2 eggs, beaten
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 pint organic heavy cream
1 cup organic 1/2 and 1/2
1/3 cup Kahlua
1/2 cup Irish Cream Liqueur
6 heaping tablespoons cocoa
2 handfuls chopped pecans (optional)

In a large mixing bowl whisk eggs until well blended. Add sugar and beat well. Add heavy cream and 1/2 and 1/2 stirring to mix well. Stir in Kahlua and Irish Cream Liqueur.

Transfer mixture to a large sauce pan; add cocoa and heat over low to medium heat, mixing well until cocoa is all blended in and mixture is smooth. This may take up to 30 minutes. Do not boil.

Remove from heat, pour into mixing bowl and chill at least 1 hour in your refrigerator.

Add mixture to ice cream maker and churn according to manufacturer's directions. Put pecan pieces in during the last 10 minutes of churning.

Freeze immediately.

NOTE - Mixture may take longer to churn due to alcohol content.
