root beer gelato

We had some whole milk left over from the triple bypass cake I made for richards birthday (aka tres leches cake). So I made some root beer and left over halloween candy GELATO. Anna thought it was way cool. I spilled some on her pants oops.

Gelato recipe:
2 cups whole milk
5 egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 pinch salt

Bring the milk and pinch of salt to a boil. Meanwhile wisk eggs and sugar in a bowl. Once boiling, stir in the milk 1/4 cup at a time into the egg and sugar bowl. Once its all in there pour it back into the pan and cook over low heat 20 minutes. Dont boil it. Pour into a bowl, add flavor (i stirred in 3 hersheys bars in 1/2 and root beer extract in 1/2). Refrigerate until cool (i did overnight). freeze in your ice cream machine!

I hope richard makes it home before its gone..........
