1. Place cream, milk and chocolate into a medium heavy-based saucepan. Heat, stirring, until the chocolate is melted and the mixture just starts to simmer.
2. Meanwhile beat egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until pale and thick. Once cream mixture is hot, slowly whisk half of the cream mixture into the egg mixture then pour back into the saucepan.
3. Return mixture back to a low heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until mixture has thickened and coats the back of the spoon.
4. Pour mixture into a heatproof bowl, cover and refrigerate until well chilled. Once chilled pour into ice cream bowl.
5. Set ice cream maker to ICE CREAM setting and churn.
6. Once mixture is frozen transfer to a freezer safe container and freezer for up to 1 week.
TIP: For a bigger chocolate treat add ¼ cup grated dark chocolate once machine specifies to add in mix-ins.
