  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together cream, milk, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture just to a boil.
  • While the cream mixture is heating, use an immersion blender to whip the egg yolks and white sugar until it’s pale and thick.
  • Whisking the cream mixture constantly, slowly pour in the egg mixture until it’s well-combined. (I used the immersion blender for this as well.)
  • Stir, and allow the mixture to thicken for a couple minutes. Strain the mixture to eliminate any clumps and place in an airtight container. Put it into the refrigerator for a few hours, until completely chilled. (If in a hurry, place in the freezer for 1 hour. Don’t forget about it!)
  • Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into an electric ice cream maker and churn for 20+ minutes to your desired consistency. Finally pour in the pretzel pieces and churn another minute.
  • Serve immediately or place in the freezer to harden.
