Lucky Charms are all about a high marshmallow to cereal ratio. So why not improve your odds be separating them out?
This is what I am talking about.
The secret to this recipe is soaking the milk in cereal so that it has that cereal milk flavor.
Fresh out of the ice cream maker.
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups Lucky Charms cereal
1/3 cup sugar
4 eggs yolks
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup Lucky Charms marshmallows
Soak 1 cup of cereal in milk for 10 minutes. Drain the cereal from the milk and put milk in a pot with the sugar over medium heat. In a separate bowl, whip the egg yolks. Just as the milk is beginning to simmer, stir it into egg yolk bowl, half cup by half cup, stirring continuously. Add the egg yolk mixture back into the pot on the stove slowly. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens into a custard and coast the back of a spoon. Remove from heat and pour into a separate bowl. Add the heavy cream and vanilla. Cool in an ice bath or in the refrigerator. When mixture is cool, pour it into the ice cream machine and turn. When you've reach the consistency you want, stir the Lucky Charms marshmallows and remaining half cup of cereal in by hand.
