Susan's notes for this recipe:
This rich and creamy chocolate ice cream has a hint of Vietnamese Cinnamon and a dash of cayenne to give it an unexpected "kick". The addition on mini chocolate chips gives it that added burst of chocolate flavor.

Directions

1
In a large bowl, combine the pudding mix, cocoa, sugar, cinnamon and cayenne. Mix well and then add the half & half, heavy cream, milk and vanilla. Mix well with a wire whick. Mixture will be slightly thick.
2
Using your ice cream freezer, follow manufacturer's directions and freeze mixture until thick. About two minutes before ice cream is done, add the mini chocolate chips.(Please note: depending on size of the cream can in your ice cream freezer, you may have left over ice cream "batter". If so, refrigerate and freeze later.)
3
When done, transfer to a freezer container and "ripen" for at least 4 hours.

I keep both Saigon and Vietnamese cinnamon in my spice pantry all the time.

I get "Spice Islands Ground Saigon Cinnamon", made from Vietnam’s famous cassia trees, which translates into a richer, sweeter cinnamon with red-hot-candy-like flavor.
Ground Saigon Cinnamon also will enhance the Southern Peach Cobbler, which is even more decadent when served with a scoop of ice cream or topped with whipped cream or a splash of half-and-half.

Spice Islands Saigon Cinnamon in a kitchen-friendly bottle, available exclusively at Sam's Club.....which is not true anymore. I usually buy mine at TJ MAXX stores.
