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.
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.
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.)
When done, transfer to a freezer container and "ripen" for at least 4 hours.
