I am sorry to show you this pie but on the other hand I know you will like it! This is another favorite pie that I make that everyone loves! It is full of butterscotch and chocolate chips plus pecans too and it great with vanilla ice cream drizzled with chocolate, butterscotch and  or caramel sauce!

Butterscotch and chocolate are great together, I love them both, especially together! This is the easiest pie to make, so I hope  you will make one, I know you will love it!

1 – 9 inch pie crust
1/2 cup butter softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
½ cup al purpose flour
¾ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup butterscotch chips

Place in the oven and bake for 25 minutes depending on your oven until the center is set. The top should be light brown and a toothpick inserted comes out fairly clean.

Remove from oven and allow to cool about 30 minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite vanilla ice cream and drizzle with chocolate, butterscotch and  or caramel sauce!! 🙂 I made this pie this morning and there are only 3 small slices left!

Oh My Gosh…MMM… this dark chocolate ice cream is the best ever! The taste is unbelievably rich, silky, creamy and taste like a chocolate truffle! The is the best homemade chocolate ice cream I have every had!

And now the bad news: it takes a week to make. I know, I know, why do I have to wait 5 days, I just spend an hour and a half making the custard, is it really necessary to wait that long?!? Let me tell you it is worth the planning and waiting! 🙂 Here is how it breaks down;

Day 1  and 2 – make custard and then chill in fridge for 2 days

End of day 2 – make ice cream

Day 3, 4 and 5 – freeze for 3 days

Let’s get started!!

This is the ST. JOHN DARK CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM recipe – from ‘Beyond Nose to Tail’ by Fergus Henderson and Justin Piers Gellatly

Ingredients
7 oz. dark chocolate 72 – 74% caca0, finely chopped
2 cups plus 2 tablespoons whole milk
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
6 large egg yolks
13 tablespoons caster sugar, divided
1/4 cup heavy cream
Serving size: 1 quart

dark chocolate-ice-cream-ingredients
This recipe took me nearly and hour and a half to finish, not including making the ice cream in the ice cream maker! Take your time, read thru the recipe several times so you don’t make a mistake.

Melt Chocolate, chop chocolate and place into bowl. Then melt the chocolate either in a bowl over a simmering pot of water or in a microwave in 45 second burst but be sure to do this at 50% power. I prefer the microwave, you will need to also stir between heating’s until smooth. The set aside until needed, it will cool slightly.

Heat Milk mixture – Heat the milk and the cocoa in a medium heavy saucepan over medium heat, whisk to blend the cocoa into the milk and bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.

Mix egg yolks – Using your mixer, whip the egg yolks and 7 tablespoons caster sugar on high until thick, pale color and thick ribbons form. This will take about 3 minutes.

Temper the eggs by whisking constantly and gradually adding the hot milk cocoa mixture until combined.

Combine egg mixture and chocolate  – Return this mixture to your saucepan and whisk in the melted chocolate until combined. Place saucepan on low heat until slightly thickened and a thermometer reaches 175°F which should take about 5minutes. Stir constantly to prevent sticking, especially in the corners.

Transfer the chocolate custard to a bowl and place over an ice bath to cool. Stir until custard is cool.

Making the caramel – Now you are ready to make the caramel, bring the remaining 6 tablespoons of caster sugar and 2 tablespoons of water to a boil in a small heavy saucepan over medium-high heat, stiring only until the sugar is dissolved. After sugar is dissolved, only occasionally swirl pan, do not stir until a dark amber color forms, about 5 minutes. Now you are ready to add the cream, be careful because the mixture will bubble.

Remove from heat and whisk caramel into the chocolate custard. Then strain into a large container that will be used in the fridge for a couple of days while the mixture infuses all the flavors.

Above, low boil on medium Be careful stirring, (be sure to constantly stir) you don’t want to splash the HOT fudge sauce onto your fingers or hand. After boiling for 3 minutes, remove completely from the heat and add 1 tsp pure vanilla extract and stir to incorporate.

hot fudge syrup recipe

While the chocolate syrup is hot pour into a glass container. I use the small wide mouth Ball mason jars.

homemade hot fudge sauce

Using the wide mouth mason jar will make it easier to heat and gives you easy access with a spoon to remove the chocolate syrup when you are ready to eat! A jar of my homemade hot fudge sauce makes a great gift too. 🙂 Be sure to store the hot fudge sauce in the fridge until you are ready to eat. As it cools it will become really thick. All you need to do is heat it in the microwave to get it hot and ready to eat! Now to make the cake, I use Duncan Hines cake mix and just follow the instructions on the back of the box.

Use a 9 X 13 inch sheet cake pan. All ingredients mixed and ready to go into the oven.

Maybe you prefer only the cake and hot fudge, it’s just as delicious! 🙂 You can also use this hot fudge sauce to for fondue, dipping fruit, strawberries, pineapple, marshmallows, etc., you name it!!

to die for hot fudge cake

When I make this recipe I will buy the Mayfield vanilla ice cream in the rectangle carton to make it easy to slice the ice cream. Cut you a piece of cake, slice it in half, cut a piece of ice cream to fit, then you are ready to cover with the hot fudge sauce! Add whip cream too! homemade hot fudge sauce homemade hot fudge sauce hot chocolate fudge sauce

If you don’t want to do the cake, it’s great with just ice cream! Or over brownies or cup cakes, be creative.
