240ml (1 cup) milk
480ml (2 cups) double cream

135g (2/3 cup) sugar
6 egg yolks

2. Reheat the mixture in the saucepan to return it to a steaming point. Remove from the heat, cover and let it stand for another 15 minutes.

3. Pass the mixture through a fine mesh sieve, pressing to squeezing the milk and cream out of the mint leaves. Return the milk and cream to the saucepan and add the sugar. Heat until just steaming

4. Beat the egg yolks in a large heatproof bowl. Gradually pour the hot mixture into the egg yolks, whisking continually. Pour back into the saucepan and heat until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Pour the custard into a large bowl and mix in the remaining cream. Leave to cool and refrigerate.

5. Churn the ice cream in an ice cream machine. Once frozen, Pour some of the ice cream into a container and spread out to form another layer. Drizzle over some of the melted chocolate and stir to break up the chocolate into chips. Continue layering ice cream and chocolate and mixing until all the ice cream and chocolate has been used.
