Roasted Hazelnut Ice Cream

This past weekend we went to Vermont to visit family. Since our children were well behaved, we decided to take them to tour an ice cream factory. I know the children thought it was neat but I know my husband loved it. Since my husband believes there is never enough ice cream in the house, I made some homemade ice cream of our own. I can tell you the factory didn't offer this flavor. It is so good.
Roasted Hazelnut Ice Cream
4 egg yolk
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup hazelnuts, roasted

In a medium saucepan, mix the egg yolks, sugar, 2 cups heavy cream over medium low heat.
Stir the mixture constantly until the mixture reaches 160 degrees F.
Remove the mixture from heat and add the remaining 1 cup heavy cream with the vanilla extract. Stir until well incorporated.
Pour the mixture through a strainer. 
Refrigerate the mixture for 1 hour to chill. 
Once chilled, add the mixture into an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions.
When the mixture is soft serve consistency, add the chocolate chips and hazelnuts.
Fold the mixture into a container. Place plastic wrap touching the ice cream before sealing with a tight cover. 
Place in the freezer for several hours until hardened.
