Ingredients

1 cup whole milk, well chilled ¾ cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons instant espresso 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder 2 cups heavy cream, well chilled 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract ½ cup English toffee bits ½ cup mini chocolate morsels

Preparation

In a medium bowl, use a Cuisinart® Hand Mixer or a whisk to combine the milk, granulated sugar, espresso powder, and cocoa until dissolved, about 1 - 2 minutes on low speed. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate until ready to make ice cream. Assemble a Cuisinart® Automatic Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream, and Sorbet Maker with frozen chiller bowl. Turn the machine ON; pour mixture into freezer bowl, and let mix until thickened, about 25 - 30 minutes. Add the toffee bits and mini chocolate morsels during the last five minutes of mixing. The ice cream will have a soft creamy texture. If desired, transfer the ice cream to an airtight container and place in freezer until firm, about 2 hours to "ripen."
