What You’ll Learn In This Recipe
One of my goals in this series is to teach you more about the science behind ice cream. In this recipe you’ll learn:
- The ingredient that makes ice cream super creamy, rich, and smooth
- How to properly store your ice cream (so it doesn’t get icy)
- What’s the best at home ice cream maker
What Is Moose Tracks Ice Cream?
The original Moose Tracks ice cream (the one you typically buy at the store) is made with vanilla ice cream. It also has fudge swirls and mini peanut butter cups sprinkled in throughout.
This recipe, while sticking to many of the same ideas as the original moose tracks, has a few twists. This homemade version has chocolate ice cream (because we always need more chocolate). In addition, we use ganache instead of fudge. Very similar, but made slightly different.
Milk/Heavy Whipping Cream: These are the ingredients that make ice cream, ice cream. Butterfat, as milk and cream are called, add fat. Fat plays a huge role in the texture of the ice cream.
The key in any good ice cream recipe is having just the right amount of fat to get a creamy, smooth ice cream mouthfeel. Too little butterfat and you’ll make sherbet or sorbet. Too much butterfat and it will leave your mouth feeling greasy.
Don’t worry, this recipe has just the right amount of each! Just make sure you don’t try to make any substitutions.
Egg Yolks: All French-style custard based ice creams have eggs. That’s what contributes to the rich flavor. The thing about adding eggs to your ice cream base is that they need to be heated to kill any potentially harmful bacteria. This process is called ‘tempering’ and it’s a way to slowly and carefully heat the eggs without scrambling them.
Granulated Sugar: Ice cream always needs sugar to add sweetness. While there are many different types of sugar that can be used in ice cream, this recipe uses granulated sugar. The sugar also helps lower the freezing point of the water. This helps prevent the entire ice cream base from completely freezing up.
Reese’s/Ganache: Of course we need our mix-ins because that’s what makes the iconic Moose tracks ice cream. The ganache is homemade (don’t worry the recipe is super simple).
Tools & Equipment
The main piece of equipment you’ll need is an ice cream maker. There are many different ice cream machines on the market, but here are my top three choices:
Cuisinart: This machine is really affordable (under $100) and is great for space efficiency. In addition, it’s simple to use and would be a great machine for ice cream novices.
KitchenAid: A great option if you already have a KitchenAid mixer and don’t want to add another small appliance to your collection. Because of the high speed of the mixer, it makes really fluffy ice cream.
Whynter: This is the most expensive machine, but offers the best quality. The best part about this machine is that you can make multiple batches back to back because there is no pre-freezing of the bowl (like for the other two machines).
