Hot Cocoa Ice Cream

Ok so not exactly ice cream weather but I saw a Dryer's Seasonal Hot Cocoa Ice Cream and it sounded delicious so I decided to make my own! Sorry no process pictures this time. Both my camera batteries were dead. (Picture is in "soft serve" form...I will add one when it gets to hard form)

1/4 cup powdered unsweetened baking cocoa
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 tsp malted milk powder(not essential , but tasty)
1/4 cup water
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
2 eggs , beaten
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mini marshmallows

In a heavy sauce pan combine baking cocoa, sugar, salt , cinnamon, and malt powder, Stir in water.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.
Whisk in milk and heavy cream. Clip on a candy thermometer and heat to 150.
In a small bowl beat the eggs. When the milk mixture reaches 150 add about 1 cup to the eggs, whisking quickly. Add that back to the rest in the pan and heat to 170. Remove from heat, add vanilla and cool completely.  Chill in the fridge until very cold(overnight preferably).
Proceed with your ice cream maker per manufacturers instructions....adding 1 cup mini marshmallows when you get near the end of the cycle.

Dont have an ice cream maker??
