6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
2 cups milk
3 beaten egg yolks
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine 1 1/2 cups of the milk, egg yolks, and sugar in a double boiler. Cook slowly until mixture thickens. Meanwhile, melt chocolate with the other 1/2 cup of milk. Add to thickened milk-egg-sugar mixture. Cool. Add cream. Chill mixture 4 hours before making ice cream.
