3 Cups heavy cream
3/4 cup half-and-half
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks (in addition)
3/4 Cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 Cup granular sugar substitute (Splenda)
1/4 Teaspoon salt
2 Teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 Teaspoon almond extract
Pour heavy cream into a heavy-bottomed 3-quart saucepan and place over medium heat. Allow to simmer but do not boil. Remove from heat and set aside. Save the half-and-half for later in the recipe.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs, yolks, cocoa powder, sugar substitute and salt. With an electric mixer on medium, beat until thickened and smooth, 2 to 3 minutes, scraping sides of bowl with a rubber spatula. Using a ladle, remove about a cup of the hot cream from the pan, and gradually whisk into egg mixture (this tempers the eggs so they won’t curdle). While whisking, pour tempered egg mixture into remaining cream in saucepan.
Place over medium heat and whisk until slightly thickened and coats the back of a wooden spoon; temperature should not go over 170°F.
Pour into a clean bowl, whisk in extracts and let stand until custard is cooled to room temperature, about 1 1/2 hours or place in a clean bowl set in a larger bowl filled with an ice water bath to chill quickly to room temperature. Refrigerate 2 hours, until well chilled, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to develop more flavor.
Freeze in ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s directions, adding the half-and-half through the top of the ice cream maker as the ice cream is being made. When freezing process is complete, serve immediately for soft serve ice cream, or for firm ice cream, place in an airtight container and freeze 2 to 4 hours or overnight. (Can be stored in the freezer up to 1 month, though Your Professor recommends storing your ice cream short-term in a cold refrigerator because it gets rock hard when frozen!) Makes about 1 quart; each serving = 1/2 cup.

The values you believe in, or do not believe in, may not be the first thing you turn to when thinking of your qualifications for college funding, but think again. If you define yourself as an atheist, secular humanist, or otherwise “free” thinker, there are benefactors who will support both those beliefs and your way through college.
