I can't decide whether I like chai-spiced milk chocolate ice cream or not. It's very exotic tasting, and the spices really make their presence known, especially in the first few bites. But it might be a little too much, especially if you're expecting sweet-and-familiar milk chocolate.
The recipe is from one of my favorite ice cream books, Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones. Since I love chai (the drink), I was excited to try this recipe. Peppercorns, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and star anise are all infused in the base - you can detect hints of each as you eat the ice cream. And the milk chocolate imparts a wonderful texture. After eating several bites, the spiciness mellows; but even so, I'm on the fence about whether I like it or not. If you try it, let me know what you think!
