”Researchers have discovered that chocolate produced some of the same
reactions in the brain as marijuana. The researchers also discovered
other similarities between the two, but can't remember what they are.”

Grand Marnier Mocha Ice Cream
The George and Piret Munger Cookbook
by George and Piret Munger, 1985,
Houghton Miflin Company


 9 egg yolks
1 cup sugar
4 cups heavy cream
1 pound best-quality European
semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup strong, freshly brewed
mocha coffee plus
2 tablespoons coffee grounds
from the pot
1/2 cup Grand Marnier

 Beat egg yolks and sugar with a whisk until they are thick and lemon-
colored and mixture falls from the whisk in an undulating ribbon.
In a medium saucepan scald 3 cups heavy cream until bubbles form
on the edge of the pan. Stir the hot cream mixture into the egg mixture.
Stir very quickly with whisk so eggs do not cook. Pour cream mixture
back into the saucepan. Heat mixture over high heat 1 to 2 minutes,
whisking constantly. (If you beat the mixture furiously, it will thicken
without curdling the egg yolks - or - cook the custard in top of double
boiler, whisking constantly, until mixture thickens.) When custard has
tthickened pout it into a clean bowl and place bowl in pan of cool
water.  Stir the custard periodically until it is cool.
In double boiler over medium high heat combine chocolate, coffee
and coffee grounds and heat until chocolate melts completely. Stir
the chocolate mixture into the cool (but not cold) custard and stir
to blend thoroughly. Set aside to cool to room temperature. When
mixture is cool, stir in Grand Marnier and the remaining 1 cup heavy
cream; stir to blend. Chill. Freeze the mixture in an ice cream maker
according to the manufacturer's directions.
