Rocky Road Ice cream

I just made rocky road ice cream tonight and it turned out really well. Like, Matt said he would have thought he was eating premium store bought ice cream if he hadn't seen me make it. So I figured I'd write it down.

Rocky Road Ice Cream
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
3/4-1 C. coco powder (depending on how dark you like your chocolate)
1 C. heavy cream
1 3/4 C. whole milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. chopped pecans
1/2 C. mini-marshmallows

1. In a medium saucepan over low heat, mix sweetened condensed milk and coco powder until smooth and slightly thickened, about 5 min. Remove from heat, let cool slightly and mix in cream, milk, and vanilla. Put in the fridge and let it get cold.
2. Pour into ice cream canister and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Stir in nuts and marshmallows in the last few minutes.
3. Transfer to an airtight container and freeze for 5-6 hours (it will be too soft to eat right out of the ice cream maker).
