- To make the Malted Cookie Dough, in a large bowl, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and salt with a wooden spoon until a light paste forms.
- Add the heavy cream, molasses, corn syrup, and vanilla and stir until smooth.
- Sift in the toasted flour and malt powder, then mix until there are no lumps.
- Fold in the chocolate until evenly distributed.
- Spread the cookie dough evenly in a parchment-lined baking dish until it’s about ½-inch (1 cm) thick, then freeze until solid, about 1 hour.
- Cut the cookie dough into ½-inch (1 cm) cubes and freeze for later use. It keeps up to 1 month.
- To make the Molasses Vanilla Ice Cream Base, combine the sugar, dry milk powder, salt, and xanthan gum in a small bowl, and stir well.
- In a medium pot over medium heat, combine the milk, corn syrup, and molasses, whisking until combined. Add the sugar mixture and whisk vigorously until there are no lumps. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until the sugar is dissolved, then remove the pot from the heat.
