Chocolate Oreo Ice-Cream

I've been making alot of ice-cream recently ... unfortunately it has been so tasty I've eaten it before I've managed to photograph it.  
This is a basic custard based ice-cream, you don't have to add chocolate & you can add any biscuits, dried fruits or nuts to the mixture you fancy.

Makes about 1 pint

2 egg yolks
50g caster sugar
250ml milk
150ml double cream
100g plain chocolate
1 packet of Oreo cookie biscuits

Pour the milk into a saucepan and slowly heat until boiling point.  In a bowl beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale, add the hot milk whilst still beating.  Return the mixture to the pan and stir the mixture constantly until the mixture forms a film over the back of a wooden spoon.  Do not let it boil or it will separate.  Remove from the heat and add the chocolate, stir until melted and the mixture is smooth.  Add the cream and leave to cool.
Once the mixture is cooled pour into the ice-cream maker and add the broken biscuits.
