Chocolate Custard Ice Cream

I had no idea of making this ice cream but when I make the Brooklyn Blackout Cake, I had about 1 cup of chocolate custard left over. So I decided to use it while making chocolate ice cream. And it turned out to be an awesome idea! 
This custard turned a simple chocolate ice cream into an exotic ice cream! Everybody loved this ice cream so much that now a days, whenever I make chocolate ice cream, I make the custard exclusively to add to it!
