Beat the egg yolks and sugar until pale and fluffy, then whisk in the milk. Cook the mixture over a low heat, stirring continuously, until the custard is thick enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and leave to cool for 5 minutes. Mix the chocolate into the custard and stir until melted, then leave to cool and chill. Stir in the creme de menthe and mint crisps. Whisk the cream with the iced water until it forms soft peaks. Fold into the chocolate custard, then pour into a freezer container and freeze for about 1 hour until beginning to set. Turn out into a chilled bowl, whisk well, then return to the container and freeze until firm.
