Home Made Chocolate Ice Cream (Take Two)Posted: June 16, 2011
I caved, I bought an Ice Cream maker. It was soooo worth it!! Never again do I have to worry about home made ice cream forming ice crystals during the making process. Now, all I have to do is hit a switch and tada! Beautiful, creamy, delicious and amazing homemade ice cream, right at my fingertips. It’s quite magical, actually.

You will need:
1 cup of whole milk (I used 1%)
1/2 cup of sugar
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, broken into 1/2 inch pieces (I used only 4 ounces and it turned out great!)
2 cups heavy cream (I used half and half)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Heat the milk until it is just bubbling. In a blender, pulse the sugar and chocolate until the chocolate is finely chopped. Add the hot milk; process until well blended and smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and let chocolate mixture cool completely (2 hrs in fridge). Next, stir in cream and vanilla. Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and let run until ice cream thickens, about 20 to 25 mins. Serve immediately. Enjoy!!
