This was a very easy recipe. When I mixed the cream chocolate mixture into the pan liquid, it was lumpy. I strained it through a fine mesh strainer pressing the chocolate lumps through into a liquid.
This is the best chocolate ice cream recipe I've found yet! To me, it tasted like frozen hot chocolate. I stirred in some chopped chocolate chips at the end of the cycle since I was making this as a gift for a chocoholic, but I think next time I will stir in nuts for myself, or maybe even strawberry pieces. Will definitely be making this again!
Very tasty! We loved this and will definitely be making it again. Love the intense chocolate flavor. =)
Delicious!! First time making ice cream and it was super easy. Wonderful flavor!
Chocolate overload! I almost think it is too much chocolate, but I did LOVE the flavor of using the dark chocolate.
I agree with all of the others that this is a great recipe. Very rich & chocolaty...the description likening it to "fudge" isn't far off. Notes: 1. I added a splash of coffee liquor, primarily to help the refreeze texture consistency. This also seemed to subtly enhance the flavor. 2. On a follow-up batch I added toasted coconut and pecans to the mixture (toward the end of mixing in the ice cream maker). I'm not convinced the coconut added much, but the nuts were a wonderful addition that helped cut the richness and added nice texture. 3. I'm a lot more likely to have half&half in the fridge than I am heavy cream. The second time I made this, I "rebalanced" with 2% and h&h - just do the math to make sure the average fat % and the amount of liquid is the same. This turned out identical to the 1st batch. In my example it's 1.6 cups h&h, 1.2 cups 2%...the recipe is forgiving when you eyeball those amounts. Reserve 1/3 cup of the h&h for step 2, and use the rest in step 1.
So awesome! Tastes like the french silk ice cream I like to buy! I used only 2 oz baking chocolate the second time to try to get 2 recipes out of one bar in the future and it tasted just as good.
Excellent ice cream recipe - VERY chocolately and sure to satisfy the most intense chocolate craving you may have. They should rename this one as "Fudge Ice Cream" because that's exactly what it tastes like after the ice cream has a chance to solidify and really develop in the freezer. Definitely an easy recipe to make and tastes better than a lot of store bought ice creams - I would absolutely make again when I have a chocolate craving. I'm really looking forward to making the recipe again in the summer and serving with strawberries and some whipped cream on a nice evening - Enjoy!
Double Chocolate Ice Cream. I can tell you it's creamy, rich and very chocolaty. Hubby can tell you it's delicious. I think his word was 'fantastic.' http://bit.ly/xCATpG
