Bittersweet Chocolate Ice Cream
This is homemade chocolate ice cream that is so chocolaty, that it would be hard to find one that is quite so rich.
So, if you like an ice cream that slaps you in the mouth and says "Chocolate!" than this is for you.
This is Philadelphia- style ice cream. Meaning it is entirely cream based. It has no eggs in it.
You will need an ice cream freezer for this.
1 quart heavy whipping cream
1 cup sugar
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate, chopped or grated
2/3 cup cocoa powder, preferably Dutch processed
In a 3 quart saucepan heat the cream to boiling.
When it has reached the boiling point, turn the heat down to low.
Add the sugar, chocolate, and cocoa powder.
Stir constantly until everything is blended together and smooth.
Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Pour into your ice cream freezer and freeze according to the directions.
Makes 1 quart of rich chocolate ice cream.
I love eating mine sprinkled with cashews.
