Very Chocolate Ice Cream
We just got an ice cream maker last week!!! It's a Cuisinart 2-quart capacity countertop variety, which is the largest size I could find that didn't require ice and rock salt for making the ice cream.
So far I've made the vanilla recipe from their included booklet, as well as the vanilla yogurt. The ice cream was wonderful, the yogurt tasty but not nearly as good as the ice cream (go figure, must be the 17 less grams of fat per serving). For having guests this weekend, I decided to make some chocolate ice cream as well.
This recipe caught my eye off of Allrecipes and with all the positive reviews, I knew I had to make it.
In all seriousness, it is one of the best things I have ever eaten. I'm not even kidding. Even Grant agrees, and he's pretty picky about homemade ice cream, texturewise. It's the perfect amount of chocolaty goodness, creamy and smooth melt-in-your mouth delectableness. Everyone loved it.
Note: This amount filled up my 2-quart ice cream maker to full capacity. If you have a smaller machine, please decrease the ingredients! The link below to Allrecipes takes you to the recipe itself, and they have an awesome feature on their site that calculates different amount of servings for you. The original recipe was for 8 servings - I changed it to 12 for our machine, which was perfect.
