Once you have tasted homemade ice cream, there is no going back. It is so much more economical, and downright yummy! This step by step recipe shows you how easy it is to make your own decadent chocolate ice cream.
I normally do not make ice cream that requires cooking on the stove before freezing because it makes the process much longer. But I make an exception for this particular recipe.
I have yet to find a better chocolate ice cream.
This recipe’s proportions will typically make about 2 quarts of finished ice cream, however this is a bit denser so you will probably end up with closer to 1 1/2 quart.
I like to make this when I have a little extra lead time before wanting to eat it. Sometimes I will make the mixture and then just let it chill overnight. I will throw it in the ice cream maker in the morning and by dinner time it is set up just how I like it.
If you like the consistency of “soft serve”, it will be ready much sooner. I prefer it firmer, so I give it a few hours in the freezer before serving.
