Very Chocolate Ice Cream, Kids’ Friendly Edition


Chocolate Ice cream.JPG

Now before I move on with my post I have to put a warning.
WARNING! This ice cream is totally chocolatey and decadent. In no case should you eat it, unless you are a true chocolate lover!
There, now I feel that I have warned you all and you won’t spank me for not telling you in time lol.
When I saw this ice cream at King Arthur’s Baking Banter, I immediately understood that this is the one for me and my son. My husband is another story, he prefers as I told you before non-chocolate sweets. But I and my son are both in the chocolate mood all the time. As I was telling you when I saw this recipe I immediately loved it, not only because it contains a lot of chocolate, but also because it does not contain any heavy cream.

Heavy cream is good, very good, but we must consume it in moderation, because it increases cholesterol. Now please tell me, who can be moderate when it comes to ice cream? Not me and certainly not my son.
So, that’s the reason why I put the kids’ friendly edition on the title. You can consume it and your children can consume it without regrets and fear.

Whisk in the milk.

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat. Whisk constantly as you don’t want anything to stick at the bottom of the pan.
Remove the pan from heat and add the chocolate chunks.
Stir until it is melted completely and incorporated to the mix.
Pour the mixture to a glass bowl and place a plastic wrap on top so as not to form a skin.

Refrigerate until it is completely chilled; overnight it is even better.
Next day pour the batter into your ice cream maker and make it ice cream according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
When it starts to thicken you can add the alcohol if you want it. We add alcohol so as to prevent the ice cream from becoming rock hard.
I didn’t do it since it was going to be consumed by a child.

    I love dark chocolate… the darker it is, the better! Chocolate ice cream is even better… since ice cream melts, I don’t count it as calories. So bad, right? But whatever, it is one of life’s simple pleasures and it’s even better homemade. This decadent ice cream makes me wish I had an ice cream maker and a son to share my ice cream with.

  91. 47
  92. You and your son is just like me and my son. We love chocolate like crazy (he probably has my gene)! This ice cream looks so good. More chocolatey the better it is…and that’s always the truth in chocolate! YUM!!! =)
