Rich Chocolate Ice Cream

Pin It

Last summer I bought a Cuisinart ice cream maker.  I had only made a simple vanilla recipe, but tonight, I wanted to try a chocolate recipe.  It's definitely very rich, almost like a Dutch chocolate flavor.  The recipe is adapted from Cuisinart's recipe book.  It tastes really good with a dollop of peanut butter~!  It yields about 5 cups, 10 1/2 cup servings.

3/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
dash of salt
1 cup milk
2 cups heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a blender, combine the cocoa powder, sugar, brown sugar, salt, milk, heavy cream, and vanilla.  I used my Vitamix blender, & it only took less than 10 seconds before the mixture got super thick, like the consistency of pudding.  (I like this method better than mixing it together with a mixer, as the powder will go all over the place! :( )

Let sit in fridge for about an hour before spooning into Cuisinart's frozen freezer bowl, following the directions from the manufacturer.  It should be done about 15-20 minutes.  If you can wait and want a firmer texture, place ice cream in a freezer safe container with a lid for about 2 hours.  Enjoy!
