Dark Chocolate Ice Cream
recipe from Dianne's Dishes
5 oz baking chocolate
1 pint of heavy cream
1 14oz can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 of 1 pint of half and half
1/4 cup sugar
In a sauce pan over medium heat, or in the microwave on low, melt chocolate with 1/2 of the heavy cream until completely smooth. Be careful and don't let it go too far or the chocolate will become grainy. Let cool completely.
Stir in sweetened condensed milk, half and half, the rest of the cream and sugar until smooth. Place mixture into your ice cream freezer and freeze according to your machine's directions. Once the ice cream has hit the soft serve stage you can serve immediately or you can place in an airtight container to harden further and make it more scoopable.
Notes: It is extremely important to let your mixture cool completely BEFORE you begin the freezing process or it most likely will not set up.
