Easy chocolate ice cream

Description

An easy way to prepare your own chocolate ice cream. This alternative recipe uses Hershey's chocolate milk, so no cooking is necessary.

Ingredients

5 egg
6 c milk (chocolate milk)
2 cn evaporated milk (sweetened, condensed milk)
3 oz chocolate (semi sweet, melted)
1 c sugar
1 1⁄2 t vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. Whisk the eggs together, then add the sugar and blend them together.
  2. Pour in the milk, both condensed and chocolate, and stir gently until everything is smooth and uniform.
  3. Add in the melted chocolate. Once everything is well blended, pour it into your ice cream machine and freeze overnight.

Notes

Since the melting point of most chocolate is about body temperature a few seconds in a double boiler will do. Avoid using the microwave, unless you can control the power to melt the chocolate very slowly without changing its composition.

You can experiment with the recipe by using more egg yolks and fewer whites. This leads to a slight color change and a thicker, creamier result.
