Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
Printed from Jenn's Food Journey, adapted from The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz


2 1/4 cup heavy cream or half & half
6 Tablespoons unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
pinch of salt
6oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips (you could honestly leave these out if you just want plain old chocolate ice cream, it will still be SO good!!)


In a large saucepan, whisk the cream, cocoa powder, sugar and salt together. Whisking frequently, heat until the mixture comes to a full, rolling boil. Remove the pan from the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Whisk until the chocolate melts completely, then add the milk and vanilla. Carefully transfer the mixture to a blender and blend for 30 seconds, or until smooth.

Chill the mixture thoroughly and then churn in your ice cream maker according to the manufactures instructions. Add the chocolate chips in the last few minutes of the churning. If you don't have an ice cream maker, check out David's site for directions on just how to do it without one! Enjoy!
