Basic Chocolate Ice Cream

This is a basic chocolate ice cream. You can add anything–cookie dough, crushed Oreos, chocolate chips, chopped candy, etc, to make specialty ice cream in the last few minutes of making. Makes about 1 1/2 quarts, so suits a 2-quart ice cream maker. Can be doubled for a larger ice cream maker.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1 1/2 quarts

Prep Time: 20 minutes   Cook Time: 20 minutes  


6 ounces semi-sweet chocolate

2 cups milk

3 beaten egg yolks

1/2 cup sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 cup cream


Combine 1 1/2 cups of the milk, egg yolks, and sugar in a double boiler. Cook slowly until mixture thickens. Meanwhile, melt chocolate with the other 1/2 cup of milk. Add to thickened milk-egg-sugar mixture. Cool. Add cream. Chill mixture 4 hours before making ice cream.

To add candies, chocolate chips, etc, use about 1 1/2 cups, added in the last few minutes of making the ice cream. To make cookie dough ice cream, when making cookie dough, separate out a portion of the mixture to make without eggs to use in your ice cream.

    Sounds yummy! When do you add the vanilla? With the cream?
