Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Today my children and my granddaughter made chocolate ice cream. They went to the store to buy the ingredients and they all help make this delicious, creamy, and rich chocolate ice cream. I asked them for the recipe which they followed from the instruction and recipe booklet that came with the ice cream maker. I adjusted the sugar to just 1/3 cup instead of 1/2 cup written on the recipe because it was too sweet.

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk
1/3 cup granulated sugar
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips (broken into pieces)
2 cups heavy whipping cream (well chilled)
1 teaspoon pure Vanilla extract

Procedure:

Scald the milk in a sauce pan on the stove (you can also microwave).n a food processor or blender, pulse the sugar with the chocolate until very fine. Add the hot milk and process until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl and let cool. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Chill 30 minutes or more. Turn the ice cream maker on and pour the mixture into the freezer bowl through the spout. Churn until thickened about 30 minutes. Cover the freezer bowl with a plastic and keep in the freezer with temperature of 0 degrees F for two hours. Transfer to a plastic ice cream container and freeze for longer hours. The longer the better.

*Make sure freezer bowl was kept in the freezer for at least one day before using.
