GREAT dark chocolate ice cream!
I made this ice cream using Ghirardelli's bittersweet chocolate. This is an excellent recipe. The ice cream is very creamy with a deep chocolate flavor. I had to watch it carefully when cooking, and periodically lift the pot off the burner so it wouldn't come to a boil. I'm a confessed chocoholic, and I can honestly say this is the best chocolate ice cream I've ever had. Next time I will hide it from my husband so he doesn't eat it all.
