I remember the best bite of ice cream I ever ate, it was amazing and I’ve been trying to recreate it ever since. I’ve tried a ton of different ice cream recipes throughout the years. THIS recipe is perfection! This is seriously AMAZING ice cream. Creamy, rich, indulgent, delicious… oh and did I say RICH?
I love Chocolate. In fact I believe chocolate is a food group! Probably my main food group honestly… And within that food group my main consumption is Cake, Ganache and Ice Cream. I already had a basic chocolate ice cream recipe, but I was looking for something super rich… this is Perfection.

- In another bowl beat the sugar, eggs and cocoa. it will start crumbly and get smoother as you go.

- Slowly pour the milk into the chocolate mixture while beating the mixture.

- It will start out very foamy, but as you stir the foam will go away and it will thicken slightly.

- Pour into a container and freeze 2 hours before serving
This recipe might sound complicated with the egg based custard ice cream as well as the ganache section of the recipe. BUT I promise it’s SUPER easy, I’ve tried so many recipes over the years I’ve tried it all. There have been really complicated ones but they have never right! But this one? Fast, easy and I seriously can’t stop gushing about it.
