Simple Chocolate Ice Cream

Simple Chocolate Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cups cocoa powder (sifted)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Note

*This recipe was originally found in the Cuisinart Recipe booklet, but I tend to play with the measurements so this is what I use.

Directions

Step 1
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugars, and salt.
Step 2
Add the milk and, using a hand mixer on low speed, beat to combine until the cocoa, sugars, and salt are dissolved.
Step 3
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
Step 4
Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours (or overnight)
Step 5
Following the directions of your ice cream maker, pour mixture in. (I have a Cuisinart, so mine has to mix for about 15-20 minutes).
Step 6
If you want it thicker, freeze immediately for about 2 hours, otherwise serve it up in a bowl or on a cone!
