Directions

  1. Heat the heavy cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat until it begins to bubble. Remove from the heat and stir in the chocolate and sugar until melted. Slowly stir in the stout beer. Cover and refrigerate until completely cooled.
  2. Pour the chilled mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions until it reaches "soft-serve" consistency. Transfer ice cream to a two-quart lidded plastic container; cover surface with plastic wrap and seal. For best results, ice cream should ripen in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

This was really great! I was skeptical about adding beer to ice cream, but it was delicious. I reduced the sugar to 1/2 cup, and used semi-sweet chocolate (b/c that is what I had in the cupboard) and this was a HUGE success!

LOVED THIS! I did use semi-sweet chips and I added Heath toffee chips too. Took it to a St. Patty's party and everyone ate it up.

The flavor of this ice cream is amazing. I doubled the recipe because I'm bringing it to a St. Patrick's Day party and wanted plenty to go around. I used one bag bittersweet chocolate chips and one bag semi-sweet to try and balance the two. It is fairly sweet (which I love) but if you don't have a real strong sweet tooth it probably wouldn't hurt to cut back on the sugar a little. The ice cream by itself is very tasty but it also feels like a blank canvas to add any of your other favorite ice cream toppers like nuts or whipped cream (toffee bits sounds like a great idea!) and I really wish I could make waffle cones because for some reason I imagine this ice cream going perfectly in one.
