Both in quality and texture, this is one of the best ice creams I've ever made. I had none of the issues or criticisms others experienced like graininess, flecks of chocolate, consistency, freezing time, etc. In my opinion this is a flawless recipe, and my suggestion is to use the finest chocolate your budget can afford. I used 3 ozs. of Scharffenberger chocolate (by accident!) and it was perfect, tho' die hard chocoholics might even appreciate another ounce. This had a smooth, velvety mouth feel, totally creamy, chocolatey and rich. This is every bit as good as the frozen custard Wisconsin is so famous for. The directions are well written and easy to follow. No need to change or add a thing--unless you have some unexplainable burning desire to do so!


Don't be fooled by these ratings. Have been making homemade ice cream for years. This recipe will not freeze. In over an hour run time the best I can say is that it thickened. Taste is average at best.


Very TASTY Recipe! The only change to the ingredients was that I used half & half instead of the milk. Also after the chocolate was melted I put the pan in ice water for 2 minutes then wisked in the cream & vanilla, then refrigerated the mixture for several hours before freezing. This version is how my other ice cream recipes are made and they have all turned out great!
