Sunday afternoon was spent making homemade ice cream for my nephew's homeschool graduation this weekend. We cranked a batch of vanilla, one of peanut butter and two batches of chocolate (one for graduation and one to enjoy that afternoon!). You'll find the recipe for the vanilla and peanut butter ice creams in this old post. I've included the chocolate recipe below as it's one that M. and I developed in the recent past - so good and chocolately . . .
Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream
Combine the following and mix well in a mixer; set aside:
2 -13 oz. cans of evaporated milk
2 C. sugar
3 C. chocolate milk
1 tabl. vanilla
Pinch of salt
Combine the following over medium-low heat and bring to an almost-simmer, stirring:
2 C. chocolate milk
1/2 C. water
2 tabl. unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tsp. sugar
Remove this mixture from the heat and add 1 1/2 C. semisweet chocolate chips. Whisk well until chips are completely dissolved. Whisk this chocolate mixture into the basic mixture; mix well in a mixer.
Place in ice cream maker and crank until finished (if doing it the old-fashioned way) or follow electric maker's instructions. Makes 4 to 5 quarts.
