What is there to say about chocolate ice cream? If given the choice between chocolate and vanilla, I’d probably take vanilla. I do enjoy a good chocolate fix now and then, but let’s just say I eat the vanilla side of the black and white cookie first.
But I can only make vanilla ice cream so many times. Actually, that’s a lie. I’ve only made vanilla ice cream twice. I like playing around with different flavors now that I have my own ice cream maker and complete, dominating control over what kind of custard goes into it.
And the fact that I’ve bookmarked something like 30 ice cream recipes probably doesn’t help.
But I needed a simple flavor into which I could mix the rest of my failed batch of chocolate chip cookie dough fudge. It didn’t set properly, if you all recall, and turned into moon sand…tasty moon sand, but crumbly and not entirely edible on its own. Except if you would consider eating it in dusty mouthfuls using a spoon. But that’s not really my style.
So I made chocolate ice cream. If you don’t have an ice cream maker, I’d highly recommend getting one. Homemade ice cream is sooo much better than store bought, and you can be the authority on what goes in your ice cream. Like chocolate chip moon sand. Mmmmmmm. Also, this recipe is from the culinary genius that is David Lebovitz, so you know it’s good.
