Chocolate Ice Cream

Last week the was a post on the Etsy blog about Van Leeuwen's Artisan Ice Cream.  Attatched to the article was a recipe for bittersweet chocolate ice cream.  Right then I knew I had to make it! I looked for a chocolate bar with the highest percentage of cocoa (the recipe asks for 99%), but only came up with something around 86%. Although my chocolate of choice wasn't according to the recipe, it still came out delicious.  It has just the right amount of sweet and bitter.  I'm not a fan of super sugary ice creams and noticed this one calls for less sugar than other recipes I've tried. It's rather flavorful so I only have to eat a couple small scoops rather than my usual uh... half a quart. (Did I really just admit that?) Anyway, if you are a lover of chocolate and ice cream, definitely try it out!


  1. Yum, that looks so good! I love chocolate ice cream, but it's hard to find one with the right amount of chocolate. This sounds perfect, now I've just gotta go get an ice cream maker...

  2. Get one! I promise you won't regret it. You can also make slushy drinks in them ;)
