I made this ice cream a couple weeks ago when I had lots of cream and eggs on hand. It’s AMAZING. But crazy sweet and rich. Make it!
I made a chocolate cake for my family reunion last weekend. Topped with Whipped Chocolate Ganache, it was as chocolatey as the ice cream. You definitely should NOT have them together!
Makes about 4 cups .
- 1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
- Place the semisweet chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl. Bring cream to a boil in heavy-bottom pan over medium-high heat; pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 10 minutes; use rubber spatula to stir until smooth.
- Let chocolate mixture cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Place mixture in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip on medium speed until ganache holds its shape and is slightly lightened in color.
