Ben & Jerry's - Ben's Chocolate Ice Cream

Author/Submitted by:
Servings: 8
Categories: Chocolate / Desserts / Ice Cream/Frozen Yogurt

Ingredients:
4  ounces  Unsweetened chocolate
1  cup  Milk
2  large  Eggs
1  cup  Sugar
1  cup  Heavy cream, or whipping cream
1  teaspoon  Vanilla
1  pinch  Salt

Directions:
1. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling water. Gradually whisk in the milk and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from the heat and let cool.

2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light anf fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Add the cream, vanilla and salt and whisk to blend. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1-3 hours, depending on your refrigerator. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's instructions. Makes 1 generous quart.

Ben's Chocolate Ice Cream is about as rich as they come. The pinch of salt helps to bring out the chocolate flavor. VARIATIONS: Chocolate Almond - Add 1 cup roasted whole almonds (salted or unsalted) after the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, then continue to freeze until the ice cream is ready. Fudge Pecan - After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the pecans, then continue freezing until done. Remove the dasher and fold in the fudge sauce with a spatula.
