Simple Chocolate Ice Cream

My best friend bought us a crazy cool ice cream maker/dispenser for our wedding. I have always wanted to make homemade ice cream, so although there are lower fat alternatives to this recipe, we decided to make it as bad for you as possible the first time around! :)

The original recipe came from the Cuisinart instruction booklet.

Simple Chocolate Ice Cream
2/3 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. whole milk*
2 c. heavy cream*
1 t. vanilla extract

Stir cocoa, sugar, and brown sugar in a medium bowl with a whisk to remove lumps. Add the whole milk and use a hand mixer on low speed to combine until the sugars are dissolved. Stir (don't beat!) in the heavy cream and vanilla extract.

Pour mixture into your ice cream freezer bowl. Follow your ice cream maker's directions.

* For a lower fat variation, replace the whole milk and the heavy cream with 2% milk and half and half, respectively.
