An Embarrassment Of Richness
Chocolate. Who doesn't like chocolate? I have heard of some sad individuals who are allergic to the stuff, and they have my deepest sympathy. Chocolate is a major food group for most Americans. I'm more of a coffee fan, myself; heavy duty chocolate can give me a headache.
But when I read on the blog "A Cup of Jo" about rich, smooth chocolate ice cream I can make without an ice cream freezer, I do sit up and read it again.
The recipe is so simple that most ingredients I had already at home. After reading the recipe, I made a dash to the store for the rest of the supplies and set to work.
What emerged the next day, after giving it time to freeze hard, was the richest, most decadent, most amazing chocolate ice cream I have ever tasted. In fact, it was a little too rich and decadent, if you can believe such a thing.
The bowl you are looking at is about two inches across and that spoon is a demitasse spoon. It was still too much ice cream. My Beloved called it "cold brownies." He has a way with words; it is the chocolatest chocolate ice cream in the world, bar none.
So if you've got a world-class chocolate yen on, I can recommend this ice cream. Otherwise, Häagen-Dazs will suffice.
