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.

Oh yeah. I've been waiting to hear about the ice cream after you mentioned it in a comment on my blog recently! It was definitely worth the wait.

I particularly like how you serve the chocolate ice cream in a carrot dish?

I'm definitely going to have to make some (the day before I want to eat it). Thanks so much.
Also, what Hungry Dog said about the carrot dish.

Greg, if I had an electric ice cream maker, I would weigh 400 pounds.

Hungry Dog, here it is! The carrot dish makes me feel like I'm eating health food. :-) Seriously, it's the smallest dish I own, that's why.

Cookiecrumb, it's not very sweet but, mama, is it ever rich! I used my little tiny sorbet scoop.
