A few days ago I needed to use some milk and heavy cream that was going to expire soon. Of course ice cream is the first thing that comes to my mind. The last couple of times I made ice cream it was either vanilla or cake batter. I decided I wanted to go with chocolate to mix it up.
I am a David Lebovitz fan and have been since he taught me how to make ice cream without an ice cream maker. I highly recommend his instruction if you are interested in making ice cream without an ice cream maker. Here is how:
I bought a Kitchen Aid Ice Cream Attachment for my Kitchen Aid so I use that all the time and never make it by hand anymore. It is very rewarding to make your own ice cream, especially if you are abl to create or use an excellent recipe.

It is possible I may have added more chocolate. When I opened my enormous bag of Ghiradelli's chocolate I bought at Costco several months ago I just started adding handfuls of it. At least in my book, you can never have too much chocolate.
