This is such a wonderful ice cream that nobody can notice it’s homemade unless they are told. This is my second ice cream try with my new ice cream maker and I’m absolutely very proud of the result. This is, without doubt, one of the best chocolate ice creams I’ve ever eaten! And it’s homemade. And I made it! Well, with the help of my new toy.

This Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream is smooth, creamy and full of chocolate flavor. It’s like a yummy chocolate in the form of ice cream. I knew that it would result in a perfect chocolate ice cream even before I put it in the freezer. The smell of it was so tempting that I couldn’t wait any longer and dipped my finger into it. I would just taste and then put it in the freezer, but I had to let hubby and mom taste it too. We had an irresistible feeling of eating more, but I was able to snatch the ice cream container and almost locked it in the freezer!

It’s up to you, or the monster inside you, to decide on the type of chocolate.

My first ice cream was Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream, the recipe of which I found in the manual of my ice cream maker. As its name suggests, it doesn’t contain egg yolks and it was way simpler as you just mix whipping cream with sugar and strawberries. This homemade chocolate ice cream might sound more complicated, but it’s not as long as you follow the steps. Believe me it’s worth all the effort for this super smooth chocolate ice cream.
