Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream

A plain chocolate ice cream is actually one of my least favorite ice cream flavor. But this recipe, despite its fancy name, definitely changed my taste for chocolate. It is unbelievably worth craving for! You make the ganache by simply melting semisweet chocolate with some heavy ice cream. That gets stirred into a custard which only takes a few minutes. Just chill it overnight, then pour it into your ice cream maker and there you go! You can add colorful sprinkles to have an enticing look and make it even richer.

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 cup sugar
