for some reason my ice cream turned out grainy - i think it might be because i melted the chocolate first and whisked in the milk - even though it didn't turn out like i expected - i will certainly try again very soon!

Excellent chocolate recipe. I was looking for one more "child oriented" as the chocate taste on this one was very rich and luscious. Excellent for a dinner party for adults. I am keeping this one for me!

This recipe is for True Chocolate Lovers Only! Intense flavor and creamy deliciousness! I began this recipe using Unsweetened Baker's squares and melting it in the top of a double boiler. From there followed the step exactly as directed by the posting chef. There isn't a thing I would change about this recipe except perhaps to make more! This recipe makes 1 quart....and believe me, it won't last long : ) Thank you for sharing this recipe with us on Zaar!
