YUM! Haven't tried a custard style ice cream until this one, but after reading many indications that it created a silkier ice cream, I decided to try this. SO GLAD I DID! Used Ghiradeli 60% bittersweet chips and a little more milk (maybe a half cup or so)

This was really good. I did some substitutes but used this recipe as my base. I used Hershey's cocoa instead of the chocolate squares (used about 1/3 to 1/2 cup and this was great.I didn't put in any chips either. So good. This is my new recipe for chocolate ice cream.
