This is a chunky, death-by-chocolate, incredibly rich ice cream lover's dream. As incredible as it is as written, next time I think I might try some rum flavoring to take it to the next level. With or without, however, this ice cream is truly one of the best.

Directions

  1. Soak the raisins in 1 cup water overnight in the refrigerator.
  2. The next day, drain the raisins well and combine them with the pecans, almonds and chocolate chips in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate.
  3. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Gradually whisk in the cocoa and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. (If the chocolate clumps or "seizes", don't worry - the milk will dissolve it). Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, and heat until blended. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  4. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and vanilla, and whisk to blend. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 to 3 hours, depending on your refrigerator.
  5. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer's directions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the raisin mixture, then continue freezing until done. Bask in the decadence!
