I made this for Sushiman's Mexican Standoff last night and it was the perfect ending to a perfect dinner! I ended up using dark chocolate, and doubling the amount. I also used lots of cinnamon, more than was called for. The resulting ice cream was intense, rich, dark and delicious! 16 people at my party each gave this five stars so this recipe gets 80 stars!
Oh my stars, this is so good. I have stayed away for anything that was cinnamon and chocolate as I did not think it would taste good. I will never do that again. On step 6 don't forget to temper the yolks slowly before adding all the hot half/half mixture. ellie thank you for posting. Made for Zaar Tag game 2007
