one scoop needed

Today has been a rough day.  Nothing worked very well at work.  Got home.  Felt like a good day.  Went for my walk and knew that it might be a night that I did not move very well.  I stiffened up so badly that I need help walking.  If I had not had such a lovely dinner out, I would have needed ice cream at home.  

I have a go to vanilla ice cream recipe but I admit that a go to chocolate ice cream recipe has been hard to find.  Most chocolate ice creams either do not taste of chocolate or taste so much of chocolate they are overwhelming.  No happy medium.  It is like my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.  Just a nice happy middle ground.  

I may have figured out an amazing middle ground chocolate ice cream.  I say amazing because the texture is very similar to a frozen custard.  I just freeze this in the freeze.  No ice cream machine of any kind.  An immersion blender is the only speciality tool I use.  This works!  

And is so good!  So good that you really only need to eat one scoop

chocolate ice cream

1 pint heavy whipping cream

14 ounce can of organic condensed milk

1 tablespoon vanilla (or to taste)

4 ounces cream cheese, full fat and plain

4 ounces semi sweet chocolate (I measured)

Put everything into a very large freezer proof bowl.  I used a Pyrex with a cover that fit over it.  Mix with the immersion blender until smooth.  Cover.  Let freeze for about 6 or 8 hours until solid.


So good.
