Review: Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

My brother got me an ice cream maker for Christmas 2007. We finally got around to using it, and I fully anticipate using it many more times in the future.
  1. Was the recipe easy to follow? It was very easy to follow, but it definitely requires some special equipment and some expensive ingredients.
  2. Did the dish taste good? Yes, but it was a little rich. I'll cut the chocolate a little bit next time.
  3. Would you make it again? Definitely. I'm really eager to get a lot of use out of my ice cream maker.

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup granulated sugar
8 ounces bittersweet or semi-sweet chocolate, broken into 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 cup chopped day-old brownies

  1. Heat the whole milk until it is just bubbling around the edges (this may be done on the stovetop or in a microwave).
  2. In a blender or food processor fitted with a metal blade, pulse to process the sugar with the chocolate until the chocolate is very finely chopped. Add the hot milk, process until well blended and smooth. Transfer to a medium bowl and let the chocolate mixture cool completely. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla to taste.
  3. Chill for 30 minutes or longer.
  4. Put the mixture in the ice cream machine and turn it on. Add the chopped brownies during the last five minutes of mixing.
