Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream
Chocolate is probably my least favorite of all ice cream flavors. I don’t mind chocolate chunks or chocolate swirls but straight up chocolate ice cream just isn’t my thing. This recipe, though, has been calling my name since I bought Baking: From My Home to Yours. Yeah, it’s chocolate but it’s chocolate ganacheÂ and therefore a million times more interesting than plain chocolate.
The recipe, despite it’s fancy name, is incredibly simple. You make the ganache by melting chocolate (I used semisweet) together with some heavy cream. That gets stirred into a custard which only takes a few minutes to make. Chill it overnight, pour it into your ice cream maker, and you’ve got chocolate ganache ice cream!
It is definitely the best chocolate ice cream I’ve ever tried. I knew it was going to be good when I pulled the chilled custard out of the fridge and it had the texture of pudding! Like I said, I’m normally not a fan of chocolate but I’ll make this one again – and next time I’m going to add chocolate chunks to make it even richer!
