Jerry's Chocolate Ice Cream


The combination of cocoa powder and unsweetened chocolate creates an ice cream with a more complex texture. Jerry refers to this as "mouth feel".


  • 2 oz. Unsweetened chocolate
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/3 c Unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 c Heavy or whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 c Milk
  • 1 tsp. Vanilla
  • 2 large Eggs


  1. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling water.
  2. Gradually whisk in the cocoa and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. ( the chocolate may "seize" or clump together. Don't worry, the milk will dissolve it).
  3. Whisk in the milk, a little at a time, and heat until completely blended. remove from the heat and let cool.
  4. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes.
  5. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more.
  6. Pour in the cream and vanilla and whisk to blend.
  7. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend.
  8. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1-3 hours, depending on your refrigerator.
  9. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions.

VARIATION: Chocolate Chocolate chip: Add 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips after the ice cream stiffens, about 2 minutes before it is done, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready. The rick fully textured ice cream is a chocoholic's delight. Some of Ben and Jerry's friends take it a step further and serve it with hot fudge sauce.
