Walmart Ice Cream

If you have an ice cream maker lying around you should get it out to try this! If not this is a reason to get one.  I have a Cuisineart with compressor so I can make multiple batches.  The machine is very noisy but works reliably and we use it way more than we ever thought we would. This will make 1.2 liters or a quart and then some so get out an appropriate sized container(s) and put them in the freezer to cool.

Take 2 rows of the Walmart Waterbridge Extra Dark Chocolate, about 1/4 lb, and put it in a pot to melt.  Keep stirring it around but don't get the pot hot, it's very difficult to make ice cream with hot milk. Measure out 2 cups of whipping cream.  When the chocolate is melted take the pot off the burner and add a little bit of the whipping cream, mix it in then keep adding more till it's all combined.  The object here is to get the chocolate that's stuck to the bottom of the pot mixed into the cream. Next add 1 cup of milk and 3/4 cup of sugar.  Lastly add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract and mix it all with an immersion blender or hand mixer. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker.  If your ice cream maker uses ice or a frozen bucket you might want to put the mixture in the freezer for a little while to cool down but don't let it freeze!  This ice cream "tastes like a chocolate bar!" and goes well with the brownies in the previous post.
