Cuisine: Dessert
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • 4 oz dark (bittersweet) chocolate (I used 70% Kalari chocolate), finely chopped
  • ½ cup sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1½ cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup sliced almonds (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine chocolate and condensed milk in microwave safe bowl and heat in 10-second increments. Stir intermittently.
  2. After chocolate has been melted, stir in vanilla and salt. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, add 1.5 cups of heavy cream and whip on high speed until stiff peaks form.
  4. When cream has stiffened, whip in ⅓ of the chocolate mixture and then carefully fold in the remaining chocolate.
  5. If desired, add sliced nuts.
  6. Pour mixture into a quart-sized plastic container with an air--tight lid, and freeze for 2 to 3 hours. This is best eaten the same day that it's made.
Notes
This ice cream will get a bit harder than typical ice cream after a few hours of freezing time; let the ice cream sit out on the counter for a bit or microwave it for 15 seconds to soften before scooping
