Mmmm. Good ice cream! I've been craving something sweet all week, but nothing "too" sweet. This was perfect - creamy, smooth & mildly sweet. Although you can taste it, the chocolate note is not star here (Wendy's recipe is not overpowering or artificial tasting, despite my hubby's comment that it was "very" chocolatey lol!). If you want a more intense chocolate flavor, top your ice cream w/ chocolate syurp (the beauty of this is that it can be as sweet as you want it to be). I too had issues as AKBMEIER did, but not for the same reasons. I had no problem w/ the cooking process (i.e. tempering, melting, cooling). My hiccup was not using my (KitchenAid) ice cream maker correctly. :( In retrospect, I SHOULD have mixed my cooled chocolate, cream & vanilla together BEFORE adding to my canister. B/c I didn't, my chocolate froze, thus causing a thick build-up b/t my dasher & the edge of my canister. I almost had to give up (my dasher couldn't churn b/c everthing froze up b4 it had a chance to). In the future, I'll be more careful. :) The good news is that I was able to salvage everything w/o ruining the end product (i.e no unmixed chunks). My only complaint is that compared to other ice cream recipes, this takes a while to freeze. If you enjoy soft serve ice cream, this will be right up your alley. All in all, this is a great, basic "chocolate" ice cream recipe (not really "very" chocolately tho, IMHO...). My hubby approves of me making this again & I agree! Thanks WENDYWR! :-)
