This was really good ice cream! I got an ice cream maker for Christmas and finally got around to using it tonight. I modified - 4 Cups whole organic milk, 1 cup Domino Stevia/Sugar blend and cruddy melting chocolate I had laying around. I also used mint extract and a little dried crumbled mint herb I had on hand as well as the other ingredients. It turned out fabulous. My suggestions if you use to Stevia/Sugar blend is to cut back. I am going to try 1/2 - 3/4 next time. Mom didnt think it was too sweet. Boyfriend and I felt it was. The mint extract was also a little over powering. I might cut that back a little next time as well. To save some extra calories I used just milk rather than heavy cream. It turned out with a reasonable consistency. Kudos for the original ingredients- I modified to what I had in the house already and it still turned out really good. Another thing I learned, is the quality of chocolate makes a big difference. I learned for next time to not use cheap melting chocolate in ice cream. :-)
Oh, one last note- My ice cream maker didnt come with rock salt. I used sidewalk salt that I had in the garage and it worked perfect! Save the $ and buy it at the hardware store.
