    Bev's Note:

    This makes a very rich and creamy chocolate ice cream. Be sure for best flavor, to use a premium, high quality chocolate. If you do not like the bitter taste of the chocolate, be sure to add extra sugar (you can add up to 1 full cup). The Cook Time reflects freezing. Note: To make Belgian chocolate ice cream, stir in 1/4 cup rum or 1 tsp rum extract and 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts. To make Mandarin Chocolate ice cream, add 1 TBS grated orange rind and 1/2 tsp orange extract or 2 TBS orange liqueur.

      Excellent and easy to prepare. Even though there are only 2 ounces of chocolate, the ice cream is very, very chocolaty. I took Bev's suggestion and added an additional 1/4 c. sugar to get a sweeter chocolate ice cream. This ice cream is so good.
