This is a very rich, custard style ice cream and my favourite chocolate ice cream. You will need an ice cream maker.
Took shortcuts. Make this best ever icecream even better by this simple shortcut. Ditch the icecream machine and instead simply whip the cream before adding to the cooled custard. Then freeze! Easy. - 05 Apr 2010
Altered ingredient amounts. I added 1/2 pack chopped Chocolate Ripple biscuits during the churning in the ice cream maker. - 27 Jan 2009
OMG, AMAZING!!!!!!! Can't believe I made something that great! Top marks! I should just say however, I didn't follow the instructions to the letter. I followed steps 1-3, and then I whipped the cream before folding the chocolate mixture into it. Why? I was cynical that doing it that way would freeze well and turn out ok. And I'm sooooooooooooo glad I did because my freezer tends to freeze ice cream mixture pretty hard and I usually find I have to let my ice cream stand for a while before I can scoop. So, if you have that problem generally, whip the cream and then add the milk mixture. - 14 Mar 2012
