    I made this with extra dark cocoa and it was amazing. It was extremely easy and thankfully quick to make. Next time I might crumble a couple of brownies in it. I let it churn 40 minutes. I had chilled the mix and the container before churning.

    Exactly what I was looking for. Smooth and creamy, with just the right amount of chocolate! This is definitely the chocolate ice cream recipe that I will continue using! Also try the Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream from the TOH site: are perfect!
