The Darkest Dark Chocolate Ice Cream

An ice cream for the most hardcore chocolate lover: The person who likes their chocolate dark, bittersweet, and fruity.

Why this recipe works:

  • Using high quality chocolate and cocoa powder—and lots of both—makes for an intensely dark ice cream with the fruity complexity of a chocolate bar.
  • Steeping cocoa nibs into the dairy noticeably amps up bittersweet and tart chocolate flavors.
  • Combining loads of chocolate with an all-milk dairy base makes for a balanced ice cream that's rich and fudgy but not overwhelmingly thick.
