I am a huge fan of chocolate! Since I started making my own I have become a bit of a chocoholic. I made this ice cream keeping those who do not have an ice cream machine in mind. It comes out tasting just like the real thing though I must warn you that the texture is a bit different - a little more icy. I have discovered the key to freezer ice cream is putting a little bit of alcohol in it to keep it scoopable. I used whisky but you could also use rum or vodka. This ice cream is dairy free and sugar free if you want it to be by using xylitol. I have even detailed how to make your own chocolate chips. So go for don't need anything special to make this one and its a great recipe for when you are feeling like indulging in some chocolate bliss.The great thing about this recipe is it won't leave you feeling guilty or sick to your stomach! I had a little bit for breakfast :S...don't tell.
