I have warm weather dreams and chocolate cravings...
Dark Chocolate Ice Cream
3 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp dark cocoa
3 ounces dark chocolate, chopped (I used Ghirardelli Evening Dream)
3 large egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla
In a large saucepan, combine heavy cream, sugar, salt, dark cocoa powder and chocolate and heat to a simmer.
Lightly beat egg yolks, gradually temper with chocolate mixture and then add into saucepan. Heat until thickened, stirring frequently.
Cool mixture and then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Pour into ice cream maker and run per manufacturer's directions.
