I made this ice cream a couple weeks ago when I had lots of cream and eggs on hand. It's AMAZING. But crazy sweet and rich. Make it!
I made a chocolate cake for my family reunion last weekend. Topped with Whipped Chocolate Ganache, it was as chocolatey as the ice cream. You definitely should NOT have them together!
Whipped Chocolate Ganache
Makes about 4 cups .
- 1 pound semisweet chocolate, chopped
- 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
- Place the semisweet chocolate in a large heat-proof bowl. Bring cream to a boil in heavy-bottom pan over medium-high heat; pour over the chocolate. Let sit for 10 minutes; use rubber spatula to stir until smooth.
- Let chocolate mixture cool to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Place mixture in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whip on medium speed until ganache holds its shape and is slightly lightened in color.
