I am not a huge fan of ice cream, and have never found myself with the need of buying a churner. But in saying that I had never made ice cream from scratch and I was determined to give it ago. After browsing through a couple of
recipes pages on foodgawker I came across a cute little blog called Scientifically Sweet, run buy Christina Marsigliese, with a recipe for Dark Chocolate Fudgsicle Ice Cream without an ice cream machine. I was so ecstatic I was willing to make an ice cream recipe in Australia's winter season, but hello.... no ice cream churner needed.
I actually didn't mind this ice cream, the method with having to stir the mixture every now and then while it was freezing was a tad temper mental; but it tasted ok. And ok, coming from someone who doesn't like ice cream is pretty damn good. My family loved it and want me to make it again, but I think I might make a healthier recipe next time, and find a recipe you just have to pour and freeze... no stirring needed.
This ice cream was really smooth and creamy, which surprised me because I didn't use a churner. The chocolate flavour really hit the spot and I swear when it melts on your tongue the flavour gets even for intense. I defiantly think you could sub in some nuts, chocolate chips or even peppermint extract, if you wanted to take this chocolate ice cream even further.
Now I know you want the secret to this delicious ice cream, so you can find it here >RECIPE< on Scientifically Sweet
