The boys got me an ice cream maker for Mother's Day and I have been playing around with a bunch of recipes trying to find one we all liked. We're really picky about our ice cream so it's been really hard finding a good recipe. I finally tweaked a couple and this is what I came up with.
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon salt
Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl. Add to ice cream maker. (It's important that you mix all the ingredients in a bowl other than the ice cream maker bowl!! I found this out the hard way.) Mix in ice cream maker according to maker instructions or until it reaches desired consistency. Enjoy!
This is the ice cream straight from the maker or "soft-serve". I couldn't take a picture of it after it has been frozen after being made because it's never lasted that long!
