Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Last night I got out my Cuisinart Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker. I still don’t know if I like it or not. I’ve used it 3 times now, twice with their recipes and once with mine. I still have yet to get soft serve ice cream from it. This time I let the machine run over 30 minutes and it just began to make a slight thin swirl when it came out of the machine. It has always been way to soft and I then end up putting it in the freezer to harden. I may have well used my regular ice cream maker and saved myself the cleanup of the machine. It is not a lot of fun to wash, there are pieces to the machine and one piece is difficult to clean.

I did make a really delicious, rich chocolate ice cream in it however and the recipe is a keeper.
