Best Ever Chocolate Ice Cream

This ice cream is made using real chocolate and oh what a difference it makes! I used 2 kinds of chocolate from Ghiradelli to make this creamy and smooth chocolate ice cream. I used both their milk chocolate and the 60% bittersweet chocolate bars.

To make the sundaes I added a cup of chocolate to a microwave safe bowl. When melted I dipped the top of the glass into the chocolate and then dipped the glass in chocolate sprinkles. Refrigerate the glasses until chocolate has hardened. Add a little chocolate syrup to the glass and add the ice cream. Repeat a couple of times. Top with whipped cream and a Twix bar.
