Chocolate ice-cream at last

I've been experimenting with my new icecream and 
frozen yoghurt maker. I made vanilla frozen yoghurt that David and I both enjoyed. Some friends I shared it with also enjoyed it.

But I've particularly been searching for something we can all appreciate. Our middle son pretty much only eats chocolate ice-cream. Or vanilla with chocolate sauce. He's not big on sweet things, much more of a savoury person.

It looks like I've found one recipe for chocolate ice-cream that works. I made it yesterday and it took a long time to become firm enough. I had it in the machine for about an hour, but it still was just like melted ice-cream. So I put it in the freezer for 24 hrs. 

Tonight I pulled it out and it was too hard to serve, but by the time we'd eaten our main course it was too soft again. Oh well, I guess we'll figure it all out in time.

But the reviews from the diners, the most important thing, was raving approval. I believe I heard, 
"Better than bought ice-cream!"
I'm going to keep experimenting in this new area of food creation! Very fun and tasty, although definitely needing to be rationed as it's not so good for the waistline.
