About

Ice cream is easy to make, all you need is a basic custard and your favorite flavors. In this recipe, I made a coffee ice cream and stirred in some shaved bittersweet chocolate. It’s delicious without being overwhelming or sickly sweet. For the record- I have a Cusinart 2qt Ice cream maker with a freezable bowl. It’s easy to use and does a wonderful job.
