I made this delicious chocolate ice cream for a Father's Day treat for my husband and father-in-law. It was rich and creamy. Everyone loved it...and being a chocolate lover - it ranks up there as one of my favorite ice creams.

Sadly, because of the special day, I forgot to take pictures of the ice cream - and there was no leftovers to fall back on.

Serving Tip: Garnish ice cream with vibrantly colored fruit. I served ours with fresh cherries. It was a perfect combination.
