Ben & Jerry's Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

I thought I should type up this recipe as it is the kid's favourite and only exists on a torn out page from a magazine that floats around the kitchen.

Serves 6

Melt 50g (2oz) plain chocolate in the microwave. Whisk in 40g (1.5oz) cocoa powder and gradually add 350ml (12fl oz) warm milk until blended. Leave to cool.

Whisk 2 large eggs and 225g (8oz) caster sugar for 2 mins until light and fluffy, then stir in 225ml (8fl oz) double cream and 1 tsp vanilla extract.

Combine the mistures. Cover, chill in the fridge, then churn in an ice cream maker or, after chilling, pour into a shallow container, place in the freezer and stir with a fork every hour or so until frozen.
