When I crave ice cream, I usually make my favorite "French" custard base, which results in rich and creamy ice cream. But when I want it fast and without fuss, I go for Philadelphia-style ice cream. This eggless version is a bit lighter, but no less delicious, and it is so simple and fast to put together.

Philadelphia-Style Chocolate Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder (Dutch-process or natural)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch salt
  • 8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla

Directions

To make the ice cream:

In a non-reactive saucepot, whisk together the cream, cocoa, sugar, and salt. Mix until smooth and heat over medium heat until just simmering.

Add the chopped chocolate and whisk gently until completely smooth. Remove from heat. Add the milk and zest, if using, and whisk to combine.

Pour the chocolate mixture into a bowl (strain if you added the zest), cover with plastic and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 3 hours or overnight.When the mixture is chilled it will be much thicker.

Freeze according to your ice cream maker's instructions.
