How to Make Ice Cream with a KitchenAid Mixer
Prepare to be amazed by how easy this process is! The actual ice cream preparation takes only about 20 minutes, and the remaining time is spent waiting for it to chill. Once you master this chocolate ice cream recipe, you can experiment with various flavors using your KitchenAid mixer!
Start by whisking together 6 egg yolks, 2/3 cup of unsweetened sifted cocoa powder, and 1 1/3 cups of sugar. Add 1 1/3 cups of half and half, and mix until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a double boiler and cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes, stirring constantly. The mixture should coat the back of a wooden spoon nicely.
Carefully remove the ice cream mixture from the double boiler and add 4 cups of heavy whipping cream. Whisk everything together until well incorporated. Then, place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for approximately 2-3 hours.
Once chilled, transfer your ice cream mixture to your ice cream freezer or your beloved KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment. Churn the mixture for about 20 minutes or until it reaches a firm consistency.
