Chocolate Ice Cream

I scream, you scream....we all scream for ice cream! July is National Ice Cream month and I'm planning to make a variety of ice cream over the last 2 weeks of the month. I made a batch of chocolate ice cream the other day and it was delicious. So perfect, creamy and full of flavor. I need to hide the container in the freeze to make sure Madeline doesn't see it, otherwise she'll want to eat the last serving!

3/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 cup milk (I used skim and it turned out fine)
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 Tbps vanilla extract

In a medium bowl, whisk together the cocoa, sugars and salt. Add the milk and using a hand mixer on low speed, beat to combine until all ingredients are dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours or overnight.

Using your ice cream maker, follow the manufacturers' instructions to make.
