The latest Cooks Illustrated magazine had a recipe for what they called "magic ice cream" - Ice cream that doesn't require an ice cream maker. Ok, so I couldn't resist. The recipe is incredibly simple and isn't much different from a chocolate mousse. Melted chocolate with a bit of espresso powder, fold in whipped cream and freeze.
The result was really outstanding. Did it taste like ice cream? No, it was much better. Much more like a really creamy gelato. Great chocolate flavor. And the whole thing took about 15 minutes to put together. I will definitely be doing this recipe often.
