Everyone has been all over Pinterest so a little while back I figured that since I am a major internet junkie anyway, I best check it out. I signed up and found it confusing, so never bothered going back. I kept getting emails that people I knew were following my boards, and I would wonder if they knew they were following...nothing. Today I decided to go back and have another go at it. Yeah, it guess it's pretty fun. I can see how people are addicted to browsing the boards all day, I feel like I want to go back on there to kill some time. It's not mind blowing, but another good way to waste time. Though for now all Pinterest has done is make me wish I were more healthy, sporty, crafty, a better cook, and had more money. Oh well. Kids are napping, best go kill some more time on Pinterest.

So I don't blog for ages and when I finally do it's about ice cream. I guess we can see what's important to write about here!
What I really wanted was the chocolate chocolate chip cherry stevia ice cream I had made awhile back. So I had went out and bought all the stuff to make it, except the cherries because I thought I had some. Today it was a toss up between making the ice cream or taking a nap (it was a hard decision). I decided to make the ice cream, got everything out, then realized the cherries had gone bad. Arrrghhhh!!! But it was too late for a nap and I still wanted ice cream, so I decided to make just chocolate instead. And instead of searching out a new recipe for chocolate, I went ahead and made the same one minus the cherries since I knew from last time that it was yummy.
HEAVENLY!!!! Is all I can say.
Here it is:
Chocolate Chocolate Chip Stevia Ice Cream
3 squares unsweetened baker's chocolate
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 cup milk
2 cups cream
1-1 1/2 tsp powdered stevia (I used 1 1/2 tsp because I wanted it sweet!)
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
Melt chocolate in a pan, add the cocoa powder and milk slowly and stir until smooth (this was tricky and I could never get completely smooth). Beat the eggs in a separate bowl, add cream and chocolate. Mix, then add stevia and vanilla. Add to ice cream maker. When ice cream thickens add chocolate chips. It didn't take long for mine to finish, maybe 15mins.
Oh.my.goodness it was so good. I honestly wasn't sure if it was going to be any good, but it was amazing. SO creamy and SO yummy. I'll be making it again for sure.
