It was a Chocolate Emergency

It really was a chocolate emergency.  And I can't blame the pregnancy.  I had some homemade ice cream that was screaming at me for chocolate.  I swear, I opened the freezer and it wouldn't stop.  I found this recipe for Hot Fudge Pie on pinterest and whipped it up.  It's perfect for that lonely ice cream that needed a mate.  It occurred to me that I've never shared my ice cream recipe either.  I'll pop that recipe below too.

Hot Fudge Pie, from Jessie’s recipe file
Serves four to six (or eight, if the ice cream scoops are big…)
  • 4 ounces unsalted butter, with a bit extra for greasing pie plate
  • 1 ½ squares unsweetened baking chocolate (1.5 ounces)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup AP flour (that is “all-purpose” for those of you not yet hip to food jive…)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Butter an eight-inch diameter pie plate or cake pan – use a glass or ceramic, if possible – or use cooking spray
  3. Melt butter and chocolate (I use a microwave – pretty much just for this task – at 50% power at 30 second intervals, just until the chocolate is almost entirely melted, and then stir).  Cool.
  4. Mix sugar into beaten eggs, combine until sugar is fully incorporated.
  5. Mix in butter-chocolate mixture until completely blended.
  6. Add vanilla and milk.  Stir well.
  7. Fold in flour, mixing just until no white streaks remain – do not overbeat.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes.
Serve with ice cream for the full upside-down hot fudge pie treatment.

Ice Cream 
(Jackie's easy/lazy way)

For every 1 cup of Heavy Cream, add 1/4 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla.  

Pop in the frozen kitchen aid ice cream mixing bowl until set.  Freeze overnight.  Get annoyed when the husband finds it and eats it all.

Or put ingredients in LL Bean Ice cream ball.  Add ice and 1/2 cup rock salt.  Move that ball for 10-15 min.  Scrape and stir ice cream.  Drain water, add more ice.  Move the ball for another 10-15 minutes.  Eat right up or freeze overnight. Get annoyed when the husband finds it and eats it all.
