Homemade ice cream always sounds like a good idea, until you read through a recipe and realize how much work it's going to be. Is it worth it when a pint of Ben & Jerry's is already made and available for purchase right down the street?
The answer is yes. Yes, it is -- so long as you have this easy, no-fuss chocolate ice cream recipe from America's Test Kitchen. (No machine required, by the way.) The recipe uses a microwave in place of a double boiler. It mixes in whipped cream to mimic the churned texture of a machine. And it calls upon the wonderful qualities of sweetened condensed milk to keep it sweet and smooth.
