Read an Excerpt


Ben's Chocolate

Ben's Chocolate Ice Cream is about as rich as they come. The pinch of salt helps to bring out the chocolate flavor.

4 ounces unsweetened chocolate

1 cup milk

2 large eggs

1 cup sugar

1 cup heavy or whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 pinch salt

1. Melt the unsweetened chocolate in the top of a double boiler over hot, not boiling, water. Gradually whisk in the milk and heat, stirring constantly, until smooth. Remove from the heat and let cool.

2. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Add the cream, vanilla, and salt and whisk to blend.

3. Pour the chocolate mixture into the cream mixture and blend. Cover and refrigerate until cold, about 1 to 3 hours, depending on your refrigerator.

4. Transfer the mixture to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Makes 1 quart.

    Tastes just like the guys made it themselves!

    All of the recipes are easy to follow, with no weird ingredients. Most importantly, the results are creamier and more delicious than any ice cream we ever made before we were given this book!

    Fantastic Book, Great Desserts

    These are some of the easiest, best-tasting desserts I've ever made. I'd recommend the book to someone in a heartbeat. My admiration for Ben & Jerry continues to grow!

    Yummy on Many Levels!

    Ben & Jerry were always heros of mine. They got me through many hard times with the help of their ice creamy goodness. Heck, I ate up to 4 pints a week while pregnant! Now I can make their recipes at home? I was in! All of the recipes are easy to follow and need no strange ingredients that will make workers at your local grocery store look at you cross-eyed when you ask for them. Best dessert cookery book EVER!!

    Business Book & Original Ice Cream Recipes!

    I was pleasantly surprised with the business story to Ben & Jerry's in the first chapter. They detailed everything from money to square footage of the first store. I feel much greater respect to Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream company as a result because the story was personal. As for the Ice Cream! They publish actual ice cream recipes for what they are selling in store freezers! The first ice cream I made was the vanilla. I used the most butterfat 'heavy cream' and the finest ingredients as recommended 'organic whole milk, and pure sugar cane'. The homemade ice cream was the best creamiest, soft textured, rich, perfect vanilla ice cream I have ever had! I have become a loyal Ben & Jerry's fan!

    Delicious recipes... but raw eggs?

    My husband was doubtful that homedmade ice cream would be any good as he had tried it in the past and it was icy but was willing to try it again. I bought this book based on recommendations that I read. So far we have made the heath bar crunch and the basic sweet cream w/ chocolate chips. We made the heath bar crunch first- it was good but had a slightly flat taste- also the heath bar pieces seemed a little skimpy compared to what I remember in the store bought Ben & Jerrys's. The second batch, chocolate chip, came out a little better, I think because I added a pinch of salt. Although most recipes do not call for salt- I think the recipes can benefit by a pinch it helps to bring out the flavor. The only other thing I wanted to add here is that I was surprised that most of the recipes called for 'raw egg'- none of the prior reviews had mentioned that and think it is worth mentioning due to the health risks for certain people. Good tips though on adding fruits, and fudge and carmel sauces. Interesting background on how they got started. The book is worth buying but just beware of the raw eggs...there is a recipe for sweet cream that does not have any eggs but they indicate that you need to eat immediately as it does not store well without eggs (i.e. ice crystals are formed).

    Simply the best

    If you only buy one ice cream recipe book, this should be it. The recipes are so easy, and have so many options, there truly is something for everyone in this book. The recipe for Sweet Cream Base alone is worth the price of the book!

    Best ice cream I've ever eaten!

    After reading the online reviews, I decided that this was the most recommended ice cream book out there. I tried the no cook custard recipe and added pineapple (like my grand father did when I was a kid). It was the best ice cream I have ever tasted! Definitely rich, and my sweet tooth Loved it. As far as the eggs being uncooked, I have heard that combining eggs with sugar actually cooks the eggs, but I bought pasteurized Egg Beaters and used them to avoid any healhealth concerns. Book is Worth the money.

    I heart Ben and Jerry's

    So my husband and I got an ice cream maker this past year for our wedding (we've yet to use it unfortunately) and I was basically looking for neat and interesting recipes to make and when I got this book, it was to hopefully recreate in our own home some of our most favorite flavors from Ben and Jerry's. I can't say that we've tried anything as of yet, but the book was filled with the basic recipes and helpful hints on adaptations. As far as I can tell, the recipes seemed a bit easier to follow than some I've come across. I also like that at the end of the book they also gave the recipes for various baked goods that they commonly use for add-ins. One thing that I would like is for the book to be updated to reflect newer flavors but other than that I think that the book is a fun place to start. There are also a lot of cute little quips and tidbits about how they started the company and about their adventures in ice cream production.
