Chocalate Icecream with Pecans

This is my first attempt on making homemade ice cream.Made this double chocalate icecream with pecans.Recipe adapted from here.

Ingredients

Bittersweet chocolate chips - 1/2 c

Dark chocolate chips - 1/2 c

Granulated sugar - 1/2 c

Whole milk - 1 Cup

heavy cream - 2 cups

Vanilla extract - 1 tsp

Pecans - 1/2 c


Method

Begin by heating the milk in a small saucepan just until bubbles start to form around the edges. Do not let the milk get too hot or it will scald.In your blender, combine the two types of chocolate chips and the granulated sugar and process until the mixture is very well chopped. Pour the hot milk into the blender and process until smooth and creamy.Pour into a medium sized bowl and let the mixture cool completely. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla. Cover and put the entire mixture into the freezer for 2 hours.Pour your chocolate mixture into blender and blend it until its smooth textured.Pour this into the freezer container and stir inthe pecans also.Freeze for about 2 hours or until firm.I served it in the store brought ice cream cones.
