Chris, bless her heart, decided we should all pick our favorite chocolate ice cream recipe from the book for this weeks assignment.
I chose the recipe for Aztec Chocolate for my base, but then changed a key ingredient from cayenne pepper to ground ginger. The ginger provides a surprise spicyness that I love.
I rough-chopped some of my Trader Joe's dark chocolate covered candied ginger to mix in for a little interesting texture.
It is quite delicious, but the one change I will make next time is to replace both the cayenne AND the cinnamon with the ginger - not just the cayenne. The cinnamon is too strong a flavor to let the ginger shine through.
