Chocolate Ice Cream with Pomegranate Molasses, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Candy


I have a totally obsessive personality. I get obsessed with TV shows, orchids, men (to a certain degree), technology (that is once I decide to actually start using it: such as instagram), my collection of nail polish and jewelry, and listening to Latin music.

I'm also obsessed with seeing my blog's statistics. I love seeing how people find my blog, where my blog gets mentioned, etc. That's exactly what I was doing last week when I saw that someone came to my blog because of a comment I left on Cherry Tea Cakes' blog post about Chocolate Pomegranate Ice Cream.

This was my comment from over 2 years ago:

oh if only I had an ice cream maker!! This looks awesome. And I have a bottle of POM pomegranate concentrate in my fridge.
Well, guess who has an ice cream maker now? I've actually had it for over a year and have made several types of ice cream and frozen yogurt flavors in it.

This past weekend I made my own variation of Chocolate Pomegranate Ice Cream by adding two ingredients to the original recipe: dark chocolate and chocolate covered pomegranate candy.

Chocolate Ice Cream with Pomegranate Molasses, Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Candy
Ingredients
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 egg yolks, beaten
2 2/3 cups heavy cream
¼ cup pomegranate molasses
1/3 cup shaved dark chocolate


Directions

1. In a food processor combine sugar and cocoa. Slowly incorporate egg yolks and pomegranate molasses.
2. In a slow stream add the heavy cream. Once the heavy cream is incorporated, turn the food processor on high and run until the mixture thickens.
3. Refrigerate the mixture for at least thirty minutes and then add it to your ice cream machine and follow the directions, adding the shaved dark chocolate and the candy once the mixture becomes more solid. {I realize these are not very technical directions.}
4. Freeze the ice cream.
5. Scoop it out and enjoy.


Doesn't this look sooooo good?


Now that I've shared some of my obsessions with you, tell me what YOU are obsessed with (but keep it clean please!).

Yes, please. That looks amazing. And I love that there are chocolate-covered pomegranates in there.
