Chocolate ice cream (recipe from Mom-Mom -- need I say more?)

You first need to invest in an electric ice cream maker and remember to have plenty of ice cubes on hand -- about six trays -- or a small bag of ice cubes from convenience store.

2 cups heavy cream
1 cup half-and-half
1/4 cup Hershey's cocoa
2 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla

Salt -- takes about a half carton.

Mix all ingredients (except salt) together in electric blender and blend until smooth. Pour the chocolate liquid into ice cream maker container and start ice cream maker. Alternate layers of ice cubes, salt, ice cubes, salt to the top of the ice cream maker. It takes mine about 30 minutes to churn one batch of ice cream.
When finished, pour into eight small plastic containers with lids and freeze.

To vary the recipe, substitute fresh sliced peaches for cocoa and double the vanilla. Or strawberries, or just vanilla.
