This vegan chocolate ice cream has a rich, dark chocolate flavor and maintains a soft texture thanks to crème de cacao. Even if you aren’t vegan, you’ll love this ice cream! Feel free to substitute a different alcohol for the crème de cacao — I use whisky often — but don’t skip it: the alcohol is necessary to avoid an icy final texture.
