Your mouth will LOVE you when you mingle freshly shaved chocolate with sweet bing cherries in this amazingly close Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia Ice Cream clone.
1/4 c Plain chocolate shaved*
1/4 c Bing cherries, fresh, halved -and pitted (may use canned –but drain syrup)
2 lg Eggs
3/4 c Sugar
2 c Heavy or whipping cream
1 c Milk
*B&J prefer Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate candy bars
Place shaved chocolate flakes and cherries in separate bowls. Cover and refrigerate. Whisk the eggs in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Whisk in the sugar, a little at a time, then continue whisking until completely blended, about 1 minute more. Pour in the cream and milk and whisk to blend. Transfer the mixture to the ice cream maker and freeze following the manufacturer’s instructions. After the ice cream stiffens (about 2 minutes before it is done), add the chocolate and cherries, then continue freezing until the ice cream is ready.
