2 1/2 squares (ounces) chocolate 1 1/2 cupfuls sugar Few grains salt
1 1/2 cupfuls boiling water 4 cupfuls rich milk 1/2 teaspoonful vanilla 1/2 teaspoonful cinnamon
Scald the milk. Melt the chocolate in the hot water, boil two minutes, flavor, then add to the milk with the remaining ingredients. Cool and freeze in three parts ice to one part salt; serve in chocolate cups. Garnish with half-frozen whipped cream, well-sweetened, and into which has been mixed quartered marshmallows, a little cocoanut and a few coarsely-chopped nut meats. Sprinkle each serving with bits of angelica and candied cherries, if convenient.
3 cupfuls milk
1 cupful cream or undiluted evaporated milk
2 squares chocolate
1 1/2 cupfuls sugar
1/8 teaspoonful salt
1 1/2 tablespoonfuls vanilla
Scrape the chocolate, add to the milk in a double boiler and cook until the chocolate is melted, stirring occasionally. Then pour onto the eggs, sugar, salt and vanilla, beaten together; chill, add the cream and freeze in three parts ice to one part salt.
1 quart milk
1 1/4 cupfuls sugar 1/8 teaspoonful salt
2 tablespoonfuls flour
3 egg yolks
