I have been dieing for ice cream all day long, so I couldn't wait to scoop a bowl for TV time. One problem though, I wanted chocolate and we don't have any. I have some Breyer's cookie dough, so that will be my base. Now sure, I could have dumped on some Nesquik syrup on top, but what happens if I go with pure cocoa? Well, exactly what you expect happens: It's potent, very potent, and I added way too much. It tastes fine when you get just a bit with your scoop, but grab too much and it's overkill. Cocoa just isn't one of those things you want hitting your taste buds all by itself. I wound up having to dump in more cookie dough, but even then, I was still left with a mild but unpleasant chalky aftertaste.
So, give it a try if you want, but be gentle. Ok, back to the TV (Chuck!)
