Make Without Eggs

Of all the frozen desserts served at the White House, this was said to be one of the favorites served. Very fine, creamy, and delicately flavored with velvety smooth chocolate. And so easily made a president could do it.

Add four ounces of grated chocolate to a cupful of sweet milk; then mix it thoroughly to a quart of thick, sweet cream; no flavoring is required but vanilla. Sweeten with a cupful of sugar; beat again and freeze. Very fine.
