Add all ingredients, aside from the chocolate bar, into a high-speed blender.
Blend until all ingredients are well incorporated into a consistent mixture. You may need to intermittently scrape down the sides of the blender or use a blender tamper to ensure everything is well-blended.
Pour mixture into an 8×8 or loaf plan.
Sprinkle chopped chocolate bar chunks (or your added topping of choice) to the mixture and stir them in.
Freeze for about 2 hours, until a frozen ice cream texture is achieved.
