Chocolate Ice Cream


Boy, this has been a hot summer - and we're only half way through July. Lucky for us, we can make ice cream! There's something special about cooling down with a delicious frozen treat during the dog days of summer.

This chocolate ice cream truly chocolatey - and also rich and creamy and absolutely delectable. And it doesn't require any cooking, so you can have a frozen treat without heating up the kitchen.

Very few ingredients are needed - although note that I did forget the sweetened condensed milk in this picture!


Pour the half and half and whipping cream into a large batter bowl or measuring cup (I like the container to have a spout so it's easy to pour into the ice cream maker). Add the sweetened condensed milk


Whisk to combine the milks, then add the cocoa


vanilla and chocolate syrup.


Whisk again to combine all the ingredients until you have a smooth batter.



Pour into your ice cream maker


and process. Transfer the soft ice cream to a freezer safe container and freeze until the ice cream is at your desired consistency. Happy summer!

  4. I am getting seriously tempted to get me an icecream maker - but don't really have room for it. I found this through Turning the Clock Back's What's Cooking Wednesday. I have linked in an attempt at meatballs. Have a lovely week.
