Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream (without an ice cream maker)

Can’t believe summer is almost over ! So I thought I would treat my kids and myself with some homemade ice cream. ¬†With a few rejected tubs still sitting in my freezer, I finally got the right taste ! ¬†Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Makes about 1 L

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 3 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
  • 1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Put a stainless steel or glass mixing bowl in freezer for about 15 minutes
  2. Put chocolate, condensed milk and cocoa powder in a bowl over a pot of simmering water
  3. Stir until chocolate melted and smooth, cool slightly
  4. Whisk cream in cold mixing bowl using an electric mixer at medium speed until frothy, add in vanilla
  5. Increase speed to high and beat until creamy and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes
  6. Gently whisk in 1/2 cup of cream into chocolate mixture, then the remaining in 2 to 3 portions, mix well, texture should look like melted ice cream
  7. Pour into container and freeze until set
