Ingredients to plan for this chocolate ice cream recipe

Liquid cream : choose the whole at 30% mg, it is beaten into whipped cream and then incorporated in order to aerate the texture of the ice cream (like an ice cream maker).

Sweetened condensed milk : it is the key ingredient here, it is this which allows the ice cream to have a creamy and melting texture, and which prevents crystals from forming. I do not advise you to substitute it.

Unsweetened cocoa powder : it gives a nice chocolate flavor to the ice cream.

Dark chocolate : for more indulgence I add pieces of chocolate crushed in ice cream. I use no more 55% cocoa chocolate.

Vanilla / Salt : these are two flavor enhancers in this recipe, which will reveal the taste of chocolate.

NB: the precise quantities are given at the bottom of this article, in the detailed recipe part.

How to make this chocolate ice cream without an ice cream maker?

To store and freeze chocolate ice cream, you need a standard mold cake mold (mine is 23 x 13cm) or an ice cream bin.

You will see, the steps are quick and easy! We start by mixing the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa, vanilla and salt in a container.

Separately, we whip the liquid cream into a firm whipped cream. Then, we just incorporate the whipped cream into the previous mixture. Be careful, you have to go slowly so as not to break the whipped cream. We want to keep its sparkling effect to aerate the chocolate ice cream. I use a maryse (spatula) for this step.

Then, we crush the dark chocolate into small pieces : more or less big according to your taste. We keep a small part for the decoration, and we add the rest to the mixture.

Finally, all you have to do is pour the preparation into the mold and sprinkle with the remaining nuggets. To protect the chocolate ice cream (and prevent it from taking on the smell of the freezer, it is wrapped in cling film. It must be frozen at minimum 2 hours before you can make scoops of ice cream.

How to properly store this homemade ice cream?

This ice cream will keep for approx. 1 week in the freezer. However, be aware that the longer the ice cream stays in the freezer, the more it hardens.

Leave it for a few moments at room temperature to be able to make the balls more easily. I also immerse the ice cream scoop in hot water, it helps a lot.

Possible variations for this recipe

If you want to give this chocolate ice cream even more crunch, you can add pieces of peanut or praline, at the same time as the pieces of chocolate.

      Hello Nathalie, be careful though: unsweetened condensed milk does not have the same properties as sweetened condensed milk. It is much more liquid and does not allow the mixture to thicken. For this, I therefore advise you to follow my recipe, and to increase the dose of cocoa to counterbalance the sweet effect. See you soon :)

    Just wondered if you used chocolate wafers or chocolate pieces in the recipe? At first I thought pieces were used but in the recipe details, I thought wafers (biscuits). Could you clarify please? THANKS.

      Hi Brian, you are right I use chopped dark chocolate pieces. Sorry but the translation might not be clear enough (automatic) I'm working on it to make it better…
