Chocolate ice cream is great! But after you taste the rich, indulgent flavor of this homemade dark chocolate ice cream you’ll never go back. And you won’t believe how easy it is to make.

Traditional chocolate ice cream is made from a cooked ice cream base. It contains egg yolks, cocoa powder, and a few other ingredients. It can be tricky to make, because you could accidentally scramble the eggs when making the ice cream base. Plus, it has to cool for hours before you can put it in the ice cream maker. 

This easy dark chocolate ice cream recipe doesn't use raw egg yolks and you don't have to cook it--so it's ready to eat quickly. The secret to its rich, dark flavor is using two different types of high quality chocolate. It’s oh-so-smooth and delicious. 

It’s perfect for a hot summer day who am I kidding? Dark Chocolate ice cream is perfect for ANY day.

Make your own decadent, creamy, dark chocolate ice cream. This copycat of Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Fudge ice cream is so easy to make, with no eggs and no cooking.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In a large measuring cup or saucepan, combine the sweetened condensed milk, dark chocolate cocoa powder, and dark chocolate chips.
  2. Warm the mixture, stirring often, until the dark chocolate chips have melted and all lumps are gone. Remove from the heat.
  3. Add in the whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine.
  4. Set up your ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  5. Add the mixture to your ice cream maker and mix until frozen.

Notes

Your Dark Chocolate ice cream will have a soft-serve texture immediately after the ice cream maker is done.

For best results, put the ice cream in a freezer-safe container (these are my favorite because they're so easy to scoop from) and freeze for several hours to overnight.

    Do you recommend putting the batter into the fridge for a bit before putting into ice cream maker?
