this post. I was reading my sweet friend and fellow food blogger Heidi's blog about her homemade ChocMint ice cream without an ice cream maker, and I knew that I had to explore this new possibility! I must admit (sorry Heidi!), I'm not much of a mint fan, and particularly not the combination of chocolate and mint, so I knew that wasnt going to happen. I also have two major chocolate lovers at home (my husband and I), so that was the direction I went. I must have made this recipe like the day after I read Heidi's post, and that ice cream was literally gone before I could take pictures of it! So what is a girl to do?!?! I just had to make a second batch - for photo sakes of course! No other reason. Nope. Not one.
Let me tell you, this ice cream is the easiest ice cream to make! And it doesnt get any better than not even needing an ice cream maker! You only need 4 ingredients too! So so easy!!! You need to start out with some heavy whipping cream, or other cream that can be whipped.
Once you have the cream fully whipped up, you just fold in the rest of the ingredients! Start out with a can of sweetened condensed milk. Fold it into the cream in batches. I'm not sure if it would work dumping it all in at once, but I wanted to be on the safe side, so I did it in batches. Here is what it will look like once it is fully incorporated.
Bits of Sunshine to see her recipe. Say hi to her for me :)
-300g/1 cup + 1 Tbsp cream/heavy whipping cream
-One 400g/14oz can sweetened condensed milk
-1/4 cup sifted cocoa powder
-One 150g/5oz bar good quality chocolate, roughly chopped
-Extra chocolate from bar to make about 1 Tbsp melted chocolate (can also use chocolate chips)
-Using a stand or hand mixer, whip cream until it holds stiff peaks, about 5 minutes.
-Fold in condensed milk in batches until fully incorporated
-Fold in cocoa powder and melted chocolate
-Fold in chocolate chunks
-Freeze in a freezer-safe dish and stir every 45 minutes to break up the ice.
-Serve with an ice cold glass of milk and enjoy!
