Easy Chocolate Ice Cream

chocolate ice creamWednesday is Recipe Day at CookingManager.Com.

My 13-year-old son spotted an ice-cream recipe in a cookbook we received as a holiday gift. That recipe required several bowls and a mixer. This simple (but rich) recipe, shared by Robin’s husband, came out much better.


200 ml. (7/8 cup) milk, 1% or 3%
50 grams (1/4 cup) sugar
75 grams (2-3 ounces) chocolate chips or broken up chocolate bar (Hint: small bar = 75 grams + some for your mouth = yum)
250 grams cream (1 cup) 15% fat (or more, more fat = yummier ice cream)


  1. Heat milk, sugar, and chocolate on the stove to melt the chocolate, low heat.
  2. Stir constantly. [We used the microwave instead. Heat on high until the chocolate is just melted, 2 to 3 minutes.]
  3. Mix in cream and stick the pot into the freezer while you eat dinner.
    After dinner, dump cold mixture into ice cream maker and churn. [The mixture should be as cold as possible but not frozen.]
  4. Serve with sprinkles and chocolate sauce.

If you don’t have an ice-cream maker try this method using zippered plastic bags. You can reuse the bag afterward.

  1. Nice idea! how come the recipe only serves one small child? 😉

  2. I wonder if you could make this pareve with soy milk and pareve whipping cream. Not that I have an ice cream maker but wondering.
