That’s right. You can make chocolate ice cream without using an ice cream maker.It is so easy to make. Ten minutes is all you need. Definitely, making our own ice cream, the excitement of getting to finally taste it and the big smiles after getting everyone’s approval are memories that I want Aki and my future kids to have every summer.
I would like to thank Cook’s Country for the recipe
1 tsp instant coffee
1 tbsp hot water
4 oz chocolate chips (the original recipe calls for bittersweet but I used semi-sweet)
1/2 cup condensed milk
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Pinch salt (I forgot to add this but the ice cream was still so yummy)
1 1/4 cups cold heavy cream
In a microwaveable bowl, combine coffee and hot water until dissolved.
Add chocolate and condensed milk.
Microwave and stir every 10 seconds until the chocolate is melted. This step took less than a minute
Add vanilla and salt. Set aside
Using an electric mixer on medium speed, whip the cream until soft peaks form, about 2 minutes. Actually, I did see any soft peaks. Maybe my cream was not cold enough.
Mix 1/3 of the whipped cream with the chocolate mixture. Then add the rest of the cream. Mix well.
Transfer the mixture to a container. Put plastic wrap directly on the surface before covering.
Freeze for at least 6 hours. We made ice cream in the afternoon and ate it the morning after.
Gather the family around the dining table, distribute cups, and serve. Close your eyes as you listen and take in all the positive reviews from your loved ones.
For the rest of the day, super proud Aki kept saying, “I made yummy ice keem fohr ebi-wan! Diba? Diba?” (I made yummy ice cream for everyone. Right? Right?!)
P.S. Please share if you have other homemade ice cream recipes.
