Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Evan is an ice cream MANIAC.  He loves just about any ice cream you can imagine.  So….when an ice cream maker came up at the charity auction at work, I had to bid on it!  I really wanted to make vanilla ice cream first but I was over ruled.  We decided to use the homemade chocolate ice cream recipe out of the ice cream maker manual and it turned out pretty tasty.

I will be branching out & making some other recipes soon.  Some I want to try are: Homemade Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Caramel Macchiato Ice Cream.  Yum!  I can’t wait to figure out all kinds of new combinations.  Maybe I’ll even try to recreate Cherry Garcia from Ben & Jerry’s (my all time favorite flavor).

Homemade ice cream is the best!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsweetened dutch process cocoa powder

  1. Combine cocoa powder & sugars.
  2. Add whole milk and mix until the sugars are dissolved (about 1 or 2 minutes).
  3. Add whipping cream and vanilla extract.  Mix well.
  4. Pour into prepared 2-quart ice cream maker.
  5. We have the Cuisinart Pure Indulgence ice cream machine.  It took about 30 minutes to freeze to ice cream consistency.

Making ice cream with our new ice cream maker.

Evan loved making his own ice cream.

I'm so excited you bought an ice cream maker! The ice cream is SO AMAZING when you make it yourself. I plan to try all sorts of recipes, from mango to mint, cherry, etc. I'll keep you posted!

I will definitely be trying this... almost every recipe that came with my KitchenAid ice cream maker has eggs in it! Only the sorbet didn't.

Yeah...I'm not a big fan of raw eggs in my ice cream!
