Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

I love this ice cream. Smooth, creamy and full of chocolate flavor. What’s not to love? This is also the simplest ice cream recipe I have ever made. Seriously – the easiest.

For starters, you don’t need an ice cream maker. And the recipe is only two ingredients. You really can’t get easier than that.

This recipe came about because I hate to waste anything. I had a carton of heavy whipping cream that was getting close to it’s expiration date. I didn’t need it for anything, but didn’t want to waste it. I decided I could use it to make ice cream.

It was late and I was tired, so I wanted a quick fix. I put the whipping cream in my mixer and whipped it up. Once it got to stiff peaks, I started adding chocolate syrup. With the mixer still running, I kept adding syrup until the mixture was the color I wanted. I figured when it was the color of chocolate ice cream, I had added enough.

I put the mixture in a quart container, put on the lid and popped it in the freezer. It was a couple of days before I remembered it was in there. I gave it a taste. I was so pleased. It was very creamy and smooth.

 

So here is the recipe, although I guess I sort of already told you what to do.

Super Easy Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream

1 pint whipping cream

chocolate syrup to taste – I used around a half a cup- I think

Place whipping cream in a bowl and whip until stiff peaks form. With mixer running, add the syrup. Add until mixture is the color of chocolate ice cream. You can also give it a taste, to be sure. Place mixture in a container with a tight fitting lid and place in freezer. Freeze several hours before trying it. Makes 1 quart.
