Hunt for the Creamiest Chocolate Ice Cream

World's creamiest chocolate ice cream recipe?
Melbourne, Australia
February 12, 2018 10:25pm CST
I made this chocolate ice cream recently. It was super creamy and I loved it! The recipe included 2 cups of cream combined with chocolate, sugar and cocoa. Does anyone have a go-to recipe for a really creamy chocolate ice cream? I'm wanting to experiment.

@cintol you'll probably hate me for saying this, but garlic ice cream is next. I don't think it will be a favourite but i'm keen to try it.

Isn't it so much trouble with the ice crystals needed as one churns the cream and other ingredients together though ?

@enlightenedpsych2 There were no ice crystals, just tasty ice cream :) its important to have really chilled mixture before adding to an ice cream machine.

@natemelb no ice crystals hmmmm maybe when I learned to churn cream and sugar and natural flavorings in a bucket, there was an outer bucket of ice that served as a very effective cooling conductor, but I am thinking maybe Girl Scouts were taught a different way ...

@enlightenedpsych2 My first ice cream machine was under $100 and it made amazing ice cream. No need for the bucket of ice any more :)

No, I don't ever make ice cream. But ironically, I did buy one of those little Cherry Garcia ice creams today....and I don't even eat ice cream. I don't know why I bought it. I don't know if I'll even eat it. And I don't know why I'm in this discussion. I guess I just like the idea of someone being creative and making their own ice cream. Do you use heavy whipping cream to make the ice cream? Because that would make it creamier. Unless you're already doing that...

Thanks for your comment Melanie and glad you joined the discussion! Yes, this ice cream used heavy cream and lots of it. The "creaminess-factor" was set to ten :)

@natemelb Got it. Okay then, have you tried using....sweetened condensed milk? Eagle brand, in a can.

@Melanie_Marie Yes, it works well by incorporating with whipped cream. Is that how you do it?

@miketagz yes, instead of churning in an ice cream machine, you can just add straight to the freezer. Every half hour or so remove and whisk, then put back in freezer. It makes good ice cream.

An ice cream machine helps improve the texture - it makes it less icy. I used 2 cups cream, 1/2 cup sugar, 6 egg yolks, 1/4 cup cocoa and a block of dark chocolate.

My mum used to make ice-cream when I was a child but there were no ice-cream makers back then. I remember it had to partially freeze then be beaten up again and frozen again. I forgot - welcome to myLot. And I'm guessing that's Melbourne, Australia? Because there is a Melbourne in Florida too.

How I wish I could make my own ice cream. I am not only the one who loves it but my 5 grandchildren, my children and my wife. We always buy a commercial ice cream, the branded one and it's too costly.

If you have a jar, some cream, sugar and cocoa you can make this VERY easy recipe: You don't need an ice cream machine and it's a lot cheaper than store bought ice cream.
Mason jar ice cream. When you need dessert fast! There's been a lot of talk about mason jars over recent months, both positive and negative. So this is a good point for me to make a

Actually, I don't like chocolate as flavor for ice cream. Though, if it is mixed with milk and not chocolatey, I will eat it. I love Cadbury's and Lindt's chocolate bars. Though when it comes to cake and ice cream, I don't want it. Please try making the "sili"or chili ice cream as what I have posted about. So, you make your own ice cream. How nice!

Oh Lindt, I can't get enough of that chocolate! Your sili looks great, I will have a try at that soon. Chilli in ice cream is so good. I attached a pic of a chocolate chilli ice cream I made a year or so back. It also had Mezcal which is similar to Tequila.

I have never thought to make a homemade Ice Cream. Is there a different in the taste? Which one is better or is it all the same?

I love the taste of it all to be honest. But the homemade stuff is really fresh, has more flavour, and doesn't have any of the extra additives. If you make some fresh brownies and mix into into homemade ice cream you'll be in heaven.
