Hi Bold Bakers!

There is nothing more festive than the combination of chocolate and peppermint so I think you’ll really enjoy my Chocolate and Peppermint Ice Cream!

You can’t have the holidays without chocolate! Whether you love classic combinations like chocolate and cherry, chocolate and hazelnut, or you prefer just plain chocolate, it is a must when celebrating Christmas.

Some Bold Bakers get their chocolate and peppermint fill from my Homemade Starbucks Peppermint Mochas, Me, I like to make this super simple Chocolate and Peppermint Ice Cream. My homemade no machine ice cream starts just like my other Holiday Ice Cream flavors, with my 2 ingredient ice cream base. I love to use this Vanilla Ice Cream base as a way to use up that extra chocolate I always have around the house during the holidays. This rich Chocolate Ice Cream is made by adding good quality melted chocolate to Vanilla Ice Cream.  Then you add peppermint. I used crushed peppermint candy. This is also a great way to use up those extra candy canes.

Ingredients

  • 1 14 ounce (1 Can/ 400ml) sweetened condensed milk, cold
  • 2 cups (16oz/450 ml) heavy dairy cream, cold
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)
  • 3/4 cup (4 1/2oz/120g) chocolate, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup (3oz/90g) crushed peppermint candy

Instructions

  • Beat cold heavy dairy cream on medium in a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment (or using a hand mixer) until stiff peaks form.
  • Turn down the speed a little and pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream. (Stir in vanilla extract now if desired).
  • Then, turn up the machine speed again and whip until your mixture is thick and to stiff peaks.
  • Now you have your ice cream base add the melted cooled chocolate. Do this as quickly as you can, stirring constantly to keep the chocolate from seizing up and separating from the ice cream base. Once the chocolate has been mixed through, fold in the crushed peppermint candy.
  • Freeze at least 4 hours or overnight before scooping and serving.

Hi Gemma,

I had a question. I know you have so many ice cream flavors, but I was wondering if I could use the same recipes in my ice cream maker? I have a Cuisinart ICE-70 and I was going to ask you if the same ice cream base/mixture can be used and churned in an ice cream maker? Would I get the same results and would it work just as fine? And if so, have you tried that before?

Thank you!

Hello Gemma!

I was going to ask you if your ice cream base can be used in an ice cream maker? I have a kitchenaid ice cream attachment and I wanted to put it to good use and ask you if any or all of your ice creams can be used in an ice cream maker? Would it churn well and would I get the same results? Or is this recipe specifically designed for no ice cream maker? Have you tried it?

Thanks so much,
Rory

I made Chocolate Peppermint Ice Cream today and looks nothing like yours. Had soft peaks and never really became stiff. The color is also much lighter then your picture. I froze anyway hoping it tastes ok. Any ideas what I could of done wrong? Thanks!

My husband I made chocolate ice cream tonight. He was so excited when he saw me making my sweetened condensed milk earlier today. I was afraid that my scm was too thin but we just went for it because he was so excited.

Made this tonight, am very excited to eat it frozen tomorrow night (I did try a teaspoon or two or three… before putting it in the freezer… so good!). Put the bowl, whisk, and sweet condensed milk in the refrigerator with the cream for an hour so everything was cold. Came together well, I didn’t get the chocolate thoroughly combined as I was in a hurry BUT that’s not a big deal as that means some bites will have a little more chocolate in it than other bites. Thanks for another great recipe!
