Satisfy your sweet tooth in minutes. Delve into your favorite classic with my homemade chocolate ice cream recipe.
Hi Bold Bakers!
Chocolate-fiends and ice cream lovers unite! My homemade chocolate ice cream recipe is just for you. I spend every summer creating new ice creams for you Bold Bakers and with the season’s heat just around the corner, I’m excited to bring you even more. This year it hit me: I’ve shared almost every flavor I could think of but I’ve never given you guys a recipe for good old chocolate ice cream. With my 2-ingredient, No Machine Ice Cream as a base this recipe is almost too easy. You’ll have no excuse not to make it!
How to Make My Homemade Ice Cream Base
To make my homemade chocolate ice cream, you start with my 2-Ingredient No Machine Ice Cream master recipe. For those of you who have never tried it, my homemade ice cream is simply made up of heavy whipping cream and condensed milk. Once whipped up, these two ingredients will yield you a creamy blank canvas for your Ice Cream Base. My ice cream recipes can be made completely without a machine and don’t require any churning once they’ve been frozen.
The additional vanilla will keep your ice cream soft and scoopable. You can make vanilla and a variety of extracts with my homemade extracts recipe.
How Do You Make Chocolate Ice Cream
You can whip up my 2 ingredient ice cream base in 10 minutes flat. Once you’ve combined your condensed milk into your whipping cream, your favorite chocolate will become the star of the show. Not cocoa powder. Not chocolate chips. It’s melted chocolate that gives this homemade ice cream a super rich and deeply fudgy flavor. After just 6 hours in the freezer, this ice cream is thick and silky-smooth. Prepare to enter chocolate heaven.
What Can I Substitute for Condensed Milk?
Sweetened condensed milk is essential in this recipe. If you aren’t able to get your hands on some, definitely refer to my condensed milk recipe. This ingredient cannot be substituted.
How Long Does Homemade Ice Cream Last?
My homemade chocolate ice cream can be kept in the freezer for as long as store-bought ice cream. If stored in an airtight container, your ice cream will keep for up to 6 weeks. You’ll always have your chocolate fix on hand.

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 2/3 cup (4oz/115g) of bittersweet chocolate, melted. (70% or so cocoa solids)
- Using a hand or stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment whip the cold cream on medium/ high speed until soft peaks form.
- Turn off the machine and pour the condensed milk into the whipped cream.
- Turn the speed up to high and whisk until the mixture is thick and stiff peaks. Turn off the machine and stir in vanilla extract and the seeds scraped from 1 vanilla pod.
- Introduce a little of the ice cream base to the cooled melted chocolate to loosen it up. Then quickly introduce this to the base and mix through. Work fast or the chocolate will stiffen.
