Rocky Road Ice Cream

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

One of the boldest ice cream flavors around is Rocky Road! Who doesn’t love the classic combination of rich chocolate ice cream, crunchy toasted almonds and sweet fluffy marshmallows? We all know and love this childhood favorite but the truth is this flavor is for everyone.

My recipe for Rocky Road Ice Cream is over the top. It’s updated and made more complex in flavor by using good quality ingredients. My Rocky Road starts like any good homemade ice cream with a rich custard base. Eggs yolks, cream, milk and sugar are mixed with rich cocoa powder and melted chocolate. The chocolate is enhanced by vanilla extract and a healthy pinch of salt creating a flavor that is almost naturally malt-like.

After the chocolate base churns for a bit in my KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker attachment I add in all the good stuff and I do not skimp. A healthy dose of crushed, toasted almonds and mini marshmallows get mixed throughout before this sets up in the freezer. Because I make a lot of ice cream I’m a huge fan of Tovolo’s Glide-A-Scoop Ice Cream Tubs. They are really well insulated so they keep your ice cream free of freezer burn. Also the shape allows you to get the perfect scoop of ice cream.

All of these textures and flavors come together to create a super rich ice cream with loads of flavor in every bite. You must give this Rocky Road Ice Cream a try!

      Hi,

      All ice cream machines require that the bowl is pre frozen, it won’t work otherwise.

      Hope this helps,
      Gemma.

    Looks so good Gemma!!! Can’t wait to try it!! I have so many ice cream flavors and now you’ve really outdone yourself!! I wanted to ask you what kind of chocolate you used. Semisweet, milk, dark?
    Thank you so much!!

      Hi Elisabeth,
      I almost always use a bittersweet/semisweet chocolate, about 70% cocoa solids. this tends to melt nicely, is easily incorporated into other ingredients, and has good flavor.
      Milk chocolate can ‘seize’ really easily, that is turn into a stiff paste, when ti is heated, and does not really have a great flavor.
      I hope this is of help,
      Gemma 😉

    Hey gemma! I’ve been waiting for a recipe of ice cream using a maker for so long. I really love your method and it looks delish! But i can not see its recipe. So what are the measurments?

    Gemma, I am a huge fan of your homemade ice cream. I would love a coconut or orange creamsicle, but I’m not quite sure how to make it because coconut is a pretty mild flavor. I would appreciate it if you gave me some tips!

      Hi Amelia,
      A lot of the flavor of orange is actually in the zest! You can use this to make a well flavored popsicle, you can of course also use orange juice, but it will make the pop a little more icy, water/juice freezes hard too,
      Gemma 🙂
