Chocolate Suprise:Homemade Chocolate Icecream

This super creamy chocolate ice cream perfect for the summer time doesn’t require any special equipment. It can be customised by adding in some of your favourite ingredients, like almonds, marshmallows or gummy bears for a Rocky Road version.

One 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup unsweetened natural cocoa powder
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Pinch fine salt
Metal loaf pan ( chilled)
2 cups heavy cream, cold
Rocky Road: 1/2 cup chocolate-covered almonds, crushed, and 2/3 cup mini marshmallows
Malted: two 5-ounce boxes chocolate malted milk balls, halved or coarsely chopped
Smoky and Spicy: 1 tablespoon chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, chopped


Whisk together the condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. The mixture will become very thick; set aside.Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes. Fold about 1 cup of the whipped cream into the cocoa mixture with a rubber spatula until combined, then fold the lightened mixture into the whipped cream until well blended. Pour into a chilled 9-by-5-by-3-inch metal loaf pan, and freeze, covered, until thick and creamy, like soft-serve, about 2 hours. Swirl in any desired mix-ins with a spoon. Continue to freeze, covered, until solid and scoopable, about 3 hours more.
