Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe Variations

  • Rocky Road;
    Add some mini marshmallows and nuts. Almonds or peanuts are good in rocky road.
    Whisk them in with the cream & vanilla.
  • Fudge Swirl;
    After the final whisking, drizzle with ½ cup hot fudge sauce and swirl it in using a knife.

    This will give you ribbons of fudge when you grab a scoop of the ice cream, rather than it unintentionally getting all stirred in.

    This method would also be great for caramel sauce or peanut butter.
    Just warm the peanut butter a little first in the microwave (30 seconds should do) so you can pour it.
  • Mocha ice cream;
    Add in 1 Tbsp of espresso powder when you add the cream & vanilla.
