Double Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – No Churn

Jump to Recipe

Decadent, creamy, richly flavoured chocolate ice cream loaded with tiny chunks of dark luscious chocolate. That’s all I need to know. I am there – double scoop please! Incredibly quick and easy to prepare, this ice cream will take roughly 10 minutes to whip up; the only downside is waiting a few hours for it to freeze! But it really is worth the wait. This recipe is adapted from my No Churn Ice Cream – Core Recipe. For other easy ice cream ideas, take a look.

Whenever I visit an ice cream shop, I make a little pact with myself that I will try something other than chocolate – it never works. I see chocolate ice cream and I’m in there – if I’m going for a double scoop I may add another flavour but I cannot resist chocolate. I am very, very fussy and trust me, this recipe is amazing! Even Emma was impressed – she is much more of a sorbet person but LOVES this ice cream with all the delectable bits of chocolate.

How to make Double Chocolate Chip Ice Cream – No Churn

Collect all your ingredients together:

  • sweetened condensed milk
  • cocoa, sieved
  • instant coffee, sieved
  • salt
  • double cream
  • finely chopped dark chocolate – I use 70% cocoa solids

Simply whisk the sieved cocoa, coffee and salt into the condensed milk until well mixed. Add the double cream and whip until thickened. Fold in the chopped chocolate and pour into a freezer proof container. Cover with baking parchment, seal with a lid and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours. Voila!

NB You cannot taste the coffee, it is there as it helps to enhance the flavour of the chocolate. I always add a tiny bit of salt – it really helps to enhance all the flavours.

Also, please note that when I photographed this, I made 6 ice creams in a day and halved the ingredients for each ice cream and this is reflected in the photographs – there is only so much we can eat! Therefore, the quantities you make using the recipe below will be double that shown.

A few hours later!

    This disappeared very quickly!
    Super rich and chocolatey with the little chocolate chips adding some texture.
    Made the heatwave of 30+ degrees we had so much better!!!!!!!!
    Recommended to eat with fresh strawberries (makes it feel a little healthier too…)

      I am so pleased you loved it so much – I agree the chopped chocolate adds texture and really adds to the ice cream. Fresh strawberries would be lovely. Susan X🌼
