chocolate ice cream recipeNormally I do not go for chocolate ice cream.  Definitely a vanilla base kind of girl.  But we were having a party.  And I had a brand new ice cream maker that was calling to me.  “Bree, my bowl is frozen again, don’t you want to make something else?”  Why yes, yes I do.  Not only do I want to make something new, but so do my children.  They are way into the ice cream making.  They think that it is magic.  You mix some stuff together, pour it into a really cool machine and 30 minutes later they have ice cream.  I love this ice cream.  It is not super chocolaty, not super sweet, just perfect.

Do you ever tend to run out of the same thing over and over again to the point that every time you go to use it you forget that you are out of it?  That is the way that I am about cocoa powder.  Now, I don’t pull one off of the shelf, I pull two when at the grocery store.  If it is on sale I get three.  In this case it was three.  In this case, I should have read to package carefully.  But I didn’t.  I thought that I was buying cocoa powder but I was buying ground sweet chocolate.  Delicious?  Yes.  Good for baking?  No.  I could not figure out why my chocolate cakes were sinking in the middle.  Oh yeah, the ground chocolate was melting.  But this delicious ground chocolate is perfect for ice cream making.  Now I finally have a use for all of my hoarded ground chocolate.

    I found your blog via foodgawker and now I am as addicted to it as I am Pioneer Woman. Your photos are gorgeous! I have a couple blogs and a new Nikon, but my photos are still leaving something to be desired. A few days ago I read that you are in Sacramento…me, too! In fact, I see Brenda Bisharat has commented on some of your posts and she has taken pictures of my girls. Small world!
    Anyway, my Mother’s day gift to myself was an ice cream maker and we made your cookies and cream ice cream last night. Delicious! Will definitely be trying this one over the weekend, or today when my bowl refreezes.
    I can’t wait to make the Roquamole and will be making the Turkey Pesto Meatballs next week for a new mommy and her family.
    Thanks for all the recipes and beautiful photos!

      that is about the sweetest thing that anyone has said about my blog. Thank you. What a small world!!! Brenda is one of my best friends here. She literally lives around the corner from me as well. Love her. If you need any camera help, let me know and maybe I can help you.

  2. Deanna says:

    I’ve always been a chocolate ice cream girl, but lately I’ve been eating a lot of vanilla. Maybe it’s time to go back to my roots.

    And those are some beautiful children you’ve got.

  3. Memoria says:

    I love making chocolate ice cream. It looks so luscious. You should double or triple chocolate ice cream (cocoa powder + melted chocolate + chocolate chips/chunks)! Since you’re a vanilla person, I guess you wouldn’t be too excited about that, though. Anyway, I love love love your process photos, and your kids are too cute for words.

    • bakedbree says:

      no, I am pretty excited about that actually. I am thinking a milk chocolate ice cream with mini chips. I love crunchy ice cream. Aww, you are so sweet. They are pretty cute, but I think that I have a bias.

  4. Such a gorgeous looking chocolate ice cream! Yum!

    Looks like the kids had fun :)

    • bakedbree says:

      thanks. We did have fun. They are amazed that something liquid goes into the machine and ice cream comes out. Never ceases to amaze them.

  5. Carla says:

    This is exactly the recipe I’ve been looking for — cocoa powder instead of chocolate solids. Your kids are adorable helping you. Mine also have to be in on the ice cream action. =)

    • bakedbree says:

      It is really good. Next time, I might try to melt chocolate and make a really rich base, but this was so yum. Easy and perfect for the kids to help out with.

      • bakedbree says:

        I also think that the brownn sugar vs white sugar adds just a touch of depth also. Rich without being overpowering.

  6. Anya says:

    Delicious! Can you recommend the type of ice-cream maker, please?

  7. LaurieK says:

    I just LOVE visiting your blog! The images are divine and I can’t wait to try your ice cream recipe. You are SO talented in SO many ways!

  13. Hello! I just wanted to thank you for posting this tasty recipe. I tried it out last night and of course LOVED it! All your pictures look incredible, and it did taste as good as it looked! I enjoy seeing you have your kids “help” you in the kitchen, I do the same, they just love to help, you are a good mom! I mentioned your site in my recent post: http://seasontheday.blogspot.com/2011/03/homemade-chocolate-ice-cream.html Thanks again for the idea!

    can you use agave nectar in place of the brown sugar, if so, how much?

    • bakedbree says:

      Yes, but I really have no idea how much. Agave nectar is a lot more potent than sugar. You will have to play with the proportions.

  19. I would love to make this today! Is that a typo or do you really use 1 Tablespoon of vanilla extract?

  20. Robin says:

    Just wondering what proportion of sugar you would suggest using with unsweetened cocoa powder? I can only get Ghirardelli when my inlaws visit (or when we visit them) as it’s not available in my area, so all I have to work with is Fry’s unsweetened cocoa powder. Thanks for the recipe!

  21. Allison M says:

    I made this tonight and have to say it’s some of the best chocolate ice cream that I’ve eaten. I used regular Hershey’s cocoa and it turned out just fine. Thanks so much for a great easy recipe!

    • bakedbree says:

      Thank you Allison! Glad that you liked it. It is also a great base recipe. You can make a million different variations.

  22. Ms Slim says:

    Thanks for the recipe. I made it last night and can’t wait to try it. I eat chocolate ice cream every night and just got the ice cream maker for my birthday! I liked the fact that your recipe didn’t use raw eggs. I’ve been using chocolate syrup at the end and later it within along with brownies all cut up. Yum!

  23. Erin Watkins says:

    I received a Cuisinart Ice Cream bowl attachment for Christmas! We have made one recipe so far: cookies & cream. The recipe seemed to take quite a while: mixing eggs/sugar/milk/cream then letting it chill in the fridge for 8 hours…then putting it in the bowl. I’m happy to see that your recipe is just a “mix and pour” kind of recipe. I am listening to the churning of my machine right now! I have shared your website with one of my other “foodie” friends! I just recently started as a stylist with Homecoming Trunk Shows…check out my website: http://www.erinwatkins.shophts.com It isn’t a food website, but, hey….us girls need to look fabulous – even while cooking in the kitchen! Best wishes with your blog and website! I added about 4 tablespoons of Jif peanut butter at the end of the churning cycle: oh my!!! Y.U.M.

  24. Suzanne says:

    I found your website by yahoo and was wondering if your chocolate ice cream comes out thick? The one that Cuisinart gives comes out thick.

    • bakedbree says:

      I don”t really know what you mean by this? It comes out like soft serve, then needs to be frozen solid.

  25. Memorie Jones says:

    Hey Bree! I was wondering if you can make this in an ice cream freezer and let the freezer run, until it stops? Do you know if that would work? I wanted to try to make it without having to put it in the freezer for an extra two hours. Thanks!

    • bakedbree says:

      I am not really sure. I know that you will not get the same texture, it will be more like soft serve. Ice cream makers, even commercial ones only get it started and the rest of the work happens in the freezer.
