kit kat ice cream recipeWhat I really should call this ice cream is “Kitty Cat” ice cream. My children are getting to the point where homemade ice cream is no longer impressive to them. They are so jaded. I try to tell them that not all mom’s make their kids ice cream from scratch. But they don’t believe me. When I made this, they were skeptical, but once they tasted it, they begged for more. “Mama, can I have some more kitty cat ice cream?” Maybe I still can impress them every now and again.

This recipe comes from my new friend Susan Whetzel’s (we met at the glorious Dole event that I will tell you about later this week) book The Everything Ice Cream, Gelato, and Frozen Desserts Cookbook. It has tons of great recipes for all things frozen, and lots of helpful tips. I heard from a little bird the Susan might be having a gigantic giveaway over on her blog today. Go on over and check it out. And while you are at it, buy her book and have a summer filled with frozen deliciousness. I promise, you will not be sorry.

    Can you make this without an ice cream maker? What else can I use instead of malted milk powder?

    • bakedbree says:

      Not this kind, and you can just leave it out.

      • Dani says:

        We loved this ice cream so much I made an alternative version this week – one without an ice cream maker (I do get a little lazy sometimes). I thought I’d share with those who do not have an ice cream maker, but want to try your wonderful ice cream. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s a pretty good alternative!

        If I’m not imposing, and you’d like to post for your readers, the recipe follows:

        500ml heavy whipping cream
        1 can sweetened condensed milk
        then your -
        2 tbsp cocoa powder
        1/4 c. malted milk powder
        1 tsp. vanilla
        kit kat bars

        Whip all (except kit kats) together until stiff peaks form, then mix in the kit kats. Throw in the freezer overnight and it’s done!

    As usual, your photos are beautiful. I love making my own ice cream too and my kids are ridiculously spoiled with homemade food . . . so much so, that they just want junk food from the store instead of what I make them :)

  22. Judy says:

    Sounds delish! Is the malted milk powder just for flavor or does it have an additional purpose? I don’t care for the malted milk flavor and would like to leave it out. Not sure what to substitute though. Any ideas?

    II hope this message comes through. Are the eggs cooked long enough? I am always worried about salmonella when I see an ice cream recipe with eggs in it. It looks delicious though and would really like to give it a try

    This looks delicious! Ok, off the wall question – where is that adorable bowl from?!

    • bakedbree says:

      I actually bought them at a farmers market, but when I get home (I am in the airport right now) I will see if I can find out who makes them.

  28. Milka?! Is that common in the US now? If it is, woohoo! My German husband will be very happy to learn that he won’t have to live on Hershey’s when we move back.

    And this ice cream looks fantastic! Homemade ice creams is ALWAYS impressive and I’m sure one day your kids will learn how lucky they are to have a mom who makes all this wonderful homemade food. :)

    Hi Bree! You have a beautiful blog…I always look forward to seeing what you are up to in the kitchen. I made your Kit Kat Ice Cream last weekend and pretty much demolished all of it by myself (very dangerous stuff!). I adore Kit Kat’s and this was so fun to make. The addition of malted milk powder was just the right touch. Thanks for sharing!

  40. Dani says:

    I made this for my son (wink) this weekend and it was amazing!

    I try to save calories where I can, so with sugar being over 700 cal./cup (yikes!), I did substitute it with a stevia based baking sweetener. I can tell it’s not real sugar, but the rest is so wonderful it doesn’t bother me at all. The only other thing I did differently was to put the kit kats in a gallon zip lock bag and crush them. I was careful not to pulverize them so we still got mostly whole pieces. It worked great!

    Thank you – thank you – thank you for sharing!
