How to make this Chocolate Marshmallow Ice Cream
Just a few simple steps to make this ice cream:
- First, whip the heavy cream over a large mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Add the condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt and cacao powder and mix until well incorporated
2. Marshmallow fluff at room temperature can be more difficult to swirl, so you can slightly heat it in the microwave in low heat for a few seconds, to soften it a bit
3. Pour half of the chocolate mixture into an airtight container, loaf pan or any freezable container. Add half of the softened marshmallow mixture in dollops throughout the pan, then swirl using a knife. Add the rest of the ice cream mixture, covering the first layer completely, then repeat the process with the remaining half of the marshmallow fluff, swirling it around. Cover and freeze overnight or for 8 hours
4. Serve with chocolate syrup or melted chocolate if desired!
Tips and Tricks
- Make sure you have all of the ice cream ingredients before you begin. There’s nothing worse that realizing there’s an ingredient missing in your pantry in the middle of making a recipe!
- If you want a more rich chocolate ice cream flavor, substitute the regular cocoa powder with Dutch processed cocoa powder
- Sometimes, cocoa powder becomes lumpy, so be sure to sift it before you add it to the ice cream mixture to avoid lumps in your ice cream
- Air exposure to the ice cream can cause freezer burn. Cover the freezer-safe container with a lid, or use plastic wrap or aluminum foil if using a pan to avoid ice crystals
How long does Ice Cream last
Homemade Ice Cream can last in the freezer for around 2 weeks if stored correctly; after that, crystals may form and texture could change.
