How to make Nutella Ice Cream?

Over a large bowl, beat the heavy cream in high speed until stiff peaks form. Mix in the sweetened condensed milk, 3/4 Cup Nutella, vanilla extract and salt.

Spread in an even layer half of the mixture in a freezable airtight container, or a loaf pan. Add 1/4 Cup of the remaining chocolate spread, using a spoon to make ribbons of Nutella over the fist layer, then use a butter knife to swirl it around.

Add half of the crushed Ferrero Rocher on top, sprinkling evenly.

Pour the remaining ice cream Nutella mixture on top, covering the first layer completely. Add the leftover Nutella and swirl with a butter knife and the remaining crushed Ferrero Rocher on top of the ice cream.

Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight before serving.

Expert tips for making Homemade Ice Cream

  • Freeze the metal bowl and whisk attachment for 10 minutes prior to using them for a quicker whipping process
  • For a creamier ice cream, beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form. For a firmer ice cream, beat the cream until stiff peaks form
  • Make sure the ice cream is well covered before going into the freezer to avoid ice crystals and freezer burn. If you feel your freezer-safe container does not close tight enough, place a piece of plastic wrap between the lid and the container, then secure the lid on top.
  • Use the ingredients called for and do not substitute! full fat sweetened condensed milk and not low fat, low sugar condensed milk. Full Fat heavy whipping cream and not any of the low fat substitutions are key for a soft and creamy ice cream.
  • Let your ice cream set in the freezer for at least 6 hours prior to serving.
  • You can substitute the Ferrero Rocher for any other nut of your choice, or add-in of your choice. Use hazelnuts, chocolate chips, chocolate sauce or even chopped strawberries instead.
