Amy Jean’s Kitchen: National Ice Cream Month

.

.

.

Last month, July, was world ice cream month so of course that

meant I had to try my hand at making some homemade ice cream!

Recruiting the help of my brother and friend Justin we tackled a

recipe out of the Gilmore Girls cookbook and walked away with an

ice cream that is any coffee and chocolate lover’s dream!

Check out the recipe for it below!

Chocolate Chocolate Chocolate Ice Cream – Eat Like a Gilmore

Honestly this ice cream turned out just as good, if not better, than

any store-bought I have ever had! 

.

Recipe: 

Ingredients:

Water

½ cup dark chocolate, 70% cacao or higher

½ cup milk chocolate chips

½ cup white chocolate

⅔ cup sweetened condensed milk

2 ¼ cup whole milk

½ cup coffee (we used espresso powder)

½ cup mini chocolate chips, optional

.

Steps:

Fill a large saucepan with 1-2 inches of water. Heat over medium

heat. Place a smaller saucepan inside (to mimic a double boiler).

Add dark chocolate, then milk chocolate, then white chocolate

to the smaller saucepan. Use a spatula to stir chocolate every few

minutes. (We skipped the whole double boiler recreation and just

melted the chocolate in a saucepan.)

.

Add sweetened condensed milk to chocolates. Mix thoroughly. Add

whole milk and coffee. Mix thoroughly. Once a thick, smooth, chocolate

sauce forms, remove from heat. Transfer sauce to a bowl

and refrigerate for 2 hours.

.

Remove chocolate sauce from the refrigerator. Turn on the ice

cream maker. Pour chocolate sauce into the maker and churn into

ice cream, for approximately 20 minutes. Times will vary based on

several factors (it took our ice cream about 30 minutes). Watch

for a thick, frosting-like consistency. (If you’re adding chocolate

chips, add them now, and then churn until fully combined.) Transfer

ice cream to a plastic container. Cover with a tight fitting lid, and freeze for 6 hours.

.

Serve.

.

Makes 4-6 servings.
