Triple Chocolate, Double Stuff Ice Cream
By Lizzie on September 18, 2019
Hey Everyone! I know it’s been a few weeks since my last post, but I kind of feel like things are getting back to normal after another hurricane scare here in Florida. We waited and watched Dorian completely devastate the Bahamas and felt absolutely sick thinking of those poor people and animals too that have been affected by that horrific storm. By the time it came our way, it had been downgraded to a tropical storm. Even though we were very relieved, we had booked and had to pay for a hotel for 3 nights inland, which isn’t much fun with a little Yorkie who doesn’t like new places. 🙂 It’s becoming a frustrating and scary thing each year having to deal with these monster storms. As I write this, there is another one brewing in the Atlantic 🙁 I am hosting a fundraiser to benefit the animals affected by Dorian and am baking with all proceeds going straight to Best Friends, an animal rescue group that works with all local shelters to find animals quality homes.
I’ve been wanting to create some really fun new recipes lately and Williams Sonoma had a sale on Ice Cream makers, so I got myself one. The last one I had was from about 25 years ago when my kids were little. I was always creating something fun with it, so for only about 40 dollars, I got a new one! They are really great for making the smoothest tasting ice cream and are really a lot of fun to have! I came up with my latest flavor after deciding I wanted to make a rich chocolate base and add Oreos because my hubby loves them. He ended up coming home with Double Stuff ones and I used them, which turned out really well after all 🙂 I hope you love this treat as much as I do! Let me know what you think…I always love hearing from my fellow bakers!! xoxo
Some of the yummy ingredients in this recipe!!
Yummy melted chocolate! Only use the very best variety!
It’s such a simple recipe!
Pour the base into a bowl and add ice to another bowl to chill it for awhile before you freeze it!
After the base has cooled, pour it into your chilled ice cream bowl
Add your paddle attachment, and let your ice cream maker run for about 30 minutes.
How scrumptious does this look!!
Pour the ice cream into a freezer container and fold in the oreo pieces.
Freeze overnight or up to 6 to 8 hours and you get THIS!!!
Add some whipped cream and this is such a special dessert!!
Triple Chocolate, Double Stuff Ice Cream
Makes : 1 quart Prep time: 20 minutes Freeze time: 6 to 8 hours
3 ounces best quality milk chocolate
3 ounces best quality dark chocolate
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
2 cups Organic Valley whole milk
3/4 cup Dixie Crystals granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon best quality vanilla extract
1/4 unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
14 Double Stuff Oreos, chopped into good sized pieces
Chill the ice cream bowl in the freezer the night before if you can, or several hours before you make the ice cream.
Chop the chocolate into pieces. Place it in a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and melt it for another 30 seconds until it is completely smooth after you stir it for a bit. Set aside to cool.
In a heavy bottomed saucepan, heat the milk, cream, condensed milk, sugar and cocoa powder. Bring to a simmer over medium high heat, whisking constantly. Whisk until smooth and the cocoa and the sugar are dissolved. This should take about 3-5 minutes. Don’t worry if there are tiny specks of cocoa in the mixture. You can strain it later, or not at all. It does dissolve, and I didn’t strain my ice cream.
Remove from the heat.
Add in the vanilla extract and the melted chocolate.
Whisk together until the mixture is smooth and all the chocolate is incorporated.
At this point, you can strain the mixture if you have any large cocoa lumps.
Pour the mixture into a medium sized bowl. Place that bowl into a larger bowl filled with ice. You need to cool down the base before you put it in the ice cream maker.
Chill the mixture for 30 minutes. Make sure that no ice gets into the ice cream from the larger bowl! (See my photos above regarding cooling the ice cream base down).
Pour the mixture into your frozen ice cream maker bowl.
Churn for 30 minutes.
Pour the ice cream into a freezer safe container and stir in the chopped Oreos.
Make sure your ice cream is in an airtight container and freeze for up to a month!!
Make some homemade, sweetened whipped cream and top your ice cream with some hot fudge too for a super special dessert!
