Approximately This Much...


During all of our ice cream making shenanigans this summer, I ended up with extra cream and extra half and half after making all my ice cream recipes for our 4th of July family dinner dessert. My oldest son is a huge fan of chocolate ice cream, so I decided to make him some chocolate ice cream with the ingredients I had on hand. Warning...tasting will be required to make sure you get it just right!

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream


4-5 cups heavy whipping cream
4-5 cups half and half
1/2-1 cup sugar
1/2 cup or more of Hershey's chocolate syrup


In large bowl, mix together heavy whipping cream, half and half, sugar, and chocolate syrup. Taste to make sure have your desired amount of sweetness or flavor. Start with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of chocolate syrup and increase the amounts if you want it sweeter or more chocolate flavor.

Pour into ice cream canister and freeze in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

Source: My own mind.

Notes: This was really one of the best chocolate ice creams I have ever made. I used equal parts whipping cream and half and half and then, as noted above, I added the sugar and chocolate syrup and tasted it and repeated until it was just right.
