Homemade ice cream without a machine !

SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURESIs your freezer jammed with items ready to cook for the holiday season?  Are you looking for a place to chill your ice cream bowl before making a holiday dessert?

Well..I found a delicious recipe from Martha Stewart’s One Pot cookbook.  It was recently released and I have already made many recipes which are nothing short of fantastic.  I will be posting many of them on the blog, so stay tuned for some great time-saving recipes.

This coffee chocolate chip ice cream is made in a large bowl, and mixed with a hand mixer.  Then it is frozen for at least 12 hours and then is ready to serve to guests.  It is creamy, smooth, and oh so tasty.  Here is a recipe for when you don’t have access to your ice cream machine or when you just did not think far enough ahead to have the bowl frozen for use.

To make the recipe, find these ingredients first:  1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract, 2 tablespoons instant espresso powder, 3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk, coarse salt, 2 cups heavy cream and 3 ounces of bittersweet chocolate–chopped.

In a large bowl, combine the vanilla and coffee powder.  Stir until dissolved.  Then stir in the condensed milk and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.


With an electric mixer on high, beat the cream until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes.  Next, fold the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture.  Fold in the chocolate.  Transfer to an ice cream freezer container.  Cover.  Freeze for at least 12 hours. I froze mine overnight.  Let stand a few minutes prior to scooping.


Yum. Yum. Yum.
