As I continue my Ice Cream Making Series… I decided to take a basic ice cream … one that we’ve already made… and add in an ingredient… in this case… Chocolate Ice Cream with Fudge Brownie pieces. This is very basic and very easy… I figured it would be a natural next step to our Ice Cream making.
This simple recipe is the same as the Chocolate Ice Cream recipe… with chopped brownie added during the last 5 minutes of the freezing.
You can use any brownies you have… store bought… brownies made from a boxed mix.. or my Chewy Fudge Brownie recipe.
The original recipe is from Cuisinart. Their directions say to add ½- 1 cup of chopped day old brownies… which I did follow the instructions… however… in my opinion… this quantity is no where near enough to make a decent Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream…. as a result, I’m writing the recipe to add 2- 2 ½ cups of chopped brownie.
Unfortunately my photo doesn't show the chunks of brownie which ended up buried... it was good... but with more brownies it will definitely be better.
I also found that the paddle in the ice cream maker tended to break up the brownies even more.. which is okay.. but I wanted more chunks… my recommendation is to add about 1 cup during the freezing process… and when your done with the freezing process… the ice cream will have the consistency of soft ice cream… add more brownies in with larger chunks… about dime size… and stir them in with a cooking spoon.
If you need to see pictures of the step by step process of making the chocolate ice cream…. go to my Chocolate Ice Cream post.
So let’s get to some ice cream making…
Recipe: Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream
All you need:
1 cup whole milk
½ cup granulated sugar
8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, broken into ½ inch pieces
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2- 2 ½ cups chopped day old brownies
All you need to do:
To get the batter ready:
Heat the whole milk until it’s just bubbling around the edges (you can do this on the stove top or the microwave… I did mine in the microwave).
In a blender or food processor (I used the food processor) fitted with a metal blade, pulse to process the sugar and chocolate together until the chocolate is very finely chopped.
Add the hot milk and process until well blended and smooth.
Transfer the chocolate mixture to a medium size bowl… and let the chocolate mixture cool completely.
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla (add the vanilla to taste…I added 2 teaspoons totally).
Chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer.
To make the ice cream:
Put the freezer bowl on the base… put in the mixing arm… put the lid on over the freezer bowl and lock into position.
Flip on the machine.
Pour the chilled chocolate mixture through the ingredient spout into the freezer bowl.
Process for 25 minutes.
Add about 1 cup of the chopped brownies to the ice cream maker.
Continue to process for 5 minutes.
Turn off the ice cream maker, remove the lid and paddle.
Add the remaining chopped brownies and stir with a cooking spoon.
Pour into an airtight container and freeze at least 2 hours.
