When I say this is the best Simple Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe, I mean it! It’s just as creamy and delicious as gourmet chocolate ice cream, and it only takes minutes to prepare.
It’s creamy,and so easy to make and You don’t need an ice cream maker for this simple chocolate ice cream recipe.
You just need 4 ingredients to put it together: sweetened condensed milk, heavy cream, chocolate syrup and your favorite mix-in ingredient (I use crushed candy bars).
If you’re one of those people who needs to add vanilla extract to every dessert you can also add a teaspoon of vanilla without throwing off the taste, texture, or consistency of the chocolate ice cream.

1 14- oz. can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups cold heavy cream
