Chocolate Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

Remember that hot fudge sauce that I posted last week? Well, it was so good ON ice cream, that I decided to throw it IN some ice cream too. Um yea, best idea EVER.

Chocolate Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

I just made a simple chocolate ice cream and layered in some of that hot fudge sauce. The awesome thing about that sauce is that it doesn’t get super hard when it freezed. It stays nice and gooey and chewy. Believe me, this will NOT be the last ice cream recipe you guys will see with a fudge swirl in it… In fact, I’ve already made another variation and have a few other ideas in mind.

Chocolate Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

This was the first time I tried to make a swirl in an ice cream recipe. I was a bit skeptical of the process of simply layering ice cream with fudge sauce. But when you go to scoop it, it swirls right up. Weird, but true. So don’t be tempted to swirl the fudge sauce in to the ice cream like I was. Just trust the process and you won’t regret it.

Chocolate Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

Ingredients:

3 cups full fat coconut milk, divided
3 tablespoons dark chocolate cocoa powder
5 ounces dark chocolate, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
pinch of salt
5 large egg yolks
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 to 2 cups hot fudge sauce

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of the coconut milk with the cocoa powder. Warm over medium-high heat, whisking to dissolve the cocoa. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 30 seconds, whisking constantly. Remove the pan from the heat, mix in the chocolate and whisk until melted and smooth.

Stir in another 1 cup of coconut milk. Transfer this mixture to a medium-large mixing bowl. Set a fine mesh sieve over the top.

In the same saucepan, combine the rest of the milk, sugar and salt and warm the mixture over medium-high heat.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the egg yolks. When the milk mixture is warm, gradually whisk the milk into the egg yolks, beating constantly.

Return the egg-milk mixture to the saucepan and continue heating over medium-high heat, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom of the pan with a spatula, until the mixture is slightly thickened and coats the back of a spoon. Remove from the heat, pour through the mesh sieve into the chocolate-cream mixture and stir to blend. Stir in the vanilla.

Cover with plastic wrap and chill the mixture in the refrigerator for several hours or overnight. Once the ice cream mixture is well chilled, freeze in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

After it finishes churning, layer ice cream with hot fudge sauce, starting with hot fudge sauce. Do not swirl the two together. Freeze until hard before serving.

    My ice cream with coconut milk keeps freezing solid, into a very solid rock. Any ideas what the problem is? I have a recipe going up tomorrow, with a disclaimer that you need to defrost it if you freeze it overnight, heh…

      Hm. I have noticed that some of my ice creams do need to sit on the counter for a bit before they’re scoopable. But I haven’t noticed if it’s related to the coconut milk or not… Mine is usually fine after sitting out for 10 minutes or so…
