This recipe is from Thermomix's Rocky Road Ice Cream Recipe. I liked the ice cream that much!

I have reduced the sugar by half in my recipe compared to the original recipe as I found it too sweet for my taste.

I used Callebaut chocolate, and did not use the cocoa for my version, and it was rich and creamy, chocolatey and delicious!

Real chocolate ice cream

    This is the best, and it does taste exactly like chocolate paddle pops like previous comment says

    Made this for my family as I can’t eat chocolate. They all LOVED it- said it tastes just like chocolate paddle pops.
    To a fair bit longer to firm before I could rechurn but well worth the wait according to my family.

    a sprig of this:

    Yes! You can absolutely store it in the freezer.

    So delicious!

    I halved the recipe, used Double Cream (it was all I had) and chilled it overnight after cooking the custard. Churned it in my ice cream maker the next day and it was divine. This will definitely be my go-to recipe.

    can anyone comment on whether this all has to be eaten or can it be stored un the freezer upon completion of the recipe?

    Thanks in advance!!! can't wait to try

    Now on my regular ice cream list. So yummy

    A beautiful creamy ice cream that makes a large quantity! I added the cocoa which added even more depth.

    Don't do like I did and put it into the freezer overnight, which was about 8hrs instead of the suggested 3-4hrs (I was impatient to have it ready to mix next morning). It sets too hard and makes it hard to cut and mix. Poor Thermie had to work very hard even after softening the ice cream for a while! Next time I'll stick to the suggested freezing time! Thanks for sharing!

    PS I'm thinking that I might try this recipe and change it up to make vanilla ice-cream by omitting the chocolate and cocoa and adding extra vanilla.

    I used thickened cream and it was perfect! Cheers

    this ice cream was one of the best I have ever eaten! I made mine with thickened cream and it was amazing

    I made this yesterday. It was sooo delicious. I used long life milk- as that's all I had. I let the mixture cool in fridge then put it in the icecream churner. Perfect!!
