Easy Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream


  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • Stir sugar, cream, and milk into a saucepan over low heat until sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat.
  • Stir in vanilla extract and chill mix thoroughly – I like to chill mine overnight.
  • Pour cold ice cream mix into an ice cream maker, turn on the machine, and churn according to manufacturer's directions, 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Place in freezer to harden 2 to 3 hours.
