How to make Ice Cream with a Kitchenaid Mixer

You’re going to LOVE how easy this is! It only takes about 20 minutes to prep your ice cream, and then the rest of the time is just waiting for it to chill. Oh, and once you learn how to make this chocolate ice cream, you can make pretty much any flavor of ice cream you want in your Kitchenaid!

Step 1.

Chocolate Kitchenaid Ice Cream Recipe (4)

Start with 6 egg yolks, 2/3 cup of unsweetened sifted cocoa powder and 1 1/3 cups sugar. Add 1 1/3 cups of half and half and whisk together until smooth.

Then, transfer to a double boiler and cook over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes stirring constantly until it looks like this and coats the back of a wooden spoon nicely……

Step 2.

Carefully remove your ice cream mixture from the double boiler, add 4 cups of heavy whipping cream and whisk it together. After you have incorporated the heavy whipping cream place your bowl in the refrigerator to chill for about 2-3 hours.

Next place your chilled ice cream mixture into your ice cream freezer (or if you’re like me… your KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment). You’ll want to churn the ice cream for about 20 minutes or so until it’s firm.

We All Scream for Ice Cream!

Woohoo! That’s all there is to this simple Kitchenaid ice cream recipe. Now you can feel confident making your own batch. 🙂

Once you’ve finished making your chocolatey goodness, you can eat it right away for a soft-serve style, or you can put it into a container and freeze it for later. I like to put my ice cream into small reusable plastic containers for easy single servings (when the kids go to bed… I like to sneak a bowl). OR…. you could:

Store Homemade Ice Cream in this Insulated 2.5 Quart Ice Cream Tub!

The tub is nice and slender and fits perfectly in my freezer (and even freezer door!). And I love how easily my ice cream scoop glides thru the ice cream thanks to the nice design of this container!

It even comes in four different colors! You can get it in a 1.5 quart sized container too.
