Our ice cream recipe today combines the best of the classic chocolate variety and the summery refreshing peppermint type. The preparation of this unique mint and chocolate ice cream requires only a few steps and just four ingredients are needed. The deliciously crunchy chocolate pieces and the liquid filling of the VIVANI Fine Dark Peppermint Chocolate make this ice-cold treat something very special. In addition to the heavenly creamy taste, the fact that the ice cream is made entirely without an ice cream machine is also convincing.

In a bowl, combine condensed milk and peppermint extract.


Chop the peppermint chocolate and set aside.


Using a stand mixer, whip the heavy cream until it forms stiff peaks. Add a couple of tablespoons of whipped cream into the condensed milk and stir until incorporated. Add this mixture to the remaining cream and gently stir.


Finally add the chocolate and stir again with a spatula. Pour the mixture into a rectangular pan (like a loaf pan), spread it out and let it to set in the freezer.


You can serve it when it has the perfect consistency or store it in the freezer.

Tip: When you’re about to serve it, let it stand at room temperature until it has the perfect consistency, then scoop it with a tablespoon or ice cream scoop.
