Tweaking recipes is something I do quite a bit. I start out with a recipe making it just as written the first time. This is so I am sure of what the final results will be. After that, I kind of go crazy. A dash of this and a hint of that. Change the protein or add a sauce. Anything to make it more delicious than it already was.

I didn’t touch this week’s recipe because my friend Bonnie has been perfecting it at her home for the past several months. When she told me about it, I just had to try this easy summer treat.

For Chocolate Spice Ice Cream, you will need…Chocolate Spice Ice Cream
1 bar 100% Cacao chocolate
1 bar 60% Cacao chocolate
1½ c. black coffee, hot and strong
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 can evaporated milk (Shake well before opening)
6 c. heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 pkg. Dream Whip powder
4 tbsp. cinnamon
2 gallon zipper bags

This ice cream reminds me a lot of the Mexican Fudge I make around Christmas time every year. I just love the combination of cinnamon and chocolate. It’s perfect any time of year.

Start by chopping all of the chocolate into small chunks. The smaller the better, because you are going to melt it.

Speaking of melting, once the chocolate is chopped, place it in a small bowl and pour the hot coffee over it. Stir well and set aside to cool.

In a separate large bowl, combine the canned milks, whipping well.

Whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla and whip until frothy. Then add in the Dream Whip and the cinnamon. Did I mention you need a really big bowl?

Finally, mix in the chocolate and coffee mixture to the cream. Make sure to scrape all of the chocolate out of the bowl. Whisk well until foamy.

Put together two gallon bags, one inside the other, and place in a bowl for stability. Pour the ice cream into the inside bag. Remove as much air as you can from the inner bag and seal. Next, seal the outside bag around it. Shake vigorously for about a minute.

Place in the freezer for 12 to 24 hours to firm up.  It is going to freeze hard because of the coffee, so be sure to let it sit out a few minutes prior to serving.

This ice cream is super smooth, creamy and the flavors are out of this world. Thanks, Bonnie, for tweaking this recipe and sharing it with me so I could share it with everyone else. I’m always looking for new recipes, so be sure to send some my way. From all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
