My sister's birthday is tomorrow. She loves chocolate and coffee, She recently moved to a very nice retirement community where she has her own apartment. Occasionally they have a Java Chocolate Ice Cream with chocolate chunks in it. She said that they don't have it often and it is gone quickly when they do. I thought I would try to replicate it and I must say that my version surely is delicious and very easy to make.
Whipping the cream for two minutes and the coffee/condensed milk mixture for one minute helped to make it freeze smoothe without getting hard. She will enjoy it -surely!
1Chop the Dove bar into small chunks. Set aside. (It will not take the whole Dove bar to make 1/2 cup chunks –so you can enjoy the rest of the candy bar as a treat.).
2In a cold bowl (I use a medium aluminum mixing bowl), use an electric mixer and cold beaters to beat the whipping cream. Beat for 2 minutes on high (notice the picture). Whipped cream will hold its shape.
3In a larger bowl, blend the sweetened condensed milk and the cold coffee, beat with electric mixer for one minute.
4Fold the whipped cream into the sweetened condensed milk coffee mixture, until blended.
5Put into a 2-quart glass or metal casserole dish or loaf pan. Place in freezer for 2 hours, until it starts to freeze (Middle will still be soupy, but the sides firm.).
6Remove from freezer and fold in the chocolate chunks (I mix it in a mixing bowl -but you can leave it in the casserole dish while stirring in the chocolate chunks. Make sure that they are dispersed throughout the ice cream.
7If you removed the ice cream from the casserole dish to a bowl -return it to the dish. Place back into to the freezer section of the refrigerator, and freeze 2 more hours or until desired consistency.
8Makes about 1-1/2 quarts of deliciously easy coffee chocolate chunks ice cream. Enjoy a Scoop today!
9I will take and post a picture of my sister enjoying her ice cream, later. Well, I forgot to take a picture of the birthday girl enjoying the ice cream (and she did), but here is a picture of both of my sisters and me taken back in January 2013 -Virginiais in the middle. However, you will have to click on the picture at the top of the screen -I couldn't get it to upload.
