Fudge Ripple Ice Cream - A Simple No-Cook Ice Cream for Summer

Fudge Ripple Ice Cream - A Simple No-Cook Ice Cream for Summer / www.delightfulrepast.com

I need some Fudge Ripple Ice Cream, don’t you? All across the US, summer is setting temperature records. So it’s time for ice cream. And I don’t mean ice cream with a cooked base because, I don’t know about you, but the less time I spend at the stove right now the better. 

So this is a “simple” (meaning uncooked) vanilla ice cream with swirls of a super easy fudge sauce that takes just a minute or two on the stove. I made it up several years ago with ingredients I always have on hand and without the corn syrup that, as you may know, I so hate.

I used to have the Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream-Sorbet Maker, which is wonderful and inexpensive. But then I got the Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker. You can also use the KitchenAid Ice Cream Maker Attachment, if you have one.

Some of you might even have the old-fashioned kind of ice cream maker that uses ice and rock salt. Even better if it’s one made of wood! Whichever you prefer is fine, but I can't imagine summer without an ice cream maker!

Simple Fudge Ripple Ice Cream


(Makes about 5 cups)

The Ice Cream

1 cup (8 fluid ounces/237 ml) milk (I used 2%)
2/3 cup (4.67 ounces/132 grams) sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Pinch salt

2 cups (16 fluid ounces/473 ml) heavy whipping cream

The Fudge Sauce

1/2 cup (3.5 ounces/99 grams) sugar
1/4 packed cup (0.75 ounces/21 grams) unsweetened natural cocoa* powder
Pinch salt
1/3 cup (2.67 fluid ounces/79 ml) water
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons (1 ounce/28 grams) unsalted butter

* I always buy organic and Fair Trade Certified coffee, cocoa and chocolate products as well as organic dairy products.

1 In medium bowl (I use a 2-quart glass measure to make pouring into the machine easier), whisk together milk, sugar, vanilla and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight.

2 Meanwhile, at least 2 hours before making the ice cream, make the sauce. In medium saucepan, whisk together sugar, cocoa, salt and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil; continue cooking for 1 minute. Remove from heat, and stir in vanilla extract and butter until the butter is melted. Let cool at room temperature, then chill for about 30 minutes before using. If you chill it too long, you'll need to wait for it to warm up a bit because it needs to be thin enough to drizzle into "ripples." 

3 Follow directions for the Cuisinart ICE-21, Cuisinart ICE-100, KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment or other ice cream maker.

Tip: If you're using the frozen canister type ice cream maker, be sure to freeze the canister for at least 24 hours. 

4 Transfer a third of the soft ice cream to a freezer-safe airtight container, drizzle on some of the sauce. Repeat twice (you'll have enough sauce left over to decorate the serving dishes). Place in freezer for at least 4 hours. If it is super hard when you're ready to use it, remove it from the freezer 15 minutes before serving.

Thank you, Maristella!

Sully, it is such an honor to get 5 cleavers!

Pauline Wiles said...

Jean, I feel like I'm in one of the few places in the northern hemisphere which is not crumpling under unbearable heat this month! Nonetheless, the ice cream looks absolutely delicious. What a great reminder to make some.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Pauline. It's kind of fun to make! May your comfortable weather continue!

kitty@ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen said...

It sounds like the perfect summertime treat, Jean! I could go for a bowl right now. Thank you for the recipe.

My Recipe Treasures said...

I do remember Fudge Ripple Ice Cream at grandma's house. It was so good on a hot summer day (like today). Your recipe looks fantastic. Thank you for sharing at To Grandma's House We Go.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, MRT. I hope you'll try it before summer's through and let me know how you liked it!

Jeanie said...

Be still, my heart. Alas, no ice cream maker but oh, I know who I'm sending this post to!

Bonnie said...

Oh my this looks like the perfect summer treat. There is nothing I love more than ice cream. Thanks!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Oh, Jeanie, it would be soooo much fun making this at the lake! :-)

Margie said...

This looks soooo good, Jean! I've never made my own ice cream (I know!) so I never realized that there's cooking involved in some recipes? I love hot fudge so much that I'd probably pour more over the ice cream.

Phil in the Kitchen said...

That looks so very fine. I'm definitely in need of ices this summer (although it's raining and cooler today and I couldn't be more pleased) and I love the thought of adding fudge ripple. I only have a ridiculously cheap ice cream maker but I suppose I am a ridiculously cheap person so it's quite appropriate.

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

It looks and sounds delicious1 Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Margie! Yes, if you look under Desserts on my Recipes index page, you'll find lots of the ice cream recipes I've developed, and some are the cooked custard base type and some are the simple uncooked type like this one. I hope you'll try it!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Phil, ridiculously cheap ice cream makers can get the job done! :D I hope you'll try this and let me know how it turned out. I'm so jealous of your weather!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Cathy, thank you. And it's lots of fun to make!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Bonnie, thank you so much. Ice cream really is the perfect dessert in this weather!

Karen said...

Hi Jean
Your ice cream looks so delicious! I must confess I've never made ice cream. Does it really taste better than store bought? My fav is French Vanilla and it does cool me down on a hot day. Thank you for sharing your yummy recipe.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Denise. Let me know how you like it.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Karen, thank you. Yes, I think it tastes better. But more important, I have complete control of the ingredients. I use all organic ingredients and no weird additives to "improve" it.

bill burke said...

Richard Sheppard said...

You're killing me Jean! It's 107° outside right now and this looks SO DANG GOOD! I'm going to have to put the freezer insert back into the freezer once agin.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Richard. This heat is totally wrecking me! And I can't make another batch of ice cream till I can muster up the energy to go to the store to buy more cream!

"Cuisinart ICE-21 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream-Sorbet Maker, or, Cuisinart ICE-100 Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream-Sorbet Maker,"
Blimey, Jean they have really catchy names!! Ha! Ha! Tongue twisters come to mind. Try and say that little lot, quickly, after a couple of glasses of wine.

We had our heatwave broken by some loud thunder , flashes of lightening and some heavy rain yesterday. We have had four months of temperatures touching 30 degrees most days and even getting to 35 degrees. Some of my favourite shrubs in our garden look as though they have died. The grass on our back lawn is yellow! Come on the rain!!!!!! The weather has stabilised at abut 20 degrees, the temperature we usually get here in the Summer. I hope this doesn't happen every year.
I hope you get rain soon too! Following the news you lot really need rain!!
YOUR ICE CREAM SOUNDS AND LOOKS WONDERFUL.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, Tony. AND for the weather report--that is some crazy weather in your part of the world! I hope the heatwave is indeed broken and that your garden has no permanent damage.

Cocoa and Lavender said...

What a perfect summer treat! And the fudge sauce by itself is a wonderful recipe to have!

April J Harris said...

I love fudge ripple ice cream, and this recipe sounds amazing! I really like homemade ice creams as the ingredients are much healthier and it always tastes best. You are tempting me to buy an ice cream machine again, Jean! Thank you so much for bringing this recipe to Hearth and Soul. Sharing, including on the H&S FB page. ! Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you so much, April! You definitely need to buy an ice cream maker again--especially if this weather is going to keep up!

Kinga K. said...

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Pam, thank you. I remember we got a wooden (but electric, not hand-cranked) ice cream maker as a wedding gift years ago. It was a lot of fun!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Ellen. I need to make another batch before the weekend. The heat continues!

Kitchen Riffs said...

Fudge ripple! I haven't had fudge ripple ice cream in decades! Totally forgot it existed. How could I when I used to love it so? Great (and fun!) recipe -- thanks.

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thank you, John. Yes, it IS fun!

Daydreams of a Mum said...

I must confess I own an ice cream maker , but it has never been out of the box...eeek!!! Tempted to get it out for this though it looks yum #blogcrush

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Mum! And *please* get it out of the box--you're going to have such fun with it!

Cranberry Morning said...

Jean, that looks incredible! I do have the rock salt type of ice cream maker and gained ten pounds one summer trying all sorts of gelato recipes. Lol The extra ten pounds is gone now, but the memory of that delicious gelato remains. Maybe I'll throw caution to the wind and try this!

Jean | DelightfulRepast.com said...

Thanks, Judy! Yes, let's just make a small batch once in a while and not pick up any extra pounds! :D
