“This one is beyond easy,” Meaghan said, “and while I *do* like the taste of churned ice cream better, because I think it’s creamier and less cloyingly sweet, no-churn recipes are great if you don’t have an ice cream maker.”

If dark chocolate chunks and caramel aren’t the perfect combo for you, Meaghan has some other awesome frozen treat ideas for you on her website. You should definitely check out her fantastic recipes for Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, Red Wine Ice Cream and Italian Lemon Ice.

Tips for making No Churn Ice Cream

1. Beat the whipping cream.

In a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment or with a hand mixer beat the heavy whipping cream on a high speed until it reaches stiff peaks. This should take you about 5-7 minutes. Meaghan warns that the less firm your whipping cream is at this stage, the softer your ice cream will be.

2. Fold in sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.

Once you reach stiff peaks, add sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Then gently fold it in using the lowest setting on your mixer. Use a spatula to finish incorporating the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla. Be sure you continue to use the folding method so you don’t knock all the air out of the ice cream mixture.

3. Layer the ice cream in a loaf pan.

First, pour half of your ice cream mixture into a loaf pan or tin. Then drizzle it with half of the caramel sauce. Use a skewer or knife to carefully swirl the caramel sauce a little through the ice cream mixture. After that’s done, sprinkle half of the dark chocolate chunks on top of the ice cream. Next repeat the layers using the rest of the ice cream, caramel sauce, and chocolate chunks.

4. Freeze the Chocolate Chunk Caramel No Churn Ice Cream overnight.

Cover the loaf pan tightly with plastic wrap. Then put the Chocolate Chunk Caramel No Churn Ice Cream in your freezer overnight. I know, I know… waiting a whole day before enjoying this delicious no churn ice cream is practically torture.

5. Serve and enjoy!

Once the Chocolate Chunk Caramel No Churn Ice Cream has hardened overnight, use an ice cream scoop to serve it with your favorite cones and toppings! You may need to let the ice cream soften slightly on the counter in order to get the ice cream scoop into it. Alternately, you could also run the ice cream scoop under hot water before serving the Chocolate Chunk Caramel No Churn Ice Cream.
