If your ice cream is icy, then it is possible that the ice cream has frozen for too long. Be sure to enjoy the ice cream once it is frozen!
The texture of no-churn ice cream is velvetlike and creamy. Super soft to scoop into, this type of ice cream is known for its creaminess.
Once the ice cream is completely solid, then it is ready to be eaten.

- 2 cups heavy whipping cream (cold) (256 grams)
- 1 14 ounces can of sweetened condensed milk (396.9 grams)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract (8.4 grams)
- 3 cups chopped chocolate bars (I like to do a variety of sizes, some very small, some larger) (Butterfinger, Reese’s, Twix, Heath bars & Snickers are my favorites!) (384 grams)
- ½ cup caramel sauce (170 grams)
Pour your heavy whipping cream into a large bowl or stand mixer. Begin to mix on low then slowly increase speed. Mix for ~3 minutes until stiff peaks form and you’ve made whipped cream!
In a separate large bowl combine sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract.
Gently fold in your whipped cream to the sweetened condensed milk mixture. Do not stir this vigorously! You don’t want to reduce the air in the whipped cream. Mix this for ~2-3 minutes until totally uniform and no lumps of whipped cream are present.
Now, fold in 2.5 cups of your chopped candy (reserve a few of the larger pieces of each type of candy especially- this will show what’s IN your ice cream!)
Pour 1/3 of your ice cream into a ~6+ cup container (you can also use a loaf pan!). Now, add a few dollops of your caramel sauce (⅓ of it!) and then use a knife to swirl it in. Repeat this process: ⅓ of the ice cream, ⅓ of the caramel sauce, swirl, repeat! You’ll end with the caramel sauce. Then you’ll add the remaining ½ cup of your chopped chocolate on top
Freeze for 8 hours.
Once frozen, remove from the freezer and enjoy!
Any candy will work but my favorite are Butterfingers, Twix, Reese's and Heath bars!
