Did you hear me?
I said, CHOCOLATE.
This dessert is all about the chocolate. Its a super incredible chocolate ice cream base, laced with the most amazing, chewy, chocolatey, chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough, slated condensed milk caramel and fluff. Then, because no matter what yo mamma told you, too much of a good thing is really never enough, all that chocolate goodness gets sandwich between to perfect layers of buttery chocolate brownies.
I’m assuming that by now you have stopped reading because you just couldn’t take another second of the torture that is not eating this. So, you skipped all this reading and scrolled down to the recipe. If thats the case, good. If not I’m guessing that means you don’t like chocolate (because if you do, you would not need any more convincing). So to all the super boring cool vanilla lovers out there (ahem, eli), don’t worry I got you covered.
The whole concept of this ice cream, mixing in sweetened condensed milk into whipped heavy cream, is so versatile and easy to use that it can be altered to fit all your dessert needs. It is NOT exclusive to chocolate ice cream. In fact, I have included so many variations to the base and topping of this ice cream in the recipe! Everything from a strawberry cookie dough to peaches n cream, to a pretzel and caramel are all represented.
O.k. lets dress the elephant in the room now. This recipe requires a few steps.
Like I said, a few steps. But, I am not sorry. Why? Make the dessert and you will find out.
Also, if you don’t need cholov Yisroel milk then it is very very easy to find kosher sweetened condensed milk and you can easily skip the first step. And truthfully, as fun as ice scream sandwiches are, I stand by this ice cream so proudly, that I would say, even if you serve the ice cream by itself, with na simple bowl and spoon, it will still be the best dessert you have ever made.
So, how ever you do it, in what ever form, or flavor I strongly urge you to include this in any dairy menus you have planned. And, if you choose to skip any real food in favor of just having a bowl of this ice cream as your meal, that too, will be completely understood (and maybe even admired!).
