Orange Chocolate Curl Ice Cream

orangechoccurlicecream
This Dove silky smooth milk chocolate candy bar is the basis
for the chocolate curls in the ice cream.
This pile of chocolate curls is ready to go into the ice cream base.
Use a rubber spatula to incorporate the extract and chocolate curls
into the sweetened condensed milk.
The ice cream mixture becomes very fluffy as soon as
the luscious whipped cream is added.

One of my favorite quick frozen treats to make is no church ice cream. I love experimenting with different add-ins and extracts. This time, I used a vegetable peeler to make chocolate curls from a large Dove silky smooth milk chocolate candy bar. Inspired by the chocolate orange balls I see during the holiday season, I added pure orange extract to compliment the milk chocolate curls.

There are really a couple of ways to prepare no churn ice cream. If you prefer it thick and dense, then stir it just once in between the freezing time. If you prefer it to have a lighter texture, then stir it every hour until it is frozen well.

  • 1 12 oz. can sweeetened condensed milk
  • 1 teaspoon pure orange extract
  • 1 3.3oz. Dove milk chocolate bar, shaved & frozen
Instructions
  1. To shave the chocolate, carefully use a vegetable peeler. Freeze until ready to use.
  2. Whip the heavy cream in a chilled bowl with a chilled beater until stiff peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the sweetened condensed milk and peppermint extract. Stir in the shaved chocolate. Fold in the whipped cream until well combined.
  4. Pour into a 2 quart container. Freeze for 2 hours. Remove from freezer and stir. Return to freezer and freeze overnight before serving.

Notes
Make sure you freeze the chocolate curls before adding them to the sweetened condensed milk. This will prevent them from breaking up or melting into the ice cream.
