Chocolate Porter & Hazelnut Ice Cream
Chocolate and hazelnut are a natural flavor combination, but you may be wondering about the porter. What’s a beer doing in an ice cream, you ask? Well one, why not? But two, the porter gives a nice depth of flavor to the rich chocolate. It adds another dimension – a bit of bitter, a bit of richness. It just wouldn’t be the same flavor without it.
Homemade no churn ice cream is so easy to make – with just 6 ingredients, you can pick up everything you need at the store today, and the only tools you need are a mixer and a loaf pan.
Anyway, I’m keeping this one short today. Dive in below and make some chocolate porter & hazelnut ice cream with the time you’ve saved. You can thank me later.
Chocolate Porter & Hazelnut No Churn Ice Cream
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- ½ cup cocoa powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons sweet porter (I used Breckenridge Brewery Vanilla Porter)
- 1/3 cup chopped chocolate hazelnut bar
- Line a loaf pan with a sheet of parchment paper, so that an inch or so hangs over the edges.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer, whip the heavy cream until hard peaks form.
- Beat in the condensed milk and cocoa powder, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Whisk in the salt.
- Fold in the porter and half of the chopped chocolate with a rubber spatula. Transfer the ice cream mixture into the prepared loaf pan, sprinkling the remaining chocolate pieces on top.
- Freeze for 6-8 hours before serving. The ice cream will be semi-soft, but wholly delicious.
