Hi, my name is David Levine. I own Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at Today, we're making one of everybody's favorite treats, chocolate ice cream. How do you make chocolate ice cream, you might ask. Well, it's easy. You need the best level of ingredient you can find and an ice cream maker. Ice cream makers are relatively easy to find around the holidays and if you waited in one of the big buck stores, they usually have them on sale. So, here's how we begin. We start with heavy whipping cream. You need two cups of it. You pour it into a bowl and you follow that off with a cup of whole milk. So, now we add our chocolate syrup, a half cup. And you follow the chocolate syrup with two tablespoons of sugar. After all the ingredients have been put together, we mix it up in a mixing bowl. Once it's nice and mixed together, what the trick is now is you take the combined mixture and you put it in the freezer, before you even put it in the ice cream machine. Let it sit in the machine, in the freezer before going into the machine for a good 30-45 minutes, up to even an hour depending on how cold your freezer is. You don't want to let it actually freeze though in the freezer. Basically, what you're doing is you're chilling it to a point colder than it was in your refrigerator and because it warms up a little while it's on the counter you're working with it. That'll help the process of putting into the ice cream machine so that it forms up and freezes nice and evenly. It's been somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes and the mixture of the milk and the cream and the chocolate and the sugar has frozen up a little and really it's chilled off. And now, what we're going to do is we're going to pour it right into our ice cream machine. We're going to let the mixture stay in the machine for a good 20-25 minutes. Here is a tip. Do not take the bowl for the ice cream out of the freezer until right before you're ready to make your ice cream and pour it in. So, when you're taking out the mixture, you want to take the mixture and the bowl that goes into the machine together. So, after the ice cream has been churning on the ice cream machine for the last 25 minutes or so, voila, you have homemade chocolate ice cream. Thank you for watching today. And once again, my name is David Levine with Illinois Nut and Candy. We're online at, and have a sweet day.
