This recipe calls for stirring in chocolate-covered toffee but you can chop and stir in any favorite candy. Cook time includes freeze time. I have included instructions to make chocolate dipped cones which are so good! I leave the cones right side up so I get a good amount of chocolate in the tip of the cone for a delightful surprise at the end. I let them stand for at least 20 minutes. Then I dipped them around the sides
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 cups whipping cream
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup chocolate-covered english toffee bar
Directions See How It's Made
- In large bowl, combine sugar and cocoa powder. Add whipping cream, milk, vanilla, and salt; stir until sugar is dissolved.
- Pour cream mixture into freezer canister of 1 or 1 1/2 quart ice cream freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Stir in toffee pieces. If desired, ripen ice cream about 4 hours.
- Chocolate-Dipped Cones.
- For a fun way to dress up ice cream cones with chocolate, place 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips (or 3 ounces chopped semisweet chocolate) in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on 70 percent power (medium-high) for 1 minute; stir. Microwave for 1 1/2 to 3 minutes more or until the chocolate is melted and smooth, stirring every 15 seconds. Spoon chocolate over the tops of ice cream cones to cover about 1/3 of each cone. (If the chocolate is too thick, stir in 1 teaspoon of melted shortening.) Place cones, top sides down, on baking sheet lined with waxed paper. Chill the cones about 15 minutes or until set.
