  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups heavy cream very cold
  • 1 12-ounce jar hot fudge sauce or one cup of homemade hot fudge sauce, cooled


  • In a large bowl whisk together the sweetened condensed milk, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, and salt.
  • In a second bowl (preferably a chilled glass bowl) whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form (a hand mixer on medium-high speed will speed this up but it can be done by hand!).
  • Gently fold heavy cream into the chocolate mixture.
  • Pour half of the ice cream into a bread loaf pan.
  • Drop half of the hot fudge sauce by spoonfuls onto the ice cream, gently swirl in with a knife a few times.
  • Repeat with remaining ice cream and hot fudge sauce.
  • Cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 8 hours or overnight. Scoop and serve!


Whipping the cream: the colder your cream and bowl, the faster it will whip up! Put a glass bowl in the freezer for 5-10 minutes before starting and wait to take the heavy cream from the fridge until the last minute. Use a hand mixer on medium-high speed to really speed things up! 
Rocky road: stir in 1 cup marshmallows and 1/2 cup peanuts or chopped almonds.
Salted caramel swirl: swap out the hot fudge sauce for caramel sauce + 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt!
Other add-ins: chocolate chips, sprinkles, nuts, marshmallow cream, crushed graham crackers.
