Because my ice cream maker came with two pint sized bowls, it is the perfect size to fit in my freezer at school. So of course, because we had two packs of oreos, I had to make some chocolate oreo ice cream immediately!
This ice cream tastes extremely light and satisfying. I’ve been using this recipe over and over again; I can’t get enough of it! I need to expand my horizons soon, although we still have almost a full pack of oreos left (double stuffed this time!). I’ve been quadrupling this recipe and using both of my bowls to make it so we have enough for a few days.
Chocolate Oreo Ice Cream
yields one 6-oz. serving
1/2 cup half-and-half or light cream (or 1/4 cup milk, 1/4 cup heavy cream)
2 T sugar
4 t cocoa powder
1/4 t vanilla
3 T crushed oreos (about 3 oreos)
Combine cocoa and sugar and stir to mix. Add a small amount of the half-and-half and mix. Add remaining half-and-half and vanilla; mix until smooth. Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s directions, adding in the oreos in the last five minutes of churning.
