Philadelphia-Style Chocolate Ice Cream

Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe

When I was little I lived in Philadelphia, just steps from an ice cream parlor. At the time I didn’t know what Philadelphia-Style ice cream was, nor would I have cared. All I knew was that the ice cream was cold, creamy and delicious.

Fast-forward 40 years and I am brought back to this memory by a desire for chocolate ice cream. I’d usually make my favorite “French” custard base, which results in a rich, creamy, luscious ice cream, but I wanted it fast and without fuss. The French-style requires making an egg custard and then adding flavors. But, this is by no means the only way to make fantastic ice creams. The eggless version is often referred to as Philadelphia-style, which is just cream, sugar and lots of flavor. The texture is a bit lighter but no less delicious, and it is so simple and fast to put together.

Philadelphia-Style Chocolate Ice Cream
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1/4 cup cocoa powder (Dutch-process or natural)
3/4 cup sugar
Pinch salt
1 teaspoon orange zest (optional)
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla

To make the ice cream:

In a non-reactive sauce pot, whisk together the cream, cocoa, sugar, and salt.

Mix until smooth and heat over medium heat until just simmering.

Add the chopped chocolate and whisk gently until completely smooth. Remove from heat.

Add the milk and whisk to combine.

Pour the chocolate mixture into a bowl (strain if you added the zest), cover with plastic and refrigerate until completely chilled, about 3 hours or overnight.

When the mixture is chilled it will be much thicker.

Freeze according to your ice cream maker’s instructions.
