A recipe for Chocolate Ice Cream from Jacican

Hot hot hot. It's been a hot summer here in southern Australia. No matter how warm it gets, we're still open for business (we have air conditioning!) and the Kids in the Kitchen cooking classes are nearly here.

I've created a new class that will be perfect for the summer school holidays - Ice Cream and Ice Cream Sundaes.

I'm going to share with you a recipe that the kids who are coming along will be making. It's Chocolate Ice Cream, and it has only four ingredients. You will need to use an ice cream machine to make it at home, but stay with me, and I'll show you how I'm doing it with the kids coming along to class.


Chocolate Ice Cream


  • 1 litre water
  • 300 grams caster sugar
  • 150 grams cocoa
  • 100 grams cream

    The four ingredients for chocolate ice cream


  1. Put the water in the saucepan. Add caster sugar and dissolve. Bring to the boil and boil for 3 minutes.
  2. Remove from the heat and allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. Add the cocoa. Stir through and allow the mixture to cool thoroughly.

  4. Stir in the cream.

    Stir in the cream until well combined

  5. Churn according to the instructions on the ice cream machine.

We're skipping step 5 here, and doing things a little differently.

After leaving the mixture in the fridge overnight, I put it in the mixmaster and started stirring.

Then, I added liquid nitrogen. Yep - liquid nitrogen.

 I'm yet to meet a kid who doesn't think that this step is the coolest thing EVER.

And after a couple of minutes of mixing, this is the result:

It maybe an idea not to try this at home, as you don't only need liquid nitrogen, a mix master with a metal bowl and k-beater, but also a flame thrower.

Ice cold chocolate ice cream. Yum.
