  • 2 king size chocolate candy bars, broken into bits optional
  • 6 crushed Oreos optional
  • 6 ounces chocolate chips optional
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts optional


  • With a mixer, beat heavy whipping cream until thick. Fold a cup of it into a bowl with the sweetened condensed milk, add chocolate syrup and optional vanilla and mix until smooth.
  • Pour sweetened condensed milk/whipping cream mixture back into the bowl with the heavy whipping cream and fold together until smooth and creamy.
  • Next, pour half of the ice cream into a freezer safe container. Add half of the mix-in of your choice (if any), and use a spoon or a knife to swirl the mix-in together with the ice cream (optional).
  • Top with remaining ice cream, and then top that with the remaining mix-in.
  • Freeze for 5-6 hours or overnight. When it is time to serve, remove from freezer and let sit on the counter to soften for 5-10 minutes prior to serving.
