[ice cream week] no churn mississippi mud ice cream + a giveaway

what says summer better than ice cream? unfortunately, ice cream can be tricky and time consuming to make. the thought of whipping some up pretty much never crossed my mind.

i discovered no churn ice cream thanks to beth a few weeks ago, and i gotta say, there is no better way to make some ice cream quickly. it's rich, creamy, tastes amazing and is the easiest thing ever! you can customize it any way you want, from simple vanilla, to fruit, to richer flavors like chocolate, peanut butter or caramel. it's a total blank slate. keep the base - whipped cream and sweetened condensed milk - the same, and add any flavor combination you please.

i've got some great memories of having mississippi mud cake at mary ann's in fairhope, sans pecans. it's a super rich, moist chocolate cake with marshmallows galore, and i knew it would transfer to ice cream seamlessly. needless to say, my friends and roommate devoured this stuff.


no churn mississippi mud ice cream

1 14 ounce can condensed sweetened milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3 tablespoons hershey's special dark cocoa
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)

in a large bowl, beat heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. fold in condensed sweetened milk, cocoa, marshmallows and chopped pecans. once combined, put into freezer safe container. top with additional marshmallows and pecans. freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
