Chocolate Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

I've spent a lot of time in the kitchen this weekend, mainly because I know I won't have time once the week starts. I've been on an ice cream making kick since summer, and I made 2 flavors this week. First: chocolate cinnamon chocolate chip

1 can fat free sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 shots Torani sugar free chocolate syrup (I buy this at World Market)
2 cups half & half (you can also use heavy cream if you want creamier ice cream)
1/2 cup Hershey's mini chocolate chips

Mix first 5 ingredients until incorporated. Add half & half. Put batter in ice cream maker for 18 minutes. Add chocolate chips and blend for 2 more minutes. Freeze for 4-6 hours or until it reaches desired consistency. If you don't have a ice cream maker, just freeze it for 8-10 hours. The chocolate chips might sink, so you may want to reserve them to sprinkle on top. This is my favorite ice cream I've made so far!


  1. this ice cream looks so delicious!!! Do you have any coffee flavored ice creams that you make? How are there no eggs in this ice cream? I don't know anything about ice cream making but i remember someone making it once and it tasting eggy. I dont have an ice cream can i just blend them all up with a kitchen aid mixer, or more like.... a blender? Do ya know?! I really want to try some of your recipes! YUM!

  2. I haven't made any coffee flavored ice creams yet, but I'll post it when I do! I did make ice cream with egg once, and I know what you mean - it was eggy. I'm not a huge fan of serving raw eggs, so when I found this base recipe for sweetened condensed milk and heavy cream, I tried it out (with lighter alternatives) and it was great! I can't tell any difference between this and regular ice cream as far as flavor.

    I made this one once before without my ice cream maker - I just used a hand mixer you blend and then froze it for 8 hours. I never thought of using a blender; that's a good idea!
