Hey there, hungry people!

Today, I have a super easy and utterly delicious ice cream recipe for you: Turtle Chunk | Two Ingredient Ice Cream. Trust me, you won’t be able to resist this heavenly treat!

I like turtles.

But let me tell you, turtle ice cream takes the concept of turtles to a whole new level of deliciousness. Now, before you start getting any ideas, no, I’m not talking about combining actual turtles with ice cream. That would be quite strange, wouldn’t it? Instead, I’m talking about a flavor that will make your taste buds dance with joy!

To make this Turtle Chunk ice cream, all you need are two simple ingredients: a can of sweetened condensed milk and two cups of heavy whipping cream. That’s it! No fancy equipment or complicated techniques required.

Here’s What You Need

  • Heavy whipping cream: Provides a creamy and rich base for the ice cream.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: Adds sweetness and richness to the ice cream base.
  • Chocolate chunks: Introduces bursts of chocolatey goodness throughout the ice cream.
  • Caramel bits: Adds a gooey and indulgent caramel flavor to the ice cream.
  • Walnuts, chopped: Provides a delightful crunch and nutty flavor to complement the other ingredients.

Let’s Get Started

Now, let’s get down to business.

Begin by taking your can of sweetened condensed milk and pouring it into a mixing bowl. Next, add in the two cups of heavy whipping cream. It’s time to put your muscles to work!

Grab your trusty whisk or electric mixer and beat the cream until it becomes light and fluffy. This step will incorporate air into the mixture, resulting in a creamy and smooth texture. It’s like creating a cloud of deliciousness!

Once you’ve achieved that lovely light and fluffy consistency, it’s time to gently stir in the sweetened condensed milk. This luscious ingredient will bring sweetness and richness to the ice cream base. Take your time and make sure everything is well combined.

Now, here comes the fun part! Whip the mixture a little more until it becomes smooth and velvety. We want to ensure that there are no lumps or unevenness in our ice cream. So keep whipping until you achieve that perfect, irresistible texture.

Once you’ve added your desired toppings, it’s time to let the magic happen. Transfer the mixture into a freezer-safe container, cover it, and pop it into the freezer. Leave it to freeze for about 6-8 hours, or until it reaches the perfect ice cream consistency.

Finally, the moment you’ve been waiting for! Take out your frozen Turtle Chunk ice cream, scoop it into a cone or bowl, and get ready to indulge in pure frozen bliss. Let the creamy goodness melt in your mouth, savoring each and every bite.

Helpful Tips & Tricks

  • Whip the cream to the right consistency: When beating the heavy whipping cream, make sure to whip it until it reaches a light and fluffy consistency. This will ensure a smooth and creamy ice cream texture.
  • Incorporate the condensed milk evenly: When mixing in the sweetened condensed milk, be sure to incorporate it thoroughly into the whipped cream. This will ensure a balanced sweetness throughout the ice cream.
  • Fold in the toppings gently: When adding the chocolate chunks, caramel bits, and chopped walnuts, gently fold them into the ice cream base. This will distribute the toppings evenly without deflating the air whipped into the cream.
  • Use a sealable container for freezing: Transfer the ice cream mixture into a sealable container to prevent ice crystals from forming and to maintain the desired texture.
  • Allow sufficient freezing time: Freeze the ice cream for at least 6-8 hours, or until it is solid. This will ensure a firm consistency and allow the flavors to develop fully.
  • Experiment with additional toppings: Feel free to get creative and add more toppings of your choice, such as extra chocolate drizzle, whipped cream, or even crushed cookies. Customize it to your liking!
  • Let the ice cream soften before serving: If the ice cream is too hard straight from the freezer, let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes to soften slightly for easier scooping.
