Key Ingredients You’ll Need
Heavy Cream: This is a great thickening agent and when used at room temperature it will give you a creamier consistency.
Sweetened Condensed Milk: This ingredient is all about getting that smooth and almost creamy texture that you love when it comes to ice cream.
Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is used not only to add an aroma to the recipe but also to enhance the flavor as well for a sweeter and more delicious recipe.
Cocoa Powder: To get that chocolatey flavor you will be using cocoa powder because it blends easily into the batter and has a strong flavor.
Almonds: I love adding almonds for a crunchy flavor! You can use other nuts of your choice.
Mini Marshmallows: Adding mini marshmallows will add tiny spongey bits into the ice cream that add a nice and soft texture.
Mini Chocolate Chips: Mini Chocolate Chips will add more texture and more chocolate flavor.
Ice Cream Cones: I love putting my ice cream into a bowl or to serve in a cone.
How To Make Rocky Road Ice Cream
Step 1. Chill your loaf pan in the freezer while you prepare your ice cream. Add the heavy cream into a large mixing bowl and beat until stiff with peaks.
