Double Chocolate Ice Cream

A combo of cocoa powder and melted chocolate makes for a rich, ultra-chocolaty dessert. We updated the recipe to use heavy cream in place of the half-and-half in the original. Note: If you’re using a 1 1/2-quart tabletop ice-cream maker, it’ll be pretty full.

Salted Caramel Ice Cream

It's hard to beat the sweet-salty goodness of this indulgent yet light caramel ice cream. Light ice cream has evolved from its watery ice-milk days and in the Test Kitchen, we like to get creative with ingredients and flavors, but we hold fast to settling for nothing less than smooth, creamy, rich results.

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream

Homemade chocolate ice cream and fudgy brownie bites are perfect companions in this recipe combo. Place the ice-cream freezer can and your freezer-safe dish for ripening the ice cream in the freezer while you make the custard. This helps the ice cream ripen quickly. We awarded this rich-tasting treat our Test Kitchens' highest rating.

Banana-Coconut Ice Cream

The added creaminess of two percent milk (as opposed to fat-free or one percent) makes richer ice cream with fewer ice crystals. Cream of coconut is a sweet, thick mixture that's used to make piña coladas; look for it in cans near the drink mixes.

Mascarpone's silky thickness lends a custardlike texture without the trouble of cooking custard. Except for dissolving sugar in mango nectar, this is a no-cook recipe. Press the puree through a fine sieve for a smooth texture.
