Full Metal Chocolate Chili Ice Cream

I bought an ice cream maker a couple months ago, and since then I've been looking for new and interesting ice cream recipes. I ran across several recipes for chocolate chili ice cream, which sounded kind of strange but promising. I devised my own simple recipe based on proportions I found in other recipes, mixed it up and froze it right before I came here to write this--and it's delicious.


- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 cups whole milk
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (baking cocoa)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons chili powder


Very simple: put all the ingredients in the ice cream mixer, whisk them together thoroughly and freeze according manufacturer's directions.

Yield: About 1 Quart

I know it sounds like a lot of chili powder, but trust me on this one.

  1. Eating this in the evening may keep you up at night. You might try cutting the amount of chili powder in half if you have trouble with heartburn.
