Chocolate Snow Ice Cream

Easy 3 ingredient chocolate snow ice cream recipe!

For the first 20 years of my life, I was all about vanilla. I’m not sure what flipped the switch, but I’m a chocolate lover through and through. I’m an avid hot cocoa drinker, especially on days like today where it’s 10 below. But, no matter the weather, I can always enjoy ice cream. Growing up, snow ice cream was a treat after a long day of sledding. I still enjoy it today! I love how light and fluffy it is. It feels a little less guilty and brings out the child in me.

When getting ready to make hot cocoa this morning, I had an idea. What if I made a chocolate or hot cocoa ice cream. Thank heavens I did, because now I can’t imagine eating vanilla again. A frozen hot chocolate, chocolate snow ice cream, whatever you want to call it, it’s nothing short of amazing.

It’s chocolate. Of course it’s great plain, but the girls like their hot cocoa traditional – with marshmallows!


While I prefer my ice cream like I enjoy my hot cocoa – salted caramel hot chocolate, in ice cream form. I just added a little salted caramel sauce.

    I was looking around for an easy, fun, and tasty recipe for snow ice-cream to make with my preschool students. I came upon yours. When I told my students we were going to make Hot Chocolate snow ice-cream you should of heard the excitement. The older preschoolers started to question how we were going to put hot chocolate on snow and not get runny snow, lol. We doubled the ingredients. So we could all have some. They took turns pouring in a little milk and other items at a time. Your recipe wasn’t only simple, but it very yummy as well. The kiddos
    Loved it and we didn’t get chocolate runny snow:) you get an At.
