For The Ice Cream:

For The Cookie Dough:


  • Start by making your vanilla ice cream – Whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar until they are nice and fluffy. Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan and add the vanilla essence. Add the egg mixture to the saucepan and cook on a high heat for 5 minutes stirring regularly. Place the saucepan in the fridge and allow to cool.
  • While your saucepan ingredients cools make your cookie dough – Beat together your butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla essence and milk and mix well. Break up the milk chocolate into different sizes and add 80% of it to the dough. Knead the dough for a couple of minutes and fridge.
  • When it is nice and cool add the ice cream to the ice cream maker. Place the cookie dough into the ice cream maker at the rate of tablespoons of dough at a time and let the ice cream maker do the work and mix it all around.
  • Leave the ice cream maker mixing up the ice cream and allowing it to work its magic for about 45 minutes.
  • Place the rest of the chocolate chips in the ice cream as this will give a lovely chocolate affect once served.
  • Transfer to the freezer and serve when you are ready.


I also like to alter this for white chocolate chips or for dark chocolate, so I advise that you go with whatever your favourite chocolate is.
When you create your chocolate chips the easiest way is to place the chocolate in a sandwich bag in the freezer for 10 minutes and then bash the half frozen chocolate bag with a rolling pin for 4-5 minutes.
