Rolo No Churn Ice Cream

*Please note* this post was originally published in 2018. I’ve updated the text but the recipe remains the same.

Summer is officially here! If you know me at all, you know that I LOVE summer. For a born and raised Canadian, I really, really despise winter. Summer is where most of my happiest memories have been made. I don’t have to wear socks, I can go for a nice walk at 9pm at night with no jacket on, I can EAT OUTSIDE….oh man. The list goes on and on.

Although I feel like I’m spending the majority of my summer in a sleep-deprived haze, I’m doing my best to enjoy it. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather be sleep-deprived in the summer while the sun is shining and I can play outside, rather than being holed up inside staring at the snow!

Part of my enjoying summer means enjoying all of the yummy treats that go along with it. While that definitely includes fresh berries and stone fruits (yay), it also means ICE CREAM! I so love ice cream. Since discovering the no churn method of making ice cream, I almost always have a pint in the freezer. It is SO easy, and you can really get creative with different flavors and fillings.

Today’s ice cream recipe is my contribution to the summer blog hop hosted by my friend Kendra over at Joy in Our Home. You might even be popping by after your last stop over at Live, Laugh, Rowe (that ice cream pie!?!?). You can see all of the other fun summer posts at the bottom of the recipe!

Now – this ice cream. One of my favorite ice cream flavors has always been Rolo. It’s got so much of what I love: smooth chocolate and ribbons of caramel, with chunks of Rolo scattered throughout!

How do you make no-churn Rolo ice cream?

Since starting to make my own ice cream, it didn’t take me long to attempt my own version of Rolo. The nice thing about making your own is that you are in total control of the amount of caramel and Rolo pieces in it!! No more digging for gold in the ice cream container, leading to a fight with your significant other about your “mining”. Or is that just Etienne and I….?!

As always, this ice cream comes together in a snap. The one extra step would be making the caramel sauce, but you could always use store-bought (I won’t tell). I just used my trusty salted caramel sauce recipe!

Add the cocoa powder to the whipping cream halfway through the whipping process (once it starts to get a bit thicker). The rest is the same as any of my other no churn recipes. Fold in the condensed milk, followed by the Rolo pieces, and then layer it all with caramel sauce.

Can you exchange the Rolo for a different candy?

Yes! You can use the same exact base for this ice cream and just swap in some chopped up Snickers, Caramilk bars or your favorite candy bar. It’s great with any candy!

After making and eating this ice cream, be sure to check out another amazing no churn recipe by my friend Stacey at The Sugar Coated Cottage.

Two scoops for me, please!

Add the cocoa powder and begin running the mixer on low until the powder is incorporated, then run on high for another 2-3 minutes or until the mixture is thick like whipped cream.
  2. Remove the bowl from the mixer, and fold in the condensed milk using a spatula or large wooden spoon. Fold in the Rolo pieces.
  3. Layer the ice cream with caramel sauce into a standard sized loaf pan or other freezer-safe container. Freeze for 5-6 hours or until firm.
