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!

    I’ve never had rolo ice cream and I’m wondering where it’s been all my life! Especially because I have two (yes TWO) bags of rolos in my pantry that I bought for a recipe, then quickly forgot what exactly that recipe was. Clearly I was just waiting for you to come up with a recipe for me :). Happy summer!

  4. I love Rolo’s!! One of my favorite candies growing up 🙂 Those little gold wrappers….hehehe. This ice cream looks so chocolatey and delicious. I love no churn ice cream and how easy it is to make. Especially because it does not last long in our house! PINNED!

  5. I need this in my life!!!

    I think you’ve convinced me to try making ice cream, Katherine! This rolo one looks amazing and I love that you can add whatever you want (and that it doesn’t have a gazillion unpronounceable ingredients!) I had to laugh at the digging for gold … yes, that’s definitely me! Always wonderful having you on these blog good, friend!

  7. Love it ! Good to see you !

  8. This sounds too good to be true. The texture looks perfect. Ice cream is my kryptonite. I can’t wait to try it!

  9. I love Rolos, and this ice cream looks perfectly divine!

  10. ahh this ice cream sounds so good! and i love that the rolos have that whole center of caramel. anything with a caramel swirl just seems to lose the caramel so this way you can’t miss it (:

    Katherine, you are speaking my language girl – this looks amazing. I can’t believe it’s “no churn” either. I have a feeling my family is going to love you for sharing this recipe. I’m so excited to try it too! Hugs, CoCo

  19. What an awesome flavor Katherine! Tom and I are both fans of rolos, so this needs to happen soon here! Happy summer!

  20. Oh this looks amazing! I have never made ice cream before but this looks very easy. Thank you for sharing!

  21. I’d be in a sleep deprived haze too! I’m impressed that you’re making your own ice cream because I’d probably only have enough energy to run out and buy a pint. 🙂 This ice cream looks incredible — chocolate and caramel were meant to be together!

  24. Oh.My.Word! Our fave combo is chocolate and caramel. we had NO idea that we could make ice cream this easily. Can’t wait to give this a try. But if we start gaining weight…..HAHAHA.

  25. This ice cream looks super creamy Katherine! Definitely a nice treat to indulge in during summer! I’m glad you are making the best of your sleep deprived state and enjoying your summer! It goes by so fast in Canada! Happy weekend!

  27. This ice cream is calling my name, Katherine! And SO easy!! So glad that summer is treating you well…now if you could just get a nice long nap. 😉

  28. 😅oooo I love no churn ice cream and adding rolo to it sounds amazing. This ice cream really looks absolutely divine and I cannot wait to try it as well. Just one thing though…in my home, this icecream will NEVER keep in the freezer for 1 to 2 weeks, more like 1 to 2 days 😅
    Have a great week Katherine 🙂

  29. Well this is delectable!! I love Rolos! I don’t know the last time I had them, but now I want them in my ice cream! Brava!

  30. One of the best things about summer is the extended daylight hours. Winter would be so much more bearable if we didn’t have to spend the majority of it in darkness.This ice cream looks luscious, Katherine!! It would not last long at my house! In fact, I would have to hide it from my husband, otherwise he would eat the whole thing in no time!

  31. Oh MY GOSH! Chocolate and caramel. So dang YUM! Thanks for this recipe, it’s what I need right now! I love summer, too, Katherine, for all the same reasons you do. I completely agree that winter can just GO! And ice cream is how I celebrate it, too! Thanks for this, my mouth is watering…

  32. Why have I never added Rolos to ice cream???! Big mistake until this nudge from you! Fabulous summer treat!!

  33. Oh my that looks so yummy!. Out of all of the flavors of ice cream I will always pick chocolate. And if it has caramel then it’s even better!. I’ve never attempted to make Ice Cream though, I just feel I’ll do something wrong!
