Homemade Ice Cream Chocolate Truffles, a creamy Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream covered in either dark or milk chocolate shell, and why not add a little chocolate fudge or caramel sauce. These decadent bites will be an amazing Summer Dessert.
It’s a holiday weekend in Canada and the United States this weekend. And what better way to celebrate then with Chocolate and Ice Cream.
You might be thinking that these are waaay too complicated to make. But believe me not true at all. I took a look at how a few other recipes were made, and I thought, nope not going to work in my hot-house.
The idea was to form balls out of the ice cream and then freeze them and then dip them in chocolate. I’m sure it works but I wasn’t taking any chances.
So I remembered making Homemade Chocolates at Christmas time and it was so easy. I thought why not try with Ice Cream? And to make it even easier use my No-Churn Vanilla Ice Cream. And that is exactly what I did.
These Ice Cream Chocolate Truffles are simple and fast to put together, all you have to do is freeze them in between the steps. Another tip, make sure you use a silicone chocolate mold, for easy removal, they just pop out.
Start by melting your chocolate, line the chocolate mold with a layer of chocolate (not too thin or too thick), freeze for about 15 minutes. To make them even more decadent (because why not?), add a little fudge sauce or caramel sauce at the bottom of the frozen mold.
Homemade Ice Cream Chocolate Truffles
Make your No-Churn Ice Cream of choice, add it to the molds, remember to fill just below the border, freeze again for about an hour and then cover with melted chocolate. Freeze again for about 5 hours or even over night.
And if you really want to get creative drizzle The Homemade Ice Cream Chocolate Truffles with some melted chocolate or top with some chopped nuts. They are the perfect individual size, so you can keep them in the freezer and grab one or two for a quick Ice Cream Chocolate Fix. Enjoy! And a Happy Holiday Weekend Everyone.

In a small bowl whisk together sweetened condensed milk and vanilla, set aside.
