Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream #IceCreamSocial

Sue of Palatable Pastime invited us to join her for an ice cream social today. "Join in for a fun posting with frozen treats of any kind, such as ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato,sorbets, ices, affogatos, malts and shakes, ice cream cakes, ice cream pies, ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, popsicles, what have you," she wrote. 'Tis the season.

Here are the what the other cool gals are bringing to the #IceCreamSocial...

"Mom," R commented, "you have never made chocolate ice cream." True. I usually stick to the fruity flavors. So, we fixed that...and he declared it the best chocolate ice cream he'd ever had! As far as the name - Chocolate Mousse - R said that it was just like frozen mousse. He loves mousse.

D disagreed that it was the best ever, but admitted, "It's not too bad, Mommy."

  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t ground cinnamon

Place all of the ingredients in your ice cream maker and process according to your machine. Ours took about 30 minutes to come to a soft, gelato-like texture. Spoon ice cream into a container and freeze for at least an hour before serving. 


  1. I've never made chocolate ice cream either, definitely time to change that! This looks fantastic.

  2. This ice cream social stuff is going to be very dangerous for my wardrobe. I want to try them all! This looks so chocolaty and good and I love how simple it is!

  3. That looks so devine! Scrumptious!

  4. Perfect recipe...easy peasy and delicious. Love that you added cinnamon.

  5. Sounds delicious. I usually make vanilla so we need to try chocolate.

  6. How many servings of ice cream do you get out of one cup of cream? was it just a taste for each of four people or does it puff up in some way to make more volume than a cup would imply?

    1. It does puff up a bit, but I serve this in demitasse cups, so we probably got 8 to 10 servings out of it. It's strong.

  7. Ice cream that tastes like frozen mousse sounds really good!
