Dark Chocolate Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream // take a megabite

If I had a nickel for how every time I put a heart in a post, I’d have many nickels. I might be equally nickel-rich if applied to frozen chocolate. What can I say? I love love AND chocolate. Truth.

Dark Chocolate Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream // take a megabite

This is that kind of chocolate ice cream that makes you swear there’s coffee in it, but there’s not. It’s also creamy and dreamy and filled with Oreos… I mean Joe-Joe’s.

I’m the type of girl that would never order a blizzard with vanilla ice cream. Never. I want double the chocolate as often as possible. So get ready, world, there’s more chocolate ice cream recipes coming up forever and always!

Dark Chocolate Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream // take a megabite

Chocolate Oreo Blizzard Ice Cream (makes 1 hefty quart)
Recipe adapted from David + Jeni + Joe Joe’s

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 1 T + 1 t cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 oz (3 T) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 t fine sea salt
  • 3 T unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder, sifted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups heavy cream
  • 2 T light corn syrup
  • 5 oz. dark chocolate, chopped
  • Oreos or Joe-Joe’s

Directions:

  1. Mix about 2 tablespoons of the milk with the cornstarch in a small bowl. Stir together to make a smooth slurry. Whisk the cream cheese and salt in a medium bowl until smooth. Chop dark chocolate and add to the cream cheese mixture.
  2. Combine the remaining milk, cocoa powder, cream, sugar, and corn syrup in a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a rolling boil over medium-high heat, and boil for 4 minutes. Remove from heat and gradually whisk in the cornstarch slurry. Bring the mixture back to a boil for one minute, or until thickened slightly.
  3. Pour over the cream cheese and chocolate mixture. Whisk until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 4 hours or until cool throughout.
  4. Churn according to your ice cream maker’s manufacturer’s instructions. Layer with generous handfuls of crumbled Oreos or Joe-Joe’s Cover with plastic wrap directly on the surface and freeze for at least 4 hours. Serve with more cookies!

It looks so dark and rich and perfect. Growing up in the summer, Blizzards were the end-all-be-all for me 🙂

Chocolate + Chocolate + Even More Chocolate = best life ever. This looks awesome! Also, one of my bffs used to use her grandmother’s gold flatware at our weekly supper clubs and I always so ritzy and cared for when I used them. I finally scored a set off eBay and I am in luuurve. I love yours with their pretty scalloped tops!

Thanks, Amy! I just have 2 spoons currently, but Cindy gets her gold flatware out for our lady parties! It’s my fave.
