Recipe Ingredients 

You only need a few simple ingredients to make this ice cream! 

Heavy cream – Creates a rich and flavorful ice cream! Use a fresh, good quality heavy cream with plenty of milk fat.

Sweetened condensed milk – This helps add sweetness to the ice cream without additional sugar, and also helps to make a soft and smooth ice cream. Do not substitute with evaporated milk.

Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips – Use a good quality chocolate for the best flavor! You could also use a quality chocolate bar that has been chopped.

Cherries – these can be fresh or frozen. If using frozen, you will want to thaw them out first! 

What kind of cherries should I use?

You can use a variety of cherries for this recipe. Personally I like black, sweet cherries the best. Bing Cherries are also a flavorful option!
