You will love how easy and delicious this no churn vanilla fudge swirl ice cream is! This wonderful creamy recipe requires no special equipment so it is super easy to make.

The mix of vanilla and fudge swirl is one of my family’s absolute favorite ice cream combinations. And best of all, this recipe only requires four ingredients to make!

Growing up I would help my aunt make ice cream for her bakery and I remember how it seemed to take forever to make her fudge vanilla ice cream. Don’t get me wrong, it was absolutely amazing but sometimes I just don’t have enough time to go all out and use her homemade recipe. Life and family just doesn’t always allow the luxury.

But that is exactly why I love this no churn recipe so much. Prep time is really quick and I can whip it together and get back to the family while it chills. It’s really such a wonderful recipe for those crunched on time.

How To Make Vanilla Fudge Swirl Ice Cream

whipping cream

This recipe only has four ingredients! And for the fudge you have the option to use store bought or make your own. Either works so if you don’t have the time to made your hot fudge from scratch don’t sweat it.

Ingredients

  • 14 oz. Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 Tbs. Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 1/3 Cups Hot Fudge
  • 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream

For this recipe you will need a hand mixer and some mixing bowls. Start by adding your heavy whipping cream in a bowl and mixing it on high until it forms stiff peaks. In a second bowl add your sweetened condensed milk and vanilla.

Then gradually fold your whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture until well incorporated.

Next pour your mixture into a glass pan and chill it in your freezer for about 75 minutes.

Chilling your ice cream before adding your fudge will allow you to make prettier swirls so don’t skip this step.

Once chilled, take your vanilla ice cream out of the freezer. Take a couple tablespoons of fudge at a time and drop it on top of your ice cream.

Now take a butter knife and swirl the fudge into your ice cream. Continue until desired amount of fudge has been added.

Place your ice cream back in the freezer, and leave overnight (or eight hours).

Conclusion

This recipe is great as is but it also takes other toppings really well. My family likes adding strawberry or crumbled cookies. It’s super easy to make and the creamy consistency is almost as good as churn ice cream. My family hardly can tell the difference and I wouldn’t be surprised if your family can’t either.
