  • An ice cream maker


  • 2 cups table cream 18% milkfat
  • 2 cups half-and-half 10% milkfat
  • cup cane sugar
  • 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding mix 113 g


  • Add the table cream and half-and-half to a medium-size mixing bowl.
  • Add the entire package of chocolate pudding mix and cane sugar to the cream in the bowl. Mix with a whisk until combined.
  • Set up the chilled ice cream maker according to the manufacturer's directions. Turn on the ice cream maker and slowly pour the ice cream mixture into the freezer bowl. Set a timer for 25-30 minutes. The ice cream will increase in volume and get thicker and creamy as it churns.
  • After 25-30 minutes, it will be the consistency of a soft ice cream cone. Use a rubber spatula or ice cream paddle to remove ice cream from the freezer bowl and place it into serving bowls. Serve immediately and enjoy!
