How To Make Ice Cream Without An Ice Cream Maker

You can make ice cream at home, no fancy freezers or big-ticket kitchen gadgets required. Hallelujah!

To make "Magic Chocolate Ice Cream," America's Test Kitchen's velvety recipe shown in the video above, you'll need instant coffee (don't worry, it won't affect the taste), bittersweet chocolate, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, salt, heavy cream and a bit of patience.

So smooth.

The crave-appeasing dessert is very similar to Semifreddo, which literally translates to "half cold." The semi-frozen custard-y dish is typically made with cream, sugar and egg whites. Thankfully, you won't have to travel to Italy to earn a lick of the silky sweet. Watch the video above, then get to work!
