Easy No Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream

A few years ago, I was in one of my get-rid-of-everything-I-never-use moods and I donated my seldom used electric ice cream churn. Of course, a few months down the road, I had a bright idea to make homemade ice cream. Then it dawned on me that I didn’t have an ice cream churn. Duh! So, I made No Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream. This stuff is seriously good and so easy to make.

No Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream is my husband’s favorite. This faux ice cream is filled with chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, and salted nuts. I could almost drink it before placing it in the freezer to harden, but I always make myself wait.

A few days ago, I made No Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream when the family came over and everyone raved about this delicious frozen treat. My daughter asked if I’d make it for her birthday. Of course, I will. It’s so easy to throw together. I always make it the night before since it needs to freeze for at least five hours.

Not-So-Funny Story

My favorite ice cream scoop of all is the old one from Pampered Chef. (I’m not an affiliate of Pampered Chef. I just like their stuff). It’s filled with some type of liquid that enables you to scoop out frozen ice cream with ease. However, it’s not dishwasher safe. No matter how many times I’ve begged and pleaded my family to keep it out of the dishwasher, it somehow ends up there.

This past Sunday when all 16 members of my family were here for lunch, I had a make your own sundae bar for dessert. I served my homemade no churn Rocky Road Ice Cream and Blue Bunny Vanilla plus a pile of toppings. When I grabbed my trusty ice cream scoop, this horrible black stuff came off the scoop and left tracks in the vanilla ice cream. Yuck! Glad it wasn’t the rocky road! I had to scrape away the top layer of the ice cream and the scoop had to die. It was time.

When I tried to find a replacement ice cream scoop, I saw that the Pampered Chef one had been recalled! What? Why didn’t I know? So, now I’m on the hunt for a new ice cream scoop and I’m looking at these.

(If you click on one of the links below, I may make a small commision with no added cost to you.)

I like this ice cream scoop because it has a padded handle and comes in several cool colors. Plus, it’s under 10 bucks.

No Churn Rocky Road Ice Cream and Favorite Scoop

The ice cream scoop below is the mac daddy of all ice cream scoops. Developed by an aerospace engineer, the Midnight Scoop easily scoops through hardened ice cream. It’s also designed to be easy on your wrist. According to the makers, this is perfect for children, the elderly and those suffering from carpal tunnel, arthritis, and repetitive stress injury. I think I’m sold!

  7. I love making homemade ice cream! No churn is the best, because you don’t have to have an ice cream maker, or drag one out, if you do have one. I am forever at a battle searching for the perfect ice cream scoop. I had a really great one from Target, that wasn’t dishwasher safe, and of course, it found its way there, and the coating started flaking and peeling off. I’ll have to get one of these!

  8. I’m a huge fan of ice cream and I’m always looking for yummy easy ice cream recipes from my family.
