  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • ½ cup (1.5-ounces) unsweetened cocoa (See Tip 1)
  • 2 cups (16-ounces) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup (1.6-ounces) mini marshmallows
  • 1 cup (4-ounces) almond pieces, toasted (See Tip 2)
  • ½ cup (3-ounces) mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (See Tip 3)


  • Place 9 x 5 x 3-inch metal loaf pan in freezer to chill.
  • Mix together the sweetened condensed milk and unsweetened cocoa. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat the heavy cream on high until stiff peaks form.
  • Fold in about a cup of whipped cream to sweetened condensed mixture with a rubber spatula until well combined. Then fold the lightened mixture into the whipped cream until well blended. 
  • Fold in mini marshmallows, toasted almonds and mini chocolate chips to the chocolate ice cream.
  • Transfer ice cream to chilled loaf pan. Cover and freeze for at least 6 hours.


  1. I used Hershey's Special Dark cocoa which is Dutch processed. However, you can also use regular unsweetened cocoa.
  2. To toast the almond pieces, place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 350°F for 8 minutes. Watch carefully to ensure that the almonds don't burn.
  3. I would not use regular sized chocolate chips. The mini chocolate chips can be omitted.
