Chocolate Ice Cream Bar Ingredients

Chocolate – use high-quality baking chocolate (not the chocolate bars from the candy aisle!).

Whipping cream – use full fat for best results.

Condensed milk – make sure to use sweetened condensed milk and not evaporate milk.

Pineapple juice – adds flavor and sweetness.

How To Make Chocolate Ice Cream Bars

Start with the chocolate shell. Melt the chocolate and add the first layer into the glass on all sides with the teaspoon. Swirl the glass to make sure it’s completely coated. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.

Make the ice cream filling. With an electric mixer, beat together the whipping cream, condensed milk, and pineapple juice until smooth.

Once the chocolate has hardened in the fridge, add the ice cream mixture to the chocolate glasses. Stick an ice cream stick in the cream, then finish off with more of the melted chocolate. Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving.

Tips For Making Chocolate-Covered Ice Cream Bars

You can also use a popsicle mold if you have one.

If you don’t have chocolate, you can make your own “melted chocolate” with cocoa powder.

Mix together 1 cup cocoa powder with 2/3 cup butter or coconut oil.

To make the chocolate coating shiny and add a bit of luster, you can add a teaspoon or two of coconut oil to the melted chocolate.

Add a teaspoon of instant coffee to the cream mixture for a cappuccino-flavored ice cream bar.

If you’re struggling to remove the popsicles from the plastic glass mold, you can run warm water on the outside.

Chocolate Ice Cream Bar Toppings

You can add toppings or add-ins according to your liking. Try any of the following:

Crushed nuts: pistachios, almonds, pecans

Dried fruit: raisins, dried cranberries, chopped apricots

Cake sprinkles

Sweetened shredded coconut

How To Store Chocolate Ice Cream Bars

The chocolate ice cream bars can be stored in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just make sure to store them in a sealable plastic bag or an airtight container.


Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and let it melt for about 30 seconds, stirring halfway through cooking.

Add the first layer into the glass on all sides with the teaspoon. Transfer to the fridge for 10 minutes.

In a bowl add the whipping cream, condensed milk, and pineapple juice.

Mix with an electric mixer.

After time has elapsed fill the glasses with the cream.

Add the ice cream stick to the cream.

Top with another layer of chocolate. Transfer the glasses into the freezer for 2 hours.

After two hours remove the plastic glasses and serve the ice cream.
