Recipe of the Week

From the taste kitchen of Dr. Sarah Laginess and Family

Hot Cocoa Ice Cream




  • 3 c. heavy cream
  • 1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2-3 hot cocoa packets
  • 1 c. mini marshmallows, plus more for garnish



  1. In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat heavy cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. Fold in sweetened condensed milk, hot cocoa packets, and mini marshmallows.
  3. Transfer mixture to a 9″-x-5″ loaf pan and smooth the top with a spatula. Top with additional marshmallows and freeze until firm, 5 hours.
  4. When ready to serve, remove from freezer to let soften, 10 minutes.


I made this with milk chocolate cocoa packets but it would also be good with dark chocolate cocoa packets.

The kids really enjoyed making this.
