  3. French Silk Pie Ice Cream Recipe

When it’s made well, French silk pie is a rich pie with deep chocolate flavor, not just a box of chocolate pudding in a pie shell. This French silk pie ice cream is definitely the former: an extra-deep chocolate ice cream that is thick and smooth, extremely decadent and – dare I say – almost guilty? Ok, food should never be considered guilty, but instead enjoyed with abandon.

Make this and enjoy the treat!

Prep Time 20 mins
Cook Time 25 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 5 cups


  • 1 ¾ cups whole milk
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 ½ tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 oz bittersweet chocolate


  • Whisk together the milk and cream.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, cocoa powder and cornstarch. Mix until evenly combined and then whisk into the milk mixture.
  • Place over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until the mixture starts to steam. While coming up to a warm temperature cut the chocolate into small pieces and set aside. Continue to whisk and bring the ice cream mixture to a boil. When boiling throughout, remove from heat. Pass through strainer if needed.
  • Whisk in vanilla and chocolate. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Cool off slightly, 5-8 minutes.
  • Pour into an airtight container and chill 8-10 hours.
  • To freeze, remove from refrigerator and pour into ice cream freezer. Follow the directions with your freezer; each one can vary. My KitchenAid stand mixer (affiliate link) with ice cream maker attachment (affiliate link) takes about 20-25 minutes to freeze fully.
  • Dip into airtight container and place in deep freeze an additional 4-6 hours until hardened.
