I mean, we all love chocolate ice cream. Young and old alike, chocolate is just classic. There are so many variations for chocolate ice creams and while I won’t say this one is the best one…it comes pretty close. Flavoring it with Nutella chocolate spread not only gives this an amazing flavor but also lends to a perfectly smooth, creamy and always scoop-able consistency. I tried various chocolates and flavors, but this one wasn’t only simple, I simply couldn’t get it out of my mind!

The Nutella literally keeps this ice cream the perfect consistency. I cannot stress this enough – it is always soft and amazing!

Nutella flavored ice cream is a must for anyone that is addicted to this creamy spread! It's pretty much like eating the real thing…but better!
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Chill Time 6 hours
Servings 12


  • 2 cups + 3 tbsp whole milk
  • 1 ¼ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp corn syrup
  • ¾ tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp espresso powder
  • 1 cup Nutella chocolate hazelnut spread


  • Combine 2 cups milk and cream in a 4-quart kettle. A large kettle is important so the mixture does not boil over.
  • Add the sugar, corn syrup and salt.
  • Place over medium-high to high heat and stir frequently so the mixture does not scorch.
  • While the mixture is heating, whisk the reserved 3 tablespoons of milk and cornstarch until dissolved. This creates a cornstarch slurry.
  • Bring the milk mixture to a boil. It seems wrong to boil the milk, but this works! Let the mixture boil well, stirring constantly for a few minutes.
  • After 2-3 minutes, remove from heat and whisk in the cornstarch slurry.
  • Once mixed in, place back on medium heat until the mixture just begins to bubble, letting you know the cornstarch has been activated.
  • Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, espresso powder, and Nutella. Stir until Nutella is completely dissolved into the ice cream base. Let the mixture cool.
  • Place in an airtight container and chill completely. I find overnight is best.
  • When ready to freeze, remove from refrigerator and freeze using an ice cream maker. Follow the instructions with your maker. My KitchenAid attachment takes about 25 minutes.
  • At this point, the ice cream is a soft-serve consistency. Place in a deep freeze to chill fully
