The chocolate variant
The condensed milk ice cream that we have prepared can be enriched with del cocoa powder to create an effect similar to that of chocolate ice cream. If you love the intense taste of dark chocolate, we recommend you choose unsweetened cocoa that will correct the sweetness of the cream and condensed milk.

If you love stracciatella ice cream, add to the mixture, when they are spend three hours in the freezer, some chocolate chips. Adding it at this point, we will not risk it melting and we will get a pleasant crunchy effect!

If the mixture is very watery, you will have to make a passage in the pot with water and sugar to form a sort of compote. Let it cool well and put it in the freezer for about ten minutes before adding it to the mixture after two hours of cooling.
