Nutella Toffee Ice Cream is the creamiest no churn ice cream with a swirl of chocolate hazelnut spread and studded with crunchy bits of Heath Bar candy. This super easy recipe has just five ingredients and NO ice cream maker is needed. The hardest part will be waiting for it to freeze before you enjoy a scoop of this heavenly frozen dessert.

Originally published August 19, 2014.

Back when I first made this recipe, I also wrote posts where I rambled on about random goings-on in my life. Blogging has changed since then, and now I focus more on the recipe and the ingredients and the techniques.

Back then I was apologizing because I had grand intentions of writing my essays and just showing you photos to entice you to make this incredible frozen treat instead of trying to actually help you make the recipe.

My intentions are much better these days, but this ice cream is still truly heavenly.

And speaking of heavenly, while the road to you-know-where may be paved with those aforementioned good intentions, I think the road to Heaven is paved with Nutella swirl ice cream.

Let’s talk about how to make it.

No-Churn Ice Cream

Even if you don’t have an ice cream maker or don’t want to deal with the work of making a custard base, you can still enjoy decadently creamy but super easy homemade ice cream. It all starts with a pint of heavy cream and a can of sweetened condensed milk.

First the heavy cream is whipped to soft peaks. I usually like to add a little vanilla extract at this time for almost any flavor I am making.

The key to whipping cream is to make sure it is very cold, and even shilling your bowl helps. You can use a whisk, stand mixer with a whisk attachment, or a hand mixer with beaters. But I prefer to use the whisk attachment for my simple Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer.

Then fold the sweetened condensed milk into the whipped heavy cream along with any other flavors, swirls, or mix-ins.

Transfer the entire mixture to a freezer-safe container, cover, and give it several hours to freeze completely. I’m sure there are better options for containers, but I find these no-churn ice cream recipes always fit nicely into a 9 inch loaf pan.

Now that you know the basic technique, the possibilities are endless.

Toffee Nutella Ice Cream Recipe

This version of no-churn ice cream is rich and creamy with ribbons of Nutella for a perfect dose of chocolate hazelnut flavor throughout the vanilla base. Then, since I must have texture in my ice cream, pieces of toffee are scattered through for crunchy little bits that add a buttery balance to the sweet lusciousness.

What You’ll Need

Brianne’s pro recipe tips

  • Make sure your heavy cream is super cold. Using a metal bowl and popping it into the fridge or freezer for a bit before you start also helps.
  • Be sure to fold the sweetened condensed milk in gently but thoroughly. You don’t want to leave thick globs of it.
  • You can add the Nutella with the toffee and fold it in together, but sometimes it is hard to swirl it that way. So it may be easier to add little dollops after you transfer it to the freezer container then swirl it in with a butter knife.

    I wanna say my boys would love this since they love Nutella, but I’m all about that Heath Bar too. Absolutely love this!

  2. Amy

    I’ve made this several times and my family eats it up in no time! The only thing I’d recommend is editing your instructions as you left out adding the 1 t. vanilla there.

    1. Brianne Cupcakes & Kale Chips

      Oh gosh, Amy. Thank you for catching that omission. I’ve corrected the recipe. I’m glad to hear that your family enjoys the ice cream recipe!

  3. Deb Harris

    My favorite ice cream is a strong, rich coffee flavored. I tried a coffee no churn ice cream getting it’s coffee flavor from instant espresso powder. I’m picturing it now with ribbons of Nutella running thru. After trying yours, I may have to try that.

  4. angela

  6. Terri/LoveandConfections

    I love anything and everything that has Nutella and this ice cream looks fabulous! Hope the move prep is going well.

  7. I never make ice cream since I don’t have an ice cream freezer or maker. I totally, totally love that I can make this without one. I will definitely be trying this recipe! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  8. I have never in my life had Nutella, but I ALMOST want to risk my life and dive head first into this recipe! (I say risk my life because I have a lot of food allergies). You make this just look SO GOOD!
