For the dulce de leche

  • 13.5 oz sweetened condensed milk (1 can)
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

For the fudge ripple

For the ice cream

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 1/4 cups mini chocolate chips (remainder of 10 oz. bag)


For the dulce de leche:

  • Pour the entire can of sweetened condensed milk in a bowl on top of a double boiler and place over a pot of simmering water. 
  • Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 1-1½ hours, or until thick and light caramel colored.
  • Cool to room temperature (about an hour). Stir in the sea salt and ½ cup heavy cream.

For the fudge ripple:

  • Whisk together the water, cocoa powder, and corn syrup in a small pot.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring frequently, then reduce heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat and add the chocolate chips. Stir until smooth.
  • Place in the refrigerator until ready to use, cooling at least to room temperature (it will be fairly liquidy, not thick).

For the ice cream:

  • Pour the 1½ cups heavy cream in a large bowl and, using the whisk attachment of a stand mixer or a hand mixer, beat until stiff peaks are formed.
  • Gently fold in the cooled dulce de leche, then gently fold in the chocolate chips.
  • Pour half of the ice cream mixture into a freezer-safe container and top with about half of the fudge ripple mixture. Swirl with a knife or skewer.
  • Top with the remaining ice cream mixture and fudge ripple mixture, and swirl with a knife or skewer.
  • Cover and freeze for 4-6 hours, or overnight.
