Mississippi Mud Ice Cream Ingredients
Heavy Cream – The basis for any good ice cream is rich heavy cream.
Whole Milk – A mix of both heavy cream and whole milk creates the perfect ice cream texture.
Granulated Sugar – Any good ice cream will have a good amount of sugar in it, both for sweetness and texture.
Cocoa Powder – use a good quality unsweetened cocoa powder for best flavor.
Instant Espresso Powder – this adds coffee flavor which enhances the chocolate flavors.
Kosher Salt – A bit of salt balances out the sweetness from the sugar
Semisweet Chocolate – chopped chocolate will cook into our ice cream base for tons of flavor and a rich chocolate ice cream. You can use dark chocolate instead of semisweet if you prefer.
Vanilla Extract – Vanilla enhances the chocolate and espresso flavors even more.
Chocolate Fudge Sauce – Choose your favorite from the store. We’ll be swirling this in to our Mississippi Mud Ice cream.
Oreo Sandwich Cookies – Chop the cookies up roughly into small pieces. Make sure you chop the cookies big enough so that the ice cream has some texture, but not too big that when you take a bit all you get is cookie. I like to cut the cookies about the size of a dime. You can use gluten free Oreos if you need a gluten free option.

Tips for making this Mississippi Mud Ice Cream
Use quality ingredients – When making homemade ice cream, you’ll want to make sure you are using high quality ingredients for the best outcome.
Chill out – If possible, always start with chilled ingredients. This is important for homemade no-churn ice cream recipes and ice cream maker recipes.
In this recipe, it’s important that your ice cream base is very cold and the ice cream machine bowl is frozen.
Don’t skimp on the fat – High fat milks and creams are essential when making homemade ice cream. Opting for a low-fat option often leads to icy ice creams and inconsistency in the texture.
Don’t go crazy with the add-ins – If you’re adding in additional ingredients, pick one or two and make sure they are chopped into pieces no larger than a blueberry or pea.
Don’t skimp on the sugar – Sugar not only adds sweetness to homemade ice creams, it also helps with the texture. Sugar is essential for the creamy texture in ice cream.
Make it Gluten Free – You can use any brand of chocolate sandwich cookies for this Mississippi mud ice cream recipe.
Oreos also makes a gluten free version. Use gluten free sandwich cookies to make Mississippi Mud ice cream gluten free.
No Churn Mississippi Mud Ice Cream
To make this Mississippi mud ice cream no-churn, chill a shallow container or a loaf pan in the freezer while you mix the ice cream ingredients.
Pour the ice cream mixture into the prepared pan and freeze for 3-4 hours. Stir the ice cream every 30 minutes for the first 2 hours to help add air.
This will help create a creamy, smooth texture.
