Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream

I combined two recipes to make this chocolate fudge ice cream. So it goes without saying that it will take a little bit of effort. But it is so worth it as this ice cream is one of the best I have ever made.

When we moved to Gordons Bay we rented a property and decided the best thing to do would be to have a post box. At the time Dave was collecting his boys from Somerset West on a regular basis and he took one out there as none were available in Gordons Bay. But over time that became my errand to run, and it was out of my way. Eventually we could get a postal box closer to home and we took that, allowing the two to overlap by a few months. This year we have decided to close the box when it comes up for renewal. Most of our accounts come via email and we get very little posted to us. Making the annual cost a waste of money. I am slowly updating our postal address with work things being changed to our office address.

And anything private to our home address. All of this is being done in writing and the response has been laughable to say the least. One policy says I now live in Strand as Gordons Bay is not an option. And my insurance company changed my residential address to something else, leaving the postal address as is. And then they tell me it is my responsibility to ensure my contact details are correct. But how can I even do that if they cannot read? Or action the request with the correct information as provided to them? Do you get your post at home, at the office or to a postal box?

Chocolate Fudge Ice Cream

  • Place the ice cream mixture into your churner and leave to churn for a few minutes
  • Then drop small amounts of the fudge into the churner until it is all combined
  • Once you have finished churning place the ice cream into a freezer container and place into the freezer for at least 3 hours before using


* if you do not drink, use an extract of your choice. ** I did not roll up all of the fudge into balls. I added some to milk to make hot chocolate. And used some to make fudge ice cream.

  1. we get our mail at home.

    it seems like you have got caught up in some red tape; hopefully they all get their act together soon.

    fortunately, like us, it seems you don’t get too mcuh mail delivered.

    and that ice cream looks so good!

  2. I have this with the whiskey! We have home delivery at one house and a PO Box at our vacation home. It’s about a mile away which was wonderful when we moved up there during the pandemic.

  3. We have a vast selection of premium ice creams available, so I haven’t made it in ages, and in fact gave away the ice cream maker long ago. Your recipe looks delicious, though, It was like so many kitchen gadgets: used a lot and then abandoned. I’m thinking pasta machine, espresso machine, slow cooker (though I still use it occasionally) and also thinking of all the ones I did not buy.

    best… mae at

  4. I can only imagine how good this ice cream tastes- so rich and creamy looking too. There is nothing like homemade ice cream.

  5. I think I’ll have to get a churner, Tandy. My sister has one and her home made ice cream is delicious. We still get mail to our home address, but hardly ever as who uses the corrupt South African postal system?

    1. Funnily enough, the banks still use the postal system! A churner is so worth it if you are going to make ice cream often 🙂
