“What happened to you?” Max asked. “Looks like you got beat up.”

“Let’s just say I had a run-in with a whisk. One with an attachment disorder,” Trixie said, licking her wounds with a chocolate covered spatula.

Max leaned in for a taste. “Who knew an ice cream habit could be so dangerous?”

“That’s cold,” said Trixie, “but do puns belong in noir?”

“Noir? What’s that supposed to mean?” Max asked.

“It’s a genre,” Trixie duhhed with a gratuitous link.

“You’re killing me,” said Max.

Slowly with sweets, thought Trixie before making another batch.

Black and White Ice Cream

Okay, actually chocolate and vanilla swirl. But this ice cream brings everybody to the yard. Good thing it's easy to make. WARNING: Contains dangerous amounts of luscious, creamy flavor. Eater discretion is advised.


  • 2 cups (1 pint) heavy cream, whipped
  • 1-14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa


In a medium bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk, vanilla extract, and butter. Blend this mixture into prepared whipped cream. Go ahead, taste. It's called quality control. Pour half of this delicious blend into a loaf pan or storage container.

Add unsweetened cocoa to remaining mixture and combine thoroughly. Pour chocolate into pan with vanilla ice cream. Swirl if you feel like it. Or put your feet up while the ice cream chills.

Freeze for 3 - 4 hours before serving. By the way, brownies love spending time with this ice cream.

  6. This ice cream looks delicious!! I’ve been experimenting with ice creams too but not much with dairy ingredient ice creams but will be experimenting soon. Pinning!!

    • It’s so good and easy too. This was the first ice cream I ever made. The idea of adding whipped cream to sweetened condensed milk appeared on a can of Eagle Brand many years ago. The possibilities are endless.
