  • 2 cups heavy cream cold
  • 1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk around 1-2/3 cups
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1-1/3 cup fresh cherries pitted and chopped
  • 1/3 cup cherry pie filling optional - can use all fresh cherries if desired
  • 3-5 brownie squares broken into small pieces (can use from scratch, box-mix or store-bought)


  1. In a stand mixer with the whip attachment or using your hand mixer, whip heavy whipping cream on high until stiff peaks form.
  2. Whisk together the condensed milk and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Fold in the whipped cream.
  3. Pour half of the ice cream mixture into a 9 x 5 loaf pan or 2-quart ice cream container. Pour half of the chopped cherries and/or cherry pie filling evenly. Sprinkle in half of the brownie pieces. Pour in remaining half of the ice cream then top with more cherries/cherry pie filling. Top with rest of the brownies.
  4. Cover and freeze for 4-5 hours, best if overnight.
  5. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and enjoy immediately.
