Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Tin

    Prepare Tin

    Reshape aluminum tin if bent. Trim parchment paper to match the size of the tin and set both aside, keeping separate.

  2. Make Ice Cream Base

    Make Ice Cream Base

    In a medium bowl, vigorously whisk heavy cream until thickened and stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Whipping cream takes a bit of elbow grease, but it'll be worth it, just keep going! If you're not using a wire whisk, expect this to take longer. Add condensed milk and whisk gently to combine to make ice cream base.

  3. Freeze Ice Cream

    Freeze Ice Cream

    Transfer ice cream base to tin and spread in an even layer. Place trimmed parchment on top of ice cream, pressing to adhere. Transfer tin to a flat surface in freezer. Chill until thick and custard-like, 45-60 minutes.

  4. Toast Coconut

    Toast Coconut

    While ice cream freezes, place coconut flakes in a medium nonstick pan over medium heat. Toast, stirring frequently, until golden, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside. 

  5. Make Chocolate Sauce

    Make Chocolate Sauce

    Place coconut oil in a small heatsafe bowl and microwave until just melted, about 30 seconds. Add chocolate and stir until chocolate is melted and sauce is smooth. 

  6. Plate Ice Cream

    Plate Ice Cream

    When ice cream has reached desired consistency, scoop into bowls. Drizzle over chocolate sauce and sprinkle with toasted coconut. Dig into your sensational sundae!
