This extra thick, smooth, rich and creamy chocolate ice cream has a lot of body to it and is so simple to make.

Jello Pudding Is the Secret

Instant chocolate pudding is the secret to making this ice cream recipe turn out great time after time. I personally prefer Jello brand instant pudding for this recipe. Also, if you don’t care for chocolate you could make this recipe with Jello vanilla instant pudding. I think it would turn out just fine.
