Something curious happened the summer of my freshman year in college. Frozen custard shops popped up all over town, all at once. I distinctly remember at least FIVE brand-new custard shops opening that summer, and possibly more. They were all the rage!

Lines of soon-to-be patrons snaked across the parking lots, so much so, that you could barely pull in. What was the big deal about frozen custard you wonder? Well, if you are asking, it’s certain you haven’t tasted it.

Making Chocolate Pretzel Frozen Custard Recipe #icecream #summer

Frozen custard, the most silky and decadent treat in the ice cream family, is known for it’s dense velvety texture. This texture is derived by the marriage of heavy cream and numerous egg yolks. It’s a truly beautiful union!

Custard laughs in the face of calorie counters. Calories-shmalories!

It beckons you back again and again. No wonder so many shops were able to open and thrive that year. Tulsa, Oklahoma was suddenly a much happier place to live… Fat and happy that is. *wink*

I made Chocolate Pretzel Frozen Custard one evening when we had guests over for dinner. This particular group of friends have tasted a great deal of my recipes and always make me feel like Julia Child.

Let me tell you, they could not stop talking about the Chocolate Pretzel Frozen Custard; more so than anything else I’ve ever served them that evening.

In fact a couple of them, who don’t even eat ice cream, said it was their new favorite dessert, hands down. One friend, who’s name will remain anonymous, now checks my freezer every time he walks in the door… It was that good.

Chocolate Pretzel Frozen Custard Recipe - An ultra silky and salty-sweet homemade ice cream recipe for summer!
Servings: 6 cups

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a saucepan over medium-low heat, whisk together cream, milk, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture just to a boil.
  • While the cream mixture is heating, use an immersion blender to whip the egg yolks and white sugar until it’s pale and thick.
  • Whisking the cream mixture constantly, slowly pour in the egg mixture until it’s well-combined. (I used the immersion blender for this as well.)
  • Stir, and allow the mixture to thicken for a couple minutes. Strain the mixture to eliminate any clumps and place in an airtight container. Put it into the refrigerator for a few hours, until completely chilled. (If in a hurry, place in the freezer for 1 hour. Don’t forget about it!)
  • Once the mixture is chilled, pour it into an electric ice cream maker and churn for 20+ minutes to your desired consistency. Finally pour in the pretzel pieces and churn another minute.
  • Serve immediately or place in the freezer to harden.

  1. I’ve made this twice now. It’s very good and the texture is amazing even once it’s been in the freezer for a bit. It’s very smooth and creamy. I will say that unless you really like a very strong chocolate taste, I would cut back on the cocoa powder. 1 cup leaves it a bit too much like eating cocoa powder. Next time I make it I will definitely cut it back to 1/2 a cup.

  2. I’ll take frozen custard over ice cream any day. And I love the combination of sweet and salty in this chocolate pretzel version! 

  3. Another mindblowing recipe! Thanks Sommer!

  4. I just got an ice cream maker and can’t wait to try this out. I love the combo of salty/sweet. Thanks for such great recipes via my email.

  5. This looks soooooo good. I love sweet and salty and can never say no to ice cream. You’re right about custard being addicting. We used to have a place that served it but I’m pretty sure they closed :( I will most definitely need to try this recipe out. There’s not much better than homemade sweets.

  6. Your mode of describing the whole thing in this paragraph is truly fastidious, all can without difficulty understand it, Thanks a lot.

  7. I subscribe!

  8. Ice cream will always be my fave!

  10. This looks sooooo amazing! I want some right now!

    Check out my latest recipe @ bakingblissful.blogspot.com

  11. I finally got around to making this, and it’s amazing! It was also MUCH easier to make than any of the chocolate ice cream recipes I’ve made before. One note, I cut the recipe down by 25%. I have the Cuisinart ice cream maker, and all of my recipes max out the liquid ingredients at 3 cups, which almost overflows the tub when done churning.

  13. Words can’t even describe how amazingly delicious this looks right now. If only I had an ice cream maker…I sense a trip to the store coming up! ;-)

  67. Chocolate, salty and crunchy–what a combo! Great recipe. Thanks for sharing.

  68. I love my Cuisenart Ice Cream makers, too. I have three of them! And an extra bowl and sometimes (in the summer) have them all going at once! There is nothing like homemade ice cream at a summer party! This custard looks like something one would eat in private, with the lights out. It is that sinful.
    YUM!

  79. The custard looks delish ! Good luck with the giveaway !

  80. My favorite frozen treat is mint chip ice cream. In case you don’t win this give away: Quick tip for all of you that want to make this but don’t have an ice cream maker: Assuming you have a stand mixer (such as a Kitchen Aid), just pour it in the bowl of the mixer to chill. When it’s cold, give it a 30 second whirl in the mixer, put it in the freezer for half an hour, take it out and mix for 30 seconds, put it back in the freezer for half and hour, repeat until you have the consistency of ice cream/custard. Voila!

  81. I love the salty and sweet combo. Yum! The custard pretzels sound great. What a generous giveaway! Thanks for sharing!

  82. I have never had frozen custard but I sure would put that machine to good use! My favorite frozen treat? I think I have to go with with classic: ice-cream…homemade even better :)

  85. Hubba hubba! :D My favorite frozen treat?!?!?!? Yikes, that’s a hard one. Let’s see, I would have to say…. maple walnut ice cream with chocolate sprinkles! :D

  86. We only have one (that I know of) frozen custard place here in Louisville. Well… that is, HAD. We found out they closed down this past fall. It was a sad day. But now with this recipe, I think I can bring back frozen custard to our lives without even leaving home!

  87. It’s so hard to pick one frozen treat! I would have to go with a cookies and cream milk shake!

  88. wow this looks amazing your blog just gets better and better love Rebecca

  89. WHOA! I love this idea!! I love chocolate-covered pretzels so I know I would love this! I’m totally saving it for the day I finally bust out my ice cream maker!!

  91. looks delicious and lovely treat
    I like ice cream

  92. That is something I’ve never tried, but it sounds delicious!
    My favorite frozen treat would have to be ice cream…any ice cream! I love that stuff. :)

  93. I love strawberry ice cream with chocolate chunks or strawberry soft serve! Yum!

  94. I have always wanted one of these. I would love to win one!

  95. I’m definitely making your custard. My family will be SO happy!

  96. froyo! love it!

  97. Yum! Great recipe! One of my favorite things to eat in the Summer growing up was purple cow ice cream(blackberry with chocolate and white chocolate chips) with pretzels dipped in it. I love salty/sweet.

  98. Neato, Sommer! What a great giveaway! You’ve had the goods for real lately (smile). Ooh, and your chocolate pretzel custard sounds delicious. I think my favorite ice cream though is a good, old fashioned butter pecan that’s not too sweet. Yeah…

  99. I LOVE all things frozen! My favorite is Starbuck’s java chip ice cream :)

  100. My FAVORITE frozen treat would have to be rainbow sherbet a la Baskin Robbins! I don’t know why but I could seriously eat it everyday and be happy as a clam.

  101. That would be frozen custard!!!!!

  102. This is awesome!! I love pretzels and even more so when they’re swirled in to chocolate custard!!

  103. My all-time favorite frozen treat is this Flipino shaved ice dessert called “halo-halo” which literally translates to mix-mix. The fillings vary, but usually there are layers of beans and tropical fruits which are topped with shaved ice. Often times it has ube halaya (purple yam jam), leche flan, and ice cream on top of the ice. Then to finish, some sort of milk is poured all over the halo-halo.
    To eat it, you have to mix it all together.
    If you ever get a chance to try it, you def should!

  104. Love chocolate chip ice cream sandwiched between chocolate chip cookies!

  105. This looks and sounds amazing. I just became a subscriber!!!!

  108. I already have a cuisinart IC maker but I could always use a second one! My fave frozen treat is the Cashew Turtle Ice Cream from Cherry Hill Farms here in MA. It’s not something I can indulge in often but it is the bomb!

  109. I was just thinking that I need an ice cream maker… I like cubby crunch@bobtail…toffee and oreos plus sprinkles so I don’t have to choose…

  110. My favorite frozen treat is definitely black raspberry ice cream. It doesn’t hurt if it has chocolate chips in it!

  111. oh wow this looks delicious, i bet it tasted it too! im not sure what my favourite frozen treat is but i think it’s probably ben n jerrys..so many flavours to choose from yum!

  146. Oh yes, I remember that year….most are gone now. Here in Tulsa we still have a couple Freckles Frozen Custard stands. And there is a Freddy’s Custard in the mall. It is the kind of pleasure where I buy one small and share with hubby and hope I am still a good girl. I usually get something with coconut but you can never do better than chocolate.

  147. Oh my that looks decadent…..so of course I yearn for it. ;) I’m pretty sure I’d check the freezer for hidden custard as well…ehehehe.

  153. My favorite frozen treat is gelato. We used to have the BEST gelato place right down the street, but one day we showed up and they were gone. :( Sad day. I’ve never made my own ice cream, because I have never owned an ice cream maker. Sure would like to though!

  154. I am an ASP email subscriber.

    Love the recipe! YUM YUM YUM !!!

  155. I retweeted this too! Good luck with the giveaway!! :)

  156. Wow! I have ALWAYS wanted an ice cream maker.

    My favorite frozen treat is Ted Drews Frozen Custard in St. Louis. Very decadent!

  157. It’s funny how one thing pops up and then they’re all over the place. This looks ridiculous, and the I love the molds!

  159. I love Ben and Jerry’s Half Baked Fro Yo! Yummy

  160. Oh my goodness that looks amazing!! My favorite ice cream treat is chocolate chip cookie dough, but that looks like it might kick cookie doughs butt!

I am definitely going to try this one out, I always love your recipes and this looks addictingly good! :) My favorite frozen treat is pomegranate froyo…I top it with fresh berries…so yummy!

  162. My husband spent some time in Milwaukee where custard is king but it wasn’t until I started making my own that I really got it. Not only is it rich and smooth but the flavors really seem to come through better than with standard ice cream. I can’t wait for summer so I can make some more Thai Basil frozen custard.
