Lick Honest Ice Creams- 1100 S. Lamar Blvd., 6555 Burnet Rd., 1905 Aldrich St. 

This ice cream shop opened its doors to Austinites in 2011 and became popular because of their “honesty.” Ingredients with high fructose corn syrup or preservatives have no place at Lick’s and uses “pure, wholesome ingredients.” With the array of flavors they offer, make sure to try out the dark chocolate today.

Ranch Road is our Texas take on a classic, y'all!🍦☀️🌵 Our malted chocolate ice cream, made with local bean-to-bar @srslychocolate, is chock full of house made vanilla bean marshmallows and salted San Saba pecans. It's all things nutty, crunchy, chewy, sweet, savory, and refreshing, just the way we need it on these hot Texas days. Scoops and pints of this flavor are available at our Austin & San Antonio scoop shops, and online! Follow the link in our profile for nationwide shipping... and get it before it (or you) melts! . . . 📸 by @annieraydotnet #ranchroad #rockyroad #texas #texasicecream #local #seasonal #artisan #artisanicecream #beantobar #beantobarchocolate #sansabapecans #pecan #texaspecans #austin #atx #atxeats #sanantonio #satx #safoodie #texasproud #texasforever #lickhonesticecreams #lickicecream #lickyall

Prohibition Creamery- 1407 E. 7th St.

Alcohol and ice cream together? Yes. This creamery creates boozy ice cream concoctions for the people of Austin, although they do have alcohol-free flavors. If you’re feeling like you want to spike your dessert, celebrate by getting the whiskey chocolate flavor. 

Amy’s Ice Creams-

Whether you’re an Austin native or a stopping by for a few days, Amy’s Ice Creams is the place to go for a scoop (or two… OK, three.) With 13 different locations sprinkled across Austin, you’re sure to have one nearby. With more than 350 different flavors that are constantly being rotated out, the Belgian Chocolate is an all-time favorite.

Cow Tipping Creamery- 4715 S. Lamar Blvd.

This soft-serve creamery has something for everyone — shakes, cones, sundaes and more. With classic flavors available and a few specialty ones rotated out, National Chocolate Ice Cream Day sounds like the perfect day to enjoy the “Death By Chocolate.” It comes with milk chocolate soft serve, triple fudge brownie chunks, cocoa-cookie crumb, some chocolate chips and to top it off — brown sugar hot fudge. Go big or go home, right?

Dolce Neve- 1713 S. 1st St.

Gelato definitely has its place in Austin and Dolce Neve is proof. The trio that started the shop did all because of their love for gelato and makes it all from scratch with raw ingredients, according to their website. With their staple, rotating and seasonal flavors, there’s some chocolatey goodness you’ll be sure to fine, like the “Chocolate 70%.”
