I'm not sure who figured out that hazelnut and chocolate were the perfect combination, but whoever it was, I might should name my firstborn after them. It is easily my favorite flavor. The best cookies I have ever made and eaten? These right here. Why I never before thought to make Nutella Ice Cream, I'm not sure, but when I was looking for good ice cream recipes the other day, I was very happy to find this one. It was super simple - no eggs, no cooking, just a few ingredients to make a delicious, chocolately dessert.
The recipe I found only makes about 2 cups of ice cream, though. Whoever only make 2 cups of ice cream? Not me. Or anyone else with the last name (or former last name) of Rampey. So here is what I did:
1 jar Nutella
1 c. sugar
1.5 c. heavy cream
3 c. milk.
Mix all ingredients in the stand mixer, chill, and freeze in ice cream machine.
I think it might be better to use warm milk or cream to help the Nutella dissolve in the milk better. There is another recipe I also found that looks even easier that I might try next time.
I'm excited about trying some new flavors of homemade ice cream this summer. Next time, I think I'll try this one, for salted butter caramel ice cream. (Doesn't that just make your mouth water?) I'd also like to try to make some honey ice cream.
What do you think? What sounds good to you? Any interesting flavors we should try?
