We had dinner guests last night, so for my new thing yesterday, I wanted to make a special dessert for them-- ICE CREAM! I never made it before and I don't have an ice cream maker, but I figured it couldn't be that hard, right?
I found a recipe for Nutella ice cream on the food blog Chocolate and Zucchini. Nutella is one of my favorite things-- chocolaty, nutty, and velvety. I heard a rumor there's a dessert restaurant in Italy devoted entirely to it.
The recipe itself was super simple and fairly easy. It only required two ingredients:
Basically, you mix the two together, chill, and then freeze the rest of the day. You do have to take it out and stir as hard as you can about every hour or so. Find the exact recipe here.
So how did it turn out?
After eager anticipation all day, at the time we served it, it hadn't quite set. It was kind of like serving a bowl of milkshake. The taste was good, but the texture was very runny.
BUT... I just checked this morning and this is what it looked like. Nothing wrong with ice cream for breakfast if you ask me!
So, now I have this fantasy of all the unique other flavors I can make. Have you ever made your own ice cream before?
