Chocolate Ice Cream
I could eat ice cream all the time, but it is definitely the most refreshing in the warm summer months. I chose this recipe off my Pinterest board, Ice Creams, Sorbets, and Popsicles mainly because I had everything on hand and it is hard to find time to go to the store when you work 40+ hours a week. I had to modify the recipe slightly because I used some of the heavy cream when I made buttercream icing. I also substituted the dark cocoa powder for regular cocoa powder but I still used Hershey's. I used dark chocolate chips instead of cutting up chunks of chocolate and finally I failed to put any other goodies in the ice cream but sprinkled chopped cashews and strawberries on top.
I made the mixture early Friday morning, let it chill and then threw it in the ice cream maker Friday afternoon.
Side note: the woman who I linked the recipe to has the same ice cream maker. She linked it to Amazon and turns out it was originally a $110 dollar machine. I got mine for free from my boyfriend who got it in a box full of other kitchen appliances at an auction for $3 because they already had an identical machine from a different auction. So that's a win. By the way, the machine works great and it's so nice that you don't actually need ice to make the ice cream!
