When it's Hot, What More is There Besides Homemade ice Cream?

It doesn't even need to be hot to enjoy ice cream. There are so many wonderful flavors to choose from. Have you ever had maple walnut ice cream with pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, or peppermint stick ice cream at Christmas? And, I don't know about you but I find homemade ice cream much more delicious and nutritious than store bought ice cream. Many people would love to make ice cream at home but don't have a machine that makes it easy. Well now, everyone can make easy homemade ice cream. You don't need a lot of ingredients and this ice cream is super creamy just like high quality ice cream. So lets get started.

Here are the Ingredients you Will Need:

For this recipe we are going to be making Chocolate Fleck Caramel Ice Cream. You will need:

  • 2 cups or 1 pint whipping cream

  • Spoon one-third of the mixture into a freezer container, drizzle with the caramel

Scrape the Sweetened Condensed Milk Into a Bowl

I use a silicone spatula to get as much of the sweetened condensed milk as I can out of the can. You will not need a particularly large bowl, but one you can mix in all the ingredients easily without spillage.

Measure the Real Chocolate Bits Into a Half cup Measure

I use ready grated chocolate that I buy from Bernard Callebaut but you can use real chocolate sprinkles or you can grate your own chocolate. You can easily grate it yourself in a food processor, or with a hand grater. It doesn't have to be fancy.

Whip two Cups Whipping Cream Until Stiff

You want the whipped cream to stand up in peaks and hold its shape when it is ready.

Gently Fold the Mixtures Together

When you are mixing the two together, try to keep as much air in the mixture as possible. You can use a spatula or a whisk to turn the mixture gently over and over until it is completely mixed.

Gently Spoon About one Third of the Mixture Into a Freezer Container

Spoon about one third of the mixture into your freezer container. Drizzle caramel over the mixture. Add another third of the mixture, more caramel drizzle then the last third of the mixture.

Slap the lid on and Throw it in the Freezer

Depending on how firm you want your ice cream, you will want to leave it in the freezer several hours or overnight. Wherever it is hot, the ice cream will start to melt very quickly once it hits the bowl.

      that, allow me tell you just what exactly did work. Your aouhtring is pretty powerful and that is possibly the reason why I am making an effort to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am not necessarily sure of how you appear to unite your points which in turn help to make your final result. For right now I shall yield to your position however hope in the near future you connect your dots better.
