I picked up The Ice Cream Bible from the library on a whim.  I had gone to the library (twice in one day) to pick up the Janet Evanovich book I had reserved and picked up this cookbook and another.  I had them both for the 3 week checkout period was up and never even cracked them open!  So I renewed them.  And finally got around to making some ice cream.

I let hubby pick which flavor to make and he chose Chocolate Hazelnut.  AKA Nutella ice cream.  I had some Justin’s Hazelnut Butter on hand, but I thought the Nutella would made better (smoother) ice cream.

The good news is this recipe does not contain raw eggs, like Peanut Butter Chip ice cream does.  The bad news is it’s not calorie free.  I really think that frozen foods shouldn’t contain calories!  Particularly ice cream.  I love ice cream.

Poor hubby, he was ready for ice cream, but chill time was needed (for the ice cream, not for me).  It looked like a big mug of hot cocoa.  I totally wanted to chug it!  The only thing that kept me from doing so was knowing I would have ice cream in the end.

Don’t you just want to dig in?  I did.  And I did.  It’s very soft serve-like at first, so I took it out in the snow to firm up.

Not really.  I didn’t want snow to water down my ice cream.  My smooth, creamy, chocolatey, hazelnutty ice cream.  Perfect for a hot, summer cold, snowy day.

    • It was soooo cold the day I made it, but it didn’t stop me from digging in. I was shivering when I was done and my hubby just laughed at me. But it is delicious! And I can’t not eat whatever I make on the day I make it. 😉

  1. This looks one of the simpler ice cream recipes you’ve posted on here. I think I will have to try this one! It’s been forever since I’ve used the ice cream maker. I took out the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook last week but haven’t made anything yet. That book is complicated. I am going to need some serious toddler free time. I love looking through cookbooks. I picked up a ton of new ones at last years library book sale but haven’t made much from them either. I do not know where you find the time. You must not sleep.

    • It is probably the easiest ice cream I’ve made. And it was good!! I tend to hesitate at complicated recipes. I definitely want to go to the library book sale this year, if only to buy cookbooks. I have plenty more room on my bookshelves for cookbooks. And you’re right, I don’t sleep, but not because I’m busy making ice cream. I’m busy being milked!!!
