Well, it's only Thursday but after making this ice cream, I was just about to end ice cream week with it. It is the most decadent ice cream, so delicious, so creamy, so over the top good, that I didn't want to make anymore. Of course, that only lasted until the Nutella Ice Cream was gone, and then I was off and running to the perfect happy hour ice cream with which we will end the week tomorrow!
When I first planned ice cream week, I wanted to include a gelato that would be a nod to other countries and also mix things up a little. When I found Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato, I knew I found a winning combo--John absolutely loves Nutella! Then, I read the instructions; and I kept reading the ingredient list, and the instructions. There are very few ice cream recipes that I will make with a frozen custard base. To me, it's unnecessary, and time consuming. It's also a tricky process, and we all know that I can't really follow recipes too well. A nice, simple ice cream recipe always seems best.
I thought about classifying this as a dorm room dinner for the few ingredients; every dorm room has to have an ice cream party now and again, right? John said it would be "misleading" because I never have ice cream for dinner (oh, I don't? News to me). What he didn't say though, was I got up the morning after we made this (we had to let it set in the freezer), and stuck my spoon in it for a little taste test!!! When he went to scoop some out for us that night, he just started laughing. I couldn't help it! I was curious.
I can't rave enough about this ice cream. So, I will stop raving, start eating, and let you enjoy it yourself! Can't wait to show you tomorrow's post.
Until the next time my oven is on...
