I am still alive.
I picked up another job as a nurse in the birth center at the other hospital near me... So I've been doing double time right now.
And I've been orienting... and working a lot of hours. My kids are starved of attention, I'm exhausted and I've hardly been cooking... And it hasn't been new recipes. Hence, my absence from this blog.
I apologize, but I'm back... at least for now!
But... I have a great recipe to share with you today!
In honor of World Nutella Day (did you know there was such a thing? Me neither!), I have a great recipe for Nutella Ice Cream.This particular recipe can be ANY kind of ice cream you want... And what's even better about this recipe???
You don't have to have an ice cream maker or rock salt to make it! Crazy huh? It is still creamy and delicious and you will love it!
Here's what you need:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (14 oz) Sweetened condensed milk
3 Tbsp. butter, melted
And then whatever you want to add to your ice cream.
In my case... 1/2 cup Nutella
First, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks in a large bowl.
Whisk the sweetened condensed milk, butter and Nutella (or whatever you're adding) in a large bowl.
Fold in whipped cream.
Pour into a 2 quart container and cover. Freeze for at least 6 hours or until firm. Store in freezer.
Enjoy... I ate mine in these little ramekins... and the portion was perfect!Want some other ideas for variations on this ice cream??
How about adding 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/2 tsp. vanilla for Cinnamon Bun Ice Cream? Sounds good, doesn't it?
How about cookie dough chunks for cookie dough ice cream? My favorite!
How about crushed oreos and some mint extract ( or just use Mint Oreos...) for Grasshopper Ice Cream! Can I have another favorite? I think I will be making this next...
The possibilities are limitless!!! All without the mess of rock salt and the hassle of the ice cream maker!
