My New Love ♥ Nutella Ice Cream

WOW WOW WOW...I have gone straight to Heaven...all because of a little jar of chocolate hazelnut spread.

This is honestly one of my all time favorite ice creams, and it's homemade! Want the recipe??

Nutella Ice Cream

Ingredients:
1 small jar Nutella (found next to Peanut Butter in grocery store)
3/4 c. granulated sugar
1 1/4 WHOLE milk, not 2%, not 1% and certainly not Skim!
2 c. Heavy whipping cream (not half and half)
1 1/2 t. vanilla extract


Start by placing the Nutella and sugar in your stand mixer (if you don't have one I'm sure a hand mixer will work but pretty certain the stand mixer is best!) and combine.



After mixed well, add in the milk, SLOWLY and a little at a time....to avoid wearing ALL of it...you'll probably still wear some of it. :)
Mix on LOW speed until sugar is dissolved; about 2 minutes.


Stir in heavy cream and vanilla and mix well.


Pour into your ice cream maker and churn for 25-35 minutes.


The ice cream will be "soft serve" consistency and is fine to eat now (though I find it hard to NOT eat a few spoonfuls at this point). Put into freezer safe containers and finish in the freezer.


*Drizzle with additional Nutella if you like before sticking into the freezer.


*Note, I had a little Nutella left in another jar and thought I would make a "sauce" to drizzle into the ice cream just before it was finished. Well, it wouldn't melt on the stove top...it actually started to seize up. So, I placed it into a microwave safe glass dish and added some of the whole milk I had left (I actually just purchased one of those single servings like you find at a convenient store as we don't drink the "red cap"!). Place into microwave and heat for about 30 seconds and then carefully stir it. It WILL BE HOT. Microwave for another 20-30 seconds if not completely "saucy".

Enjoy! I know I did!

Way to stick your head in the mixing bowl. Glad you remembered not to do that when the beaters were on! ;-) Love you, Ice Cream Head!!
