Food on Fridays: Dreamy Chocolate Ice Cream

fof(smaller button below)

Here at the Food on Fridays carnival, any post remotely related to food is welcome—though we love to try new dishes, your post doesn’t have to be a recipe. If you want to link up a photo of your son’s lop-sided birthday cake, that’s great…not that I know anything about lop-sided birthday cakes or anything. Anyway, my point is that posts like that are as welcome as menus and recipes.When your Food on Fridays contribution is ready, just grab the broccoli button (the big one above or smaller option at the bottom) to paste at the top of your post. It ties us together visually.Then plug your name and link into Linky Tools.

Food on Fridays with Ann

I called for help, and several of you responded with ice cream recipes capable of making a grown man cry!My brother offered to make vanilla ice cream for my son’s birthday party, so I decided to make chocolate, using Lisa’s recipe from Extraordinary Life.Look how simple it is to make:Chocolate Ice Cream2 cups Heavy Cream1 cup Milk2/3 cup Sugar1 teaspoon Vanilla1/2 cup Cocoa PowderI was a little nervous. I’d never before operated an ice cream maker, but my brother walked us through it.Basically we threw all the ingredients in a bowl, mixed it up and poured it into the ice cream maker. The guys manhandled the bags of ice and rock salt.We didn’t keep track of the time, but I think ours whirred for at least an hour before slowing down. My brother’s machine stopped earlier.Next time I make it, I’ll double the recipe. You can see in the next photo that it made a modest amount, though plenty for our gathering.Our chocolate firmed up much more than my brother’s vanilla, but he made a big amount. Rich and delicious, the vanilla remained the consistency of soft-serve ice cream.Both were outstanding, but if I were going to make ice cream for a party, I’d make the chocolate. Because, you see, I asked for a recipe that would make a grown man cry.But as it turned out, I ended up being the one to swipe away a tear or two.Homemade chocolate ice cream.Dreamy.

    1. That looks absolutely delicious! I could have used some of that earlier tonight….oh, who am I kidding? I could use some of that now! Thanks for hosting!

    2. Good for you! That ice cream looks delicious!!

    3. Hi Ann! I think that ice cream might just have made me swipe away a tear or two too – it looks wonderful!! This week I’ve linked a post about how small changes in what you buy, eat and cook can make a big difference to the environment, your health and your pocketbook. Have a great weekend!

    4. I would choose chocolate, too! I really need to test out my ice cream attachment for my kitchen aid. I think I’ll pop it in the freezer today!

    5. That ice cream looks delicious, I really need to get an ice cream maker! Thanks for hosting!

    6. Oh hey, thanks for the link love. Try making this ice cream and put the finished product in a small spring form pan and freeze. Add a crunchy fudge coated middle and freeze again while you make another batch of ice cream. Top with remaining ice cream and freeze to complete the cake. Cover with cool whip as frosting. Its only the best darn ice cream cake EVER!!!

        Oh. My. Stars.

        Just reading this makes me shake a little with excitement at the thought of such a concoction!

        Could be a most amazing birthday treat for the next birthday person in our family….thanks so much for the recommendation!

    7. Finally just made this tonight. Yummy! I only had special dark cocoa so it came out darker than yours, but it was soooo good! Super creamy and smooth. Big hit with my son as he got to help pour everything into the machine and watch it go!
