A WINNER and a Chocolate Ice Cream Recipe!

YAY!! I love winners!!



And, Audra (Snowflake07) was randomly chosen as the winner of the Deni Ice Cream Maker from Cookware.com!

Congratulations!!!

Now, although Audra said that her favorite ice cream was a local flavor, Monkey Madness, and just may initiate her new ice cream maker trying to recreate that flavor at home, I've got to share a great chocolate ice cream recipe with you!


I got this recipe YEARS ago from Bettyinthekitchen (if you're out there!) when I frequented (then) BabyCenter's recipe board. Sandy's recipe has become our favorite homemade ice cream recipe!

It tastes like this, straight out of the ice cream maker in soft-serve state:


And when given a few extra hours in your freezer, I think it tastes like this:

Both ways, YUMMY!

It's actually a recipe for Rocky Road, but we don't add anything and prefer plain chocolate!

ROCKY ROAD ICE CREAM
makes about 1 quart

1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 cups heavy cream (I use half and half)
1 cup light cream (I use whole milk)
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
1 cup miniature marshmallows, snipped in half

In a medium saucepan over low heat, cook and stir condensed milk and cocoa until smooth and slightly thickened, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. Stir in heavy cream, light cream, and vanilla. Refrigerate until cold. (I usually let this chill overnight... ice cream mixture freezes best when it starts out already cold - Alton Brown tip)!

Pour mixture into the canister of an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. Stir in nuts and marshmallows.

*Sandy's note: use about 1/2 table cream and 1/2 low fat evaporated milk, or sub all evaporated skim milk for heavy cream*

Recommend: YES

Many thanks to Cookware.com for such a great giveaway and congratulations, again, to Audra!! I hope you enjoy your ice cream maker!!
