Nutella Ice Cream

I love Nutella. I love ice cream. Why I haven’t put these two together earlier, I don’t know. But its one of the most ingenious ideas I’d ever heard of.

I stumbled upon this recipe on the blog: Dinner with Julie. I’d link to the recipe directly, but my link is appearing to be broken.

It suggested using 1 cup Nutella and 2 cups milk or half and half or whipping cream. I can’t remember exactly. Instead of measuring properly I decided to use the whole jar of nutella. First warm it up a few seconds in the mircowave. I suppose you could use a sauce pan over the oven, but that’s just something else to clean. Once its softened a bit stir it in with the milk. Make sure you use a big bowl because I didn’t use a big enough bowl to allow for whisking. The idea is to make it smooth. Then pour into your ice cream maker and make as directed.

Since I was unsure of how much it would make and I used more Nutella than the original recipe called for my batch turned our really rich and really small. It made just over a pint of ice cream. Next time I will still use the whole jar, but probably do 3 cups milk.
