Chocolate Cocoa Nib Ice Cream
Did you all know that Brandy of Nutmeg Nanny is throwing an ice cream social on her blog? All ice cream for two weeks! (She’s not a crazy lady like me–two weeks was a smart choice compared to my whole month of pancakes.)
When she asked me to participate, I immediately said yes. Partly because I’m preggers and eat a lot of ice cream. Mostly because I love Brandy and her blog.
My next thought? “Oh crap, I’ve never made ice cream!”
I put on my best can-do attitude and pulled the ice cream maker out of the closet and got to brainstorming about recipes. I remembered that I had a pantry full of beautiful Scharffen Berger chocolate that was just screaming to be included in a decadent batch of ice cream.
This led me to Chocolate Cocoa Nib ice cream. It is creamy, rich, and has a nice crunch from the cocoa nibs. It’s also an egg-free recipe! I decided to start easy for my first ice cream experience. It is still a bit labor-intensive but so, so worth it.
*Sharffen Berger didn’t pay me to name drop. It’s good stuff.
