Two Great Chocolate Ice Creams!

Chocolate...what else could you want? 

Learning as I go..but I am discovering how easy it is to prepare ice creams!    As a kid, I remember it being a very big deal about the 4th of July.   And of course, we had the big wooden ice cream maker (photo courtesy Etsy) with the hand crank.   You needed to have lots of ice, Morton's Rock Salt and a strong arm.  We kids took turns because we knew that Mom's Vanilla Ice Cream recipe was worth all the work and time.  The first thirty minutes was OK...but towards the end...it was HARD work.     Then I remember after finishing...a yell from the kitchen window...."DON'T THROW THAT ICE ON THE GRASS".  We didn't know why but found out that the salt water killed the grass for the rest of the summer.   

Today, I am modifying the quantities and making smaller amounts.   It is so handy to have a Cuisinart 1.5 quart machine, I would suggest everyone get one...it is that easy.

Mixing Chocolate custard with Cream Cheese

This is another very good recipe we enjoy and you can see, it doesn't contain eggs, if you might be sensitive.

Mr. Bill,
While both recipes sound good I really can’t wait to try the second just for the experiment with and eggless recipe, plus it sounds really, really good, lol. Hoping Spring is keeping you guys company a little more regularly now. - G

YUM....... Let me know when you have it ready, and I'll stop by... ha ha ....

I grew up with those old wooden crank ice cream makers. We didn't make any 'fancy' ice creams though. We just had basic vanilla --or strawberry, chocolate or peach... Yum...

Stay SAFE during all of these storms.
