I’m sitting here staring at the freezer whilst trying desperately not to sprint over there and shovel down the last of the ice cream. Nutella ice cream. Homemade Nutella ice cream.
You can make some for yourself too! You only need five things: Nutella, milk, half-and-half, sugar, and some serious willpower against temptation.
Grab your blender and plop 1/3 of a cup of delicious chocolatey nutty goodness in it. Once all of it is in there you can go ahead and lick the measuring cup. It’s okay. No one’s looking. Now pour in 1/3 of a cup half-and-half, one cup of whole milk, and 1/2 cup sugar. Blend away until completely homogeneous then pour the mixture into a stainless steel or glass bowl.
Now, if you are a lucky duck and you have an fancy machine, go on and finish the ice cream according to the manufacturers directions. But if you don’t have an ice cream maker, don’t worry your pretty little head! All you really need is that bowl you’re holding. Just take it over to the freezer and pop it in. Close the door. Walk away. As the day goes on, keep paying visits to your bowl of deliciousness and give it a good whisk with a fork each time. Over a few hours you’ll watch the liquid turn to slush, then to sort of a soft-serve texture, and then finally to scoop-able magnificence!
Easy, ain’t it?
So what are you waiting for? Go make yourself a bowl!
