I had every intention of walking around the corner to my local ice cream shop and getting myself a big scoop of chocolate ice cream. But then a few days ago during all this early June cold and rainy weather my kids discovered our ice cream maker in one of my cabinets. After I explained that it was not a drum and in fact could be used to make ice cream, we decided to do just that. I took a poll of what flavor we should make and chocolate was the overwhelming winner. I swear I did not plan it that way but it couldn’t have worked out better. I haven’t used that ice cream maker in years so I didn’t have a recipe handy. Keeping in mind who my trusty assistants were, I went to Pinterest and searched for “easy chocolate ice cream” and made the first one that popped up.
Making ice cream turned out to be a great rainy day activity to keep us busy. The recipe resulted in a great tasting ice cream but with only a so-so texture, so I’m no going to share it. Now I’m just forced to make some adjustments and try again. What a tragedy.
