Nutella Ice Cream


No SMS again this week. Sorry, but we have started renovating our kitchen and cooking anything more than the basics has become too much of a challenge! Instead, I am posting the recipe for one of my favorite treats of all time - Nutella Ice Cream!

I found the link to this recipe on David Lebovitz's blog and this is how discovered Clotilde's fantastic blog Chocolate & Zucchini. I hesitate to even call this a recipe because it only contains two ingredients; evaporated milk and Nutella. Only 2! I'm sure that ice cream purists wouldn't consider it 'ice cream' either but if it walks like a duck and talks like a duck... This is the easiest, most delicious ice cream ever. Dangerously easy. Do not make this thinking you will be able to eat a small amount and then give it away!

After making this several times over the past year or so, I decided to add some extras to this. I am totally into ice cream that is studded with a variety of add-ins to give additional flavor and texture. Channeling Ben and Jerry, I addeded coarsely chopped toasted hazelnuts and semi-sweet Ghiradelli chocolate and took this already decadent treat to another level. Like skyrockets in flight level. The Nutella Ice Cream is creamy, almost mousse-like in texture and the crunch of the hazelnuts and chocolate added the perfect counterbalance of textures. So good!

Nutella Ice Cream
adapated from Chocolate & Zucchini

1 1/2 cups Nutella
1 can evaporated milk (14 1/2 ounces)
1/3 cup hazelnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped (optional)
1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped (optional)

Whisk Nutella and evaporated milk together in a large bowl. Cover and chill. Whisk again, and add chilled mixture to ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's directions. If using, add nuts and chocolate to ice cream maker about a minute before ice cream is complete. Freeze until firm.
