Nutella Ice Cream

The Nutella bug bit again. I just couldn't seem to help myself last week after the biscotti cookies came out so good, I had to see what else Nutella would make delicious. The opportunity came up the next day when our bottom feeder fish, Corey took his last swim and had a burial at sea. My kids were distraught. So while they were at school, I made homemade ice cream and decided to add Nutella, one of their favorite sweets. The smiles on the kids' faces was priceless. A perfect tribute to Corey.

Nutella Ice Cream

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup half and half
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
dash of salt
1/2 cup Nutella

In a medium bowl, combine milk, sugar, and salt. Stir with a wire whisk until dissolved.

Put Nutella in a small bowl and place in microwave for 10 to 15 seconds, or until soft but not melted. Add 1/4 cup of the half and half to Nutella and place back into the microwave. Heat another 10 to 15 seconds until warm but not hot. Whisk together until blended (may have some tiny pieces of chocolate). Add slowly to milk and sugar blend.

Stir in remaining half and half, heavy whipping cream, and vanilla. Pour into ice cream maker and follow manufacturer's instructions.

Makes 1 quart.
