Nuts For Nutella

I don't want to ruin your Friday, but we totally missed World Nutella Day.

At least, I missed it. And if you knew about it and didn't tell me, we are in a fight.

But, our consolation prize is that there is now a whole web site of nutella recipes, perfect for delicious experimentation. We tried this nutella ice cream for a little dinner gathering this evening and it was a big hit.

The recipe:

1 cup nutella
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup whole milk
1 and 1/3 cup heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

Combine the nutella and sugar until smooth.
Add the milk.
Beat on low speed until smooth and the sugar is dissolved.
Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla.
Place in your ice cream maker and let it run 20-25 minutes.
Transfer to bowl and freeze overnight.

A few tips.

Definitely use a big, deep bowl because I started off with a sort of shallow, glass bowl and everything sprayed everywhere and made a gigantic mess.

Also, if you don't have any whole milk, don't sweat it. I only had skim milk and it came out just fine.

And, my batch didn't look very frozen at all even after being in the ice cream maker for about half and hour, but after a night in the freezer it was the perfect consistency. Soft enough to scoop right away without defrosting, but a tasty frozen treat, for sure.

Definitely worth a little weekend project, if you're looking for one of those.

Happy Friday!
