With the warm weather knocking at the door, I’m ready to start thinking about cool summer treats, especially ice cream.
Today I have an incredibly easy ice cream recipe for you – you don’t even need an ice cream maker, you won’t have to turn on the stove or even the microwave. The kitchen stays cool! This Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream recipe is all about keeping it simple, easy and delicious. You will be amazed how quickly this comes together. I always remember my parents making homemade ice cream in the summer, but it always seemed to be a big day long process, with a noisy ice cream maker and bags of rock salt. For years I didn’t venture into making my own ice cream, thinking back on how complicated it seemed. The good news is that it doesn’t have to be complicated at all.
This recipe is from the folks at Kraft, and it comes together with just a few ingredients, including JELL-O Pudding, COOL WHIP, JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, BAKER’S Chocolate, milk and some fresh fruit. It’s a perfect summer dessert that is great for all of the bar-b-ques and summer parties that the next few months will bring.
The chocolate ice cream base comes together with your milk, JELL-O Pudding and COOL WHIP.
One of the things I love about this recipe, in addition to how simple it is, is the combo of marshmallows and chocolate chunks, I’ve always loved ice cream flavors that bring together a variety of textures and tastes, and this does that wonderfully.
After making your ice cream base, you stir in your chocolate chunks and marshmallows, then into a freezer safe container it goes to chill for at least four hours.
After a few hours you have a delicious ice cream that’s ready to be made into Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream Sundaes.
Top with some fresh fruit such as strawberries, raspberries or even blueberries, and you are ready to enjoy! This is perfect for a Memorial Day or Fourth Of July party or cookout.
