Could there be anything better? I doubt I have to sell this one to you – if you like Nutella and ice cream, well, there isn’t much else to say, is there?
Nutella is God’s way of letting you know there is a heaven! It’s a chocolate hazelnut spread (for breads, or just about anything else) that is truly divine. Go, run, to the store and buy some if you haven’t tried it.
When I saw the recipe on Sugarlaws, I knew I absolutely had to make it. I’m a Nutella-holic.
Nutella Ice Cream with Roasted Almonds
(inspired from Sugarlaws’ Nutella Ice Cream)
1/3 cup Nutella
1/2 cup Cream (I used regular cream, but use heavy cream if you have it)
1/3 cup Sugar
1 cup Milk
1 tbsp Vodka (alcohol keeps ice cream soft. You could leave it out if you want)
1/2 cup Toasted and Slivered Almonds
Mix together all the ingredients except for the almonds. Beat well. Pour into a plastic container (use a shallow container if making by hand). Add the almonds and mix to combine. Close and put it in the freezer. If you have an ice cream machine, follow the instructions.
If not, remove the container every 1 1/2 – 2 hours and churn the ice cream completely. Make sure you get all the frozen parts on the sides of the container. Initially a hand blender would work very well. Repeat the churning about 3-4 times, until ice cream is completely set.
Enjoy. This is truly one of the best ice creams I’ve ever had.
