For now, here's my recipe for super easy Chocolate Ice Cream.
Super Easy Chocolate Ice Cream
4 c. chocolate milk
1 4 serving size box of chocolate fudge pudding mix
Mix pudding mix with the milk. Yes it will be runny. It's supposed to be. I know what it says on the box, just ignore it and trust me.
Start up your 1.5 quart ice cream maker. Pour the mix in the top. Let it run for about 15 minutes. Turn it off and enjoy chocolatey fudgey ice cream goodness.
Use regular milk and any flavor of pudding mix you want. Pistachio ice cream, anyone?
These ice cream makers have a different kind of dasher, so feel free to add chopped fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, crumbled cookies, or whatever you want as you mix the ice cream.
