Hot Chocolate Mix Ice Cream - A Guest Post by MiMi


     We host Pops' receptionists and their husbands each year for a Christmas celebration.  They take such good care of things at the office and we appreciate them so much.  I like to come up with an extra special meal for their Christmas party.  This year, I decided to make one of my favorite meals, turkey casserole.  When you have such a good dinner it seems like you should serve a special dessert to go with it.  None of them are big sweet eaters and I knew that they would be full from dinner so I decided on ice cream and cookies.  When deciding on flavors for dessert I was still quite excited about the hot chocolate mix and white hot chocolate mix that we made for hot chocolate week. I chose to make this hot chocolate mix ice cream and white hot chocolate mix cookies.  You can only imagine how thrilled I was when the one husband who never takes dessert saw what I was serving and wanted some.



Hot Chocolate Mix Ice Cream

Ingredients:

3 cups heavy cream
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mini marshmallows

  1. Using a whisk or an immersion blender, mix the first five ingredients together until well blended.  Do not over mix.
  2. Place this mixture into the bowl of your ice cream freezer (MiMi still loves the Kitchenaid attachment) and process as recommended.
  3. When the mixture is done churning, remove from the bowl of your ice cream freezer and fold in the miniature marshmallows. 
  4. Store in a freezer safe container.  Remove from the freezer about five minutes before you're ready to serve to let it soften just a little bit. Serve.

  2. This sounds utterly delicious - I'd do anything for ice cream, but, unlike your husband, I eat any sweets and desserts, too ... Thank you for bringing this along to our very festive Fiesta Friday gathering!

    1. I don't make ice cream mostly because I can't be trusted with a whole batch to myself. Plus MiMi does such a great job. If she ever stops, I'll have to start doing it myself. In the meantime I let her be in charge of making fun ice cream flavors. This one was particularly good!

  4. I don't care how cold it is outside I can always eat ice cream. This reminds me of the famous frozen hot chocolate at Serendipity in NYC. Wonderful!! Thanks so much for bringing this treat to the party.
