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
3 cups heavy cream
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup hot chocolate mix
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup mini marshmallows
- Using a whisk or an immersion blender, mix the first five ingredients together until well blended. Do not over mix.
- Place this mixture into the bowl of your ice cream freezer (MiMi still loves the Kitchenaid attachment) and process as recommended.
- When the mixture is done churning, remove from the bowl of your ice cream freezer and fold in the miniature marshmallows.
- 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.
