I love ice cream yes I do, I love ice cream… how about you?
Ice cream is one of my go to desserts along with cookies, cupcakes, cake…..etc. No really I think it is my go to dessert. I love going to the self-service yogurt shops and load my cup with 2-3 different kinds of yogurt and then top it off with about 3 or more toppings. Yes, that can get expensive but my stomach is sure happy.
My favorite toppings include butterfinger, peanut butter cups, toffee and then a couple of pieces of fresh fruit to help me think it is more balanced.
Today I am going to let you know that this is by far the best and creamiest recipe for ice cream that I have ever made. In two days all we had left in our house was 1 pint. This ice cream did not last long at all and I’m already planning another trip to the store so I can make it again.
What’s your favorite flavor and topping?
