Nutella Ice Cream

I want you to know that I am both very, very sorry and very, very NOT sorry about this.

I've made dreams come true. And it hardly takes any time at all!

So, yes, it's true - I made Nutella Ice Cream. And it is so, so simple. More than that, though, it is delicious. The ingredient list is short, which allows that wonderful chocolate hazelnut spread we all know and love to shine through.

This is a "simple" ice cream, which is made up of a base of just milk and heavy cream - no need to temper egg yolks or create any kind of custard. This recipe is a complete riff off my wildly popular and just as mouth-watering peanut butter ice cream, replacing the peanut butter with Nutella.

Look, there are no two ways around this: if you love Nutella and if you love ice cream, you are going to flip head over heels (over and over and over) when you lay your mouth on this. Part of me didn't even want to try making this at the risk that it would be this good. Then I's summer. We're hot. We want ice cream. Why deny ourselves?!

In addition to Nutella, sugar, milk, vanilla extract and heavy cream, you will need an ice cream maker before this magic can be in your life. There are lots of options out there, but I haven't had any trouble with this Cuisinart model. It's not a terribly large gadget and well worth it for homemade ice cream (in my humble opinion!)

Enough talking...we're making NUTELLA ICE CREAM!

Here's what you need for Nutella Ice Cream* (Print Recipe!)

1 cup Nutella
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups heavy cream

Here's what you do

In a large bowl, beat the nutella and sugar together with a hand mixer until smooth. Add the milk and mix until combined. Stir in the vanilla, then slowly stream in the heavy cream with the mixer on low. Chill for an hour or up to overnight.

Churn in an ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions. I churned mine for about 25 minutes. Transfer to a freezer safe container and chill for at least 6 hours. At this point, it will be the perfect hard ice cream consistency. Enjoy!
