Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

The holidays are officially in full swing! I am so excited for cookie making, ice skating, gingerbread house building, present wrapping and everything more there is to come in the next few weeks! It's the most wonderful time of the year! One staple food there is around the holidays is a nice cup of hot chocolate. I absolutely love hot chocolate! My favorite kind is the Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate or French Vanilla Hot Chocolate! There are so many fun ways to make and use hot chocolate and cooking. At some places, you can order a frozen hot chocolate or you can make brownies using hot chocolate mix. Something new and fun I wanted to try was making hot chocolate ice cream!

My hot chocolate ice cream isn't made like traditional ice cream. You don't add all of the mix to a bag, then double bag it with salt and ice cubes. Although that is fun, this recipe takes a lot less work than that. It is simply a matter of folding in ingredients and letting it freeze. It creates almost a custard like ice cream rather than a packed ice cream. It is very good! Also with the recipe, there is a lot of potential for variation to try out! I am excited to try to mix in candy canes and peppermint extract, salted caramel drizzles, or even marshmallows and nuts for a rocky road kind of feel! The recipe I am sharing with you today, tastes like a traditional cup of Stephen's hot chocolate with marshmallows. Have fun with this one and ENJOY!

Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

3 cups heavy or whipping cream
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup Stephen's hot chocolate milk chocolate mix
1/2 cup mini marshmallows

Start by beating the cream until they reach stiff peaks. Next,
using a flexible spatula, fold in sweetened condensed milk. Don't over mix it in. Then add in the hot chocolate mix (add as much as you'd like for enough flavor). Finish with folding in the marshmallows. Pour into two 9x5 bread pans. Let freeze for 5+ hours. Enjoy!
