This ice cream came about because I had a few ingredients I needed to use up. I initially searched for nutella recipes, and this one came up. It was also about the end of the summer season, so I wanted another reason to make ice cream…even though I’ll probably be making ice cream well through the winter.
Most of the ice creams I’ve made have not required the use of just egg yolks, or even eggs for that matter. This was so simple and easy, and I had ice cream to eat within the hour. Of course, if you want firmer ice cream, refrigerate for a few hours before serving. Make this, you won’t regret it!
