Chocolate Ice Cream

Enjoy a fast and easy rich chocolate ice cream without using an ice cream machine!!

Nothing is better on a hot summer day than a special treat of ice cream.  When we were kids, there was an ice cream truck that drove through the neighbourhood in the summer months and we all waited patiently for that special time of the day when you knew the truck was coming as it was preceded with that great carnival type music.
  I know that the ice cream truck is pretty much a thing of the past, but there are many ice cream shops ready to scoop you out your favourite flavour.

When we go out for a drive on the weekend or are out and about, stopping for a good old fashioned ice cream cone is a welcome treat.  The flavour choices are many but I always seem to lean toward a cone filled with rich chocolate ice cream.

I had to share with you another great ice cream of the no churn variety. Just three ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep time, you can have this in the freezer in the morning and be ready to scoop and enjoy for dinner!!

Look at this creamy chocolate scoopable deliciousness!!

This creamy delight is delicious as is but  you can rev up the chocolate level even more by adding in chopped chocolate from a plain candy bar or with mini chocolate chips.

Whether you enjoy your ice cream in a cone or like to enjoy the pure creaminess in a bowl, it certainly makes a great finish to dinner.  We have been enjoying a small bowl every night after dinner and it is soooo yummy!! Through the day, I am so tempted to pull out the container and have just a little bite.  It's taking all of my will power to try and forget that it's in there and wait till dinnertime.
