Cherry & Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

This ice cream is as good as it is pretty. I like to experiment with my ice cream maker trying out combinations. One summer a friend gave me a box of peaches. One of the recipes I experimented with was peach cobbler ice cream. Yum! I use a Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker. It’s simple and easy to use. The containers to store the ice cream I purchase from sweet bliss containers on Amazon.

Cherry & Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 cup bing cherries sliced in half
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla

Mix the whipping cream, milk vanilla and sugar in a bowl, add the cherries and chocolate. Pour the liquid into the ice cream freezer bowl and turn it on. Let it thicken which should take about 2o minutes. Scoop out into your ice cream container and let it freeze for two hours. If you cannot wait, you can eat it right away.

Makes 1 quart of ice cream
