Nutella Ice Cream.

I've found my favorite homemade ice cream base.  This stuff is sooooo good.  This past summer my mom asked my husband if he would make her some ice cream she saw on Sugar Plum's Blog...of course he agreed and since then we've made this a few more times and enjoy it more and more each time!  Sugar Plum called it gelato, but we aren't that fancy here, so we'll stick to ice cream!

Nutella Ice Cream.
(Recipe Adapted from Sugar Plum)
4 cups half & half
3/4 cup sugar
3 tablespoons corn starch
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
dash of salt
1/2 cup rice krispies
1/2 cup nutella
dash of salt

Place half & half and sugar in a medium sauce pan. Whisk until dissolved.  Add corn starch, vanilla, and a dash of salt.  Bring to a boil - while whisking frequently.  Remove from heat, allow to cool, and refrigerate overnight or for several hours.  Place cold mixture into your ice cream maker and follow machine's direction.  While ice cream is processing, mix together rice krispies, nutella, and a dash of salt.  Fold nutella mixture into ice cream.  Freeze until desired consistency and enjoy!!

As I said, this is easily our favorite base.  I foresee adding chunks of Twix candy bar and swirling caramel into the base in the very near future!!
