A Summer Farewell

Today is officially the last day of summer. :( Fall is upon us and winter is just around the corner. To mourn the loss of my nice sunny weather days and to celebrate the oncoming apple, pumpkin, and all things warm and cozy craze I decided to share one last ice cream recipe of the season. (However, since it is still hot here in Tennessee, it will definitely not be my last batch of ice cream for the year.)


What type of chocolaty goodness in a bowl is this? Chocolate pudding ice cream!!! Making a batch of pudding and then pouring it all into your ice cream machine makes a thick and delicious treat. It's a chocolate lover's dream. Enjoy your last bit of summer!


Chocolate Pudding Ice Cream
1 ¼ cups cocoa powder
¾ cup cornstarch
1 ¾ cup sugar
½ tsp salt
8 cups milk

Mix together the cocoa powder, sugar, salt, and cornstarch. Pour in about a cup or two of the milk and whisk until there are no more lumps. Slowly add in the rest of the milk and whisk until everything is smooth. Pour into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 3 minute intervals, whisking between each one, until the mixture starts to bubble. Continue to microwave in 1 minute intervals, continuing to stir, until the pudding is thickened. Allow it to cool, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight. Using an ice cream maker (mine is from Cuisinart), pour half the pudding into the frozen ice cream maker’s attachment bowl. Let the machine run for 15 minutes. Repeat another time with the remaining pudding. Serve immediately for soft serve, or pour into a sealed container and freeze for 3 hours for normal ice cream. You may need to let it thaw on the counter for 10 minutes before scooping out and serving.
