Even though National Ice Cream Month was in July, it`s still summer, which means more ice cream consumption. At least for me!
I haven`t made coffee ice cream in forever. It`s one of my favorite go-to flavors when I visit ice cream shops. Of course coffee + toffee go well together, but I did that last time.
I`m not an avid coffee drinker. I only drink stuff like coffee milk or mocha frappuccino since I like the coffee flavor. It was hard to find a recipe that didn`t use coffee beans or grounds, but still yielded the strong coffee flavor I like. I think I totally found a winner with this one. Next time, I might even up the coffee. Although, this amount was perfect, I just love the strong coffee taste!
You know what`s as delicious as coffee ice cream? Coffee stracciatella ice cream. Think mini chocolate bits, randomly sprinkled throughout that wonderful coffee ice cream….yum galore. Adding melted chocolate while the ice cream was churning was my favorite part!
Also, honestly, stracciatella is a hard word to spell. Not gonna lie, I just copy and paste that word from Google. Spelling was never my strong suit. Eating, now, that I do an A+ job of. 🙂
You must, must, must try this fabulous recipe. Both my parents aren`t huge fans of ice cream, but they told me how much they like this recipe. They hardly ever comment/try my homemade ice cream! I swear they sometime steal a spoon or two before bed–as evidence by the spoon in the sink (after all the dishes have been done after dinner).
I ate all 3 scoops of this ice cream after I photographed it. It was just magically delicious. And much too
hard to resist!
I took out about 2 tablespoons of sugar. However, ¾ cup of sugar will work great.
