Nutella Ice Cream
Ice cream and Nutella, there’s nothing better, right?

Wrong. There’s Nutella Ice Cream, and this recipe for making it at home is so easy and tasty that you’d be silly not to join me in my Nutella brain freezes.

When Brian and I were in Princeton for the night a couple of weekends back, we made a point of stopping in The Bent Spoon for their famous artisan ice cream. We’d been warned about the permanent line out the door, but it took just one taste of their Lavender Mascarpone for us to understand the hype, which as it turns out isn’t hype at all. Our favorite was the Nutella Ice Cream and I’ve wanted to recreate it ever since and recreate it I did. No one’s lining up outside my apartment just yet, but I will say that my version comes pretty close. Here’s how I made it.

Halfway Homemade Firecracker Popsicles
My sincerest apologies for not publishing my usual Monday post sooner. It’s just been one of those days, you know? The same goes for last night thanks to a New York to DC drive that took twice as long as it should have. And to prove that I’m not a complete slacker and work a full-time job that can be quite demanding, here’s the video evidence.  

Anyway, with that explanation out of the way, I want to share a stupidly easy halfway homemade recipe for Firecracker popsicles. You know the kind. Red white and blue and delicious all over. As you can see, these popsicles are on the monochromatic side, but the all-natural ingredients and no-fuss process more than make up for the lacking blue pigment.

Pumpkin Ice Cream

Timing has never been my forte. I’m perpetually five minutes behind. My coworkers, boyfriend and DVR can all attest to that. So in true me fashion, I’m posting an ice cream recipe post-September equinox.

To make my delay a little less egregious, I whipped up this more topical recipe for pumpkin pie ice cream. It really does taste like pumpkin pie, and makes for a pretty nice segue from summer to fall. Sometimes I’m really good at making transitions. Like in this old clip from work

Recipe and plenty more pictures after the jump.

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

July is National Ice Cream Month. It is not July anymore. Still, I thought I’d share this throwback* ice cream post before I let August slip out from under me too. Better to be one month late than two, right? 

I’m a lover of all ice cream flavors, but mint chocolate chip is my absolute favorite. I love that it’s simple, crunchy from the chocolate and the mint flavor is that much more refreshing because it’s cold.

I loved making my own and hope you do too. Recipe after the jump.

Glorious Fudgesicles

I am so excited about these fudgesicles that I don’t even know where to begin. I suppose we can start with how they were my favorite childhood treat. I love them as an adult too, but for years my summers have been incomplete because my local Safeway doesn’t carry “The Original Brand Fudgsicle” (that’s DC living for you), and the grocery store by Brian only offers the fat-free or no-sugar-added varieties. Harris Teeter, why do you even bother?

So as soon as I got this popsicle mold, I set out to make my own and am happy to report that my life is now better because of it.

I don’t typically post twice a day, but I just had to share. You won’t believe how easy it is to make your own. Recipe after the jump.
