Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

Cayenne Pepper in chocolate ice cream?
What do you think?  Ever tried it before?
It's good.  Really good.

Now, if you ask the children, they will tell

you that their favourite chocolate ice cream is not this one.
But, I like it.  And, they eat it.  So, I'm not sure what to think.
Don't you think the proof is in the eating?  I do.  :)

This ice cream is of the no cook variety
and it churns up nicely.
If you serve it right away, it will be soft serve.
If you pop it into the deep freeze for a few hours,
it will harden up and be more scoop-able.  

Either way, it's yummy.

I used whole milk in this recipe.
When I made it, I didn't have almond extract in the house ~
So, I mixed it up was very good.
Next time, I plan to have the extract on hand.
I also ventured slowly into the *hot* side of things and 
only used the smaller amount of cayenne ~
Next time, I will go with the full 1/2 tsp.

I think the cinnamon flavour came through a bit overpowering

since I used the smaller amount of the cayenne and none of the extract.
Next time, I will use the full amounts of everything.

Intrigued?  Ready to give it a try?  Click here!  

**Update ~ Since writing this post I made it again

with the extract and the larger amount of cayenne.
The verdict?  I think it's much better with the extract,
but, the cayenne was a bit overpowering.
I suppose this means I will have to make it one more time
with all the ingredients *corrected*, don't you think?
What a shame.  ;-)

Many Blessings,

I'm not sure if I'd like cayenne pepper in my ice cream. Maybe cinnamon? I'm gonna eat some rocky road ice cream in a few minutes. What timing to read this post! LOL! Hugs!

Becky ~ Mmmm...I like Rocky Road ice cream. Actually, I don't think I've ever had an ice cream I didn't like. :) The cinnamon and cayenne balance each other out in this recipe...might you give it a try?

Dianna ~ I do hope you like it! I would begin with the 1/4 tsp of cayenne to begin with. Enjoy! :)

Jenn ~ You gonna give it a try? Come on over and I will share. :)

Stephanie ~ I don't think you would notice it if you weren't told it was in there...give it a try! I think you'll be surprised how good it is. :)

Many Blessings,
