No Churn Hot Chocolate Ice Cream

OMG. You guys. This no churn hot chocolate ice cream is everything. Everything.

And I’m not just saying that because I am currently in my own personal version of Saturday night heaven. The toddler is asleep right now. The husband is cooking dinner. And me? Well, I’m on the couch with my laptop writing this post about ice cream, which is my most favorite food in the world, while I watch a Hallmark Christmas movie on tv. It’s the perfect end to my Christmas in July mini series here.

Yeah. All you people without kids, this party is where it’s headed. Ok, maybe your choice of Saturday night tv would be different, but I am happy as a clam right now. The only thing that would make me happier is more of this no churn hot chocolate ice cream in my mouth right now. We all tried it this morning for breakfast dessert and agreed it is so good. (Sidebar: can we also all agree that breakfast dessert should be a thing that is required regularly?)

This no churn hot chocolate ice cream is super creamy and rich. It almost has more of a custard or gelato texture. Smoother than regular ice cream. Maybe a little richer too. And, oh did I mention? So creamy.

I know, I know. Who wants to make ice cream when you can buy it in the store? Well, you do (or you should), and I’ll tell you why. It’s reallllllllly easy. I made this ice cream at like 5:45 am. BEFORE I HAD COFFEE. And if you are following along with me on facebook, have read a couple of my posts, or just have a 2 year old too, you know that coffee is essential before I do anything that requires thought and effort. Especially that early in the morning. You just throw all the ingredients in a bowl, mix it together with an electric mixer, and freeze.

But the real reason you want to make ice cream at home? It gives you total freedom. You can make any flavor your little heart desires. You don’t have to worry that the grocery store won’t carry a certain flavor. Like hot chocolate ice cream in July. You can find it in December, but it’s a lot harder now. And that’s silly. Frozen hot chocolate treats like this frozen hot chocolate ice cream or these frozen hot chocolate floats are seriously where it’s at when you are craving a little Christmas spirit in July.
