I'm sorry to inform you, but we nearly missed National Ice Cream Month. Here it is, the last few days of July and I just discovered that we should have all been honoring my favorite dairy product for weeks now.
To make amends, I'll share a link to my favorite home-made ice cream recipe: Chocolate-Hazelnut Gelato. I omit the sprinkling of hazelnuts on top, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly.
Don't be scared off by the inclusion of Nutella in this recipe. I REALLY dislike Nutella (the smell and the taste) but once it's been frozen into ice cream form, I can only taste its creamy chocolate goodness. Oh, and if you're not sure where to find Nutella in your store, ours is located on the peanut butter and jelly aisle.
