Tips & Tricks

  • This ice cream recipe takes at least 8 hours to set. I usually allow it to set overnight.
  • Try adding different flavors of chocolate chips, such as dark or white chocolate!
  • You can also add extra nuts, such as chopped walnuts, hazelnuts, or pecans, to the mix.
  • Make sure that you whip the ice cream on high, as a slower speed will not produce the same result.
