Homemade Ice Cream

August 23, 2009

What better to do on a summer night than make your own ice cream?  My friend Meg and I decided to have an adventure, and attempt it.  However, we ran into a few obstacles along the way…

First, we had to crush the ice to use in the ice cream maker:

Yeah… next time, we’re buying a bag of crushed ice instead!  Ice flew everywhere, and melted all over.  There was a nice pool of freezing water covering the counters and the ground.  But we cleaned up, really!

As for the actual ice cream, everything went pretty well.  We chopped our chocolate, made our delicious sauce, and prepped our dish.

And here it is, our wonderful creation!  Double chocolate cheesecake ice cream with raspberry chocolate sauce.  Well worth the work.  Mmmmm.
