Vanilla ice cream mixed with chunks of Aero chocolate and cookies creates the perfect sugar high.
Looked up a vanilla ice cream recipe and found this Martha Stewart recipe which sounded much easier/ less time consuming than many others. This recipe makes about 1 quart of ice cream.
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup milk
- 8 mini aero bars, chopped
- ~ 10 chocolate chip cookies, crushed
1) In a large bowl, whisk together all ingredients. Transfer to an ice-cream maker, and freeze following manufacturer’s instructions. Store in an airtight container and freeze for a few hours before eating.
Unlike other ice cream recipes that call for egg yolks, which are used to produce a richer and more custard-ish ice cream base, this recipe didn’t. Four basic ingredients, plus toppings of your choice – took me 5 minutes to prepare the base and a half hour later, I had a quart of Aero Cookie Ice Cream.
C loves aero chocolate bars, so it wasn’t hard to decide what toppings to add into our vanilla ice cream. We also had an open, half-eaten box of chocolate chip cookies, so those obviously had to go in too.
Verdict: This homemade Aero Cookie Ice Cream turned out delicious for only 5 minutes of prep! Everyone loved it. It’s a great option for a quick and easy last minute dessert (assuming that you have a frozen and ready-to-go ice cream can). Also strong>loved the fact that this recipe didn’t use many dishes (compared to other recipes which require cooking the egg yolks).
There was a pile of reallyyyy ripe bananas in the kitchen… thinking maybe Banana Nutella (possibly cookie) Ice Cream for next time?…. drool…
