Nutella Ice Cream…with other tasty additions

10I have a decent sized kitchen. Square footage, it’s above average, I think. I also only have one wall of actual kitchen cabinets. We live in a loft. This means no doors (except on the bathroom of course) and one long never ending house. It’s cool and I love it, don’t get me wrong, that’s why we bought it. The only issue is that there is next to no storage space.

kitchen Once I get all the pots, pans, dishes and all kitchen/dining room linens away, there’s not a lot of room left for other stuff. Meaning, gadgets. I really have to keep my gadget collecting to a minimum. We just don’t have anywhere to put it, and I’m personally not a fan of too much stuff ON the counters. I’ve stashed some stuff in the garage, but I know my husband isn’t thrilled with me invading his space with cupcake pans and sprinkles.
I’ve wanted an ice cream maker for a loooong time. I discovered KitchenAid made an ice cream making attachment. This was an awesome discovery! I decided against it though. I thought it probably wasn’t a great idea to have the ability to make ice cream whenever I wanted.
Then I found this recipe……..
21You need neither an ice cream maker nor any fancy attachments. All you need is a whisk. For realsies. Ok, I used my mixer, but you honestly don’t need to if you don’t want. All you need is some elbow grease.
The original recipe tells you to freeze for six hours or until firm. Just let it sit overnight. I was anxious and took a scoop at about hour 6.5, yeah, it wasn’t fully set. Give it a good overnight freeze. That’s my recommendation. After a good long freeze it will be hardened, exactly like store bought ice cream.
23Ok, I have a confession to make. This is my first encounter with sweetened condensed milk. To be truly honest, the thought of it always gave my the heebie-jeebies. Please don’t tell Paula Deen. I know on numerous occasions she’s uttered the phrase, “I could eat this stuff straight from the can.” I think I just gagged a little. As it turns out though, the stuff isn’t too scary and when mixed with other awesomeness, you’ve got some delicious ice cream. 
This recipe yields some seriously super creamy, rich and luxurious ice cream. This is NOT a recipe for when you’re on a diet. I’m pretty sure that’s what makes it awesome though.
The base recipe is great, and leaves it open to add pretty much anything you want to it. I had Nutella, peanut butter chips and mini marshmallows, so that’s what I threw in. My wheels won’t stop turning, I keep thinking of yummy combinations!
Try new flavors and let me know how they turn out :)!

I love that you don't need an ice cream maker for this! Your kitchen is gorgeous but I can see why you would want more storage space.

Ice cream without the ice cream maker!? You are speaking my language! And Nutella? Does it get better than that!?

August 25, 2011 at 10:51 PM

Love this! Nutella makes my life. I once got Nutella gelato in Pisa, Italy, and it was full-on frozen Nutella. Nothing else! I had to laugh though. Who knew?

I don't have an ice cream maker so I love this recipe! Can't wait to try it!

August 27, 2011 at 10:41 AM

Such a great recipe! Although I have to say that as a New Yorker who has only ever had the tiniest of kitchens yours looks just luxurious to me... that being said, I never think it's a bad thing to keep gadgets to a minimum! Can't wait to make this.

August 28, 2011 at 5:42 AM

I think I have just about 1/2 c. of Nutella in the jar ... and a can of sweetened condensed milk ... hmmmmmmm!

I just made a batch for a friend of mine. Still as awesome as always. MAKE THIS ASAP (if you haven't already...)!!!

September 2, 2011 at 3:45 PM

Just got back from making this. Ok, this was way too easy. I thought I was going to be in the kitchen forever. I wasn't there more than 15 minutes. I put it in "his and hers" containers. With mine I threw in walnuts. Of course now I have to wait until tomorrow to try it but right off the spoon, it was DELISH!! Thanks for sharing this. I still think you belong on the Food Network (no kidding).

I tried this 2 nights ago. The resulting product was fantastic at first taste but it is too sweet and buttery. Is there any way to adjust the taste now?

December 12, 2011 at 2:19 PM

Hmm, I would try to whip it with the mixer, perhaps your flavors separated? Other than that, I'm not sure how much you can adjust the flavor at this point:(

December 28, 2011 at 2:21 PM

What do you mean with 2 cups? How many dl is this? (:

(I'm from Norway)

January 30, 2012 at 7:49 AM

mmmm looks delicious! think I'll definitely give this one a go at the weekend! quick question though - I'm not a great fan of marshmallow. can it be left out without ruining the recipe?

February 20, 2012 at 12:46 PM

can i keep the same recipe but double up on the nutella? would it change the consistency?

August 21, 2012 at 3:49 AM

OMG!!!! This is amazing and so simple! I thank you, my kids thank you, my hubby thanks you!! (My hips, however, DON'T!!!)
