It's summer, it's warm and I'm pregnant. Ice cream is pretty much it's own food group these days. Luckily, my dear girlfriends who come over every Monday to watch the Bachelorette are more than willing to test out all my ice cream recipes. I mean, what are friends for? I started out with a basic vanilla recipe when I got my ice cream maker a couple weeks ago, and have been getting increasingly adventurous. Chocolate Cinnamon Ice Cream is definitely my favorite thus far, the cinnamon accents basic chocolate ice cream PERFECTLY.
2 quarts of half and half
1/2 pint of heavy or whipping cream
1 1/2 cup of sugar
1 pinch of salt
1/2 cup of chocolate sauce ( I used Midnight Moo from Trader Joe's)
2 – 3 tablespoons of cinnamon
extra cinnamon to sprinkle on top
Mix all ingredients together and then follow specific directions for your ice cream maker.
Speaking of sweets, Sarah is just that! She's one of the sweetest girls I've met in blogland in awhile, and has an absolutely adorable sense of style….I want her to decorate my apartment! She's also giving away an ad space on her blog, and a Target gift card. See? Sweet!
Hello everyone! My name is Sarah and I blog over at A Girl Smitten. I am a twenty-something spontaneous homebody (I know, right?!) residing in a small Texas town with dreams of moving back to the grand city of Austin. That place is the bee knees, you guys. I'm serious. On any given day I'm talking about home-y stuff and style stuff and the crazy pups (and boyfriend) that keep things glorious and all the while trying to decide where I ultimately want to be. It's lots of fun all around, I promise. So stop on by and see what makes my little spot in the world into the big, beautiful place that it is!
