Nutella-Swirled Vanilla Ice Cream with Reese’s-Style Chunks

Nutella-Swirled Vanilla Ice Cream with Reese's-Style Chunks

The other day I was busy writing out my grocery list when I heard Charlotte say to Truman in a very grown-up voice, “No no Truman, you can’t have that.” And she pulled a large serrated knife out of his hands and gently set it out of reach.

It’s a good thing someone is around to do the mothering when I’m writing out my grocery lists. For all my complaining lately about the fact that Charlotte is practically a teenager these days, at least I get the saving-my-baby-from-mortal-peril perks.

Speaking of grocery lists, am I the only one who goes into a seeming trance when writing them out? Seriously, bombs could explode. Ryan Gosling could give that “Hey girl” look. Heroic toddlers could save babies from imminent death. I would still be trying to decide whether to categorize “pimientos” in the “canned veggie aisle” or the “pickles and olives aisle.”

Today I’m guest posting this fake homemade ice cream over at The Kitchen Prep. And by fake I just mean it’s not really homemade. I bought vanilla ice cream at the store and swirled in some Nutella and homemade Reeses-like peanut butter chunks. Come check it out!

    Truman must be a smart kid, and knows “grocery list time” is also “mom’s not watching, let’s get dangerous time”. I totally zone out when making grocery lists too. It may look like I’m standing in my kitchen, but really I’m virtually walking thru the grocery store, aisle by aisle, thinking of everything I need.

    This ice cream looks SO good! Smart you mixing it in with vanilla ice cream! I have this ice cream pie recipe that I make when I’m “lazy” and having people over. It’s literally ice cream and store bought oreo crust. Easiest ever. I just let everyone think I made it all from scratch, *wink*.

    That’s my kind of ice cream recipe!! Seriously. I always forget to put the ice cream maker bowl in the freezer at least 24 hours in advance, so I have to end up making it in a square baking pan and baby-sitting it by stirring every 30-60 minutes to avoid big ice chunks. I get a headache just typing that out! And you must be an awesome mom that your daughter already knows to take away the knife from your son. Hooray for smart kids!

    I categorize my grocery list, too! I love that I’m not the only one! It totally makes life simpler when you’re at the store. I just wish that every store was the same. I feel like I need separate grocery list organizing styles for each specific grocery store! Anyway, could a combination of flavors be more perfect for this ice cream! Love it! P.S. Loving the nail polish. ;)

    Lol, “fake homemade ice cream.” That’s got to be the best thing ever. Screw spending all that time churning out your own. I’d waaaaaaay rather buy a giant bucket of good ice cream and add chunks of candy, ribbons of caramel and rivers of chocolate in myself. These photos are amazing. I may or may not have licked my screen frantically in the hopes that some of this would have ended up in my mouth instead of all the dust ‘n bacteria. As for your son with the knife – I had zero parental supervision as a kid so I injured myself in all kinds of ways. Jumping on a nail on a rotted board, falling down the stairs, snipping my finger with scissors, trying to slice my sister’s pan of rock hard Rice Krispies squares with a knife and instead, sliding my entire hand down the blade. I’m still alive so I’m sure your kids will be fine, especially with Charlotte’s keen eye!

    I zone out when I write out my grocery list too but yay, so glad Charlotte was there to step in. I have been feeling really lazy to pull out my ice cream maker this summer so using storebought ice cream sounds perfect! Love all the add-ins!
