Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Cherry Chocolate Chip Ice Cream in a Sugar Cone Drizzled with Chocolate!

Although I’m not much of an ice cream connoisseur, I wanted to make this for my husband as his dessert tonight and I have to say it is over the top good! I found it in this month’s Woman’s Day Magazine.

Cherry and chocolate is my husband’s favorite concoction, so I chose that, but you can make it with bananas and peanuts, peaches, blueberries, crushed chocolate cookies, M&M’s… the recipes are endless.

To make it a little extra special, I bought sugar cones and coated the edge with melted chocolate and let it dry. I also dripped a little warm chocolate inside and allowed it to sit in the freezer so he got a big bite of chocolate at the end. He had seconds. I bet you will too. Enjoy and stay cool!

Ingredients:

12 ounces of fresh cherries, washed and pitted

1/4 cup – sugar

2 Tbsp- water

2 cups- heavy cream, cold
