Today’s post is brought to you by the fantastic Rachel of Baked by Rachel. This lady has three kids, whips up amazing food and still has time to chat with me on Twitter. I need some of this woman’s energy. Plus, her food looks amazing and I would let her cook for me any day of the week. If I lived closer I know I would be over there almost every day. Probably mooching lunch…or dinner…or dessert…

Hi! I’m Rachel of Baked by Rachel. If there is one thing I’d never ever want to live without, it’s bacon. Okay, and ice cream. Wait… and apples. My list could go on and on but I’ll just stop right there. When Brandy asked me to join her ice cream social, I knew immediately how much fun it’d be. I had no idea how much I’d debate over what to make, though. Seriously, I’m probably the most indecisive person you will ever meet.

I’d recently made a creamy vanilla based ice cream that was seriously heavenly. I decided to recreate that with a totally fun and easy alteration. Instead of putting my favorite toppings on the ice cream, they went in it. In the future, I’d probably add double the amount of fudge and strawberry sauce but I go a little crazy when it comes to those.

Even if you don’t love strawberry sauce or fudge, you could easily adapt this with your favorite toppings…turned into fillings.

Directions:

In a medium saucepan, dissolve sugar and salt in 2 cups of heavy cream. Add 1 1/2 tsp vanilla. When warm, remove from heat and cover.Allow to sit for 30 minutes.

Place a medium bowl inside of a larger bowl filled with ice and water. Add remaining 1 cup heavy cream to the medium bowl. Set aside.

Beat eggs. While stirring constantly, gently drizzle hot cream mixture into eggs. Pour egg and cream mixture back into saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently until thickened. The mixture will lightly coat the back of a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

Run a knife gently through ice cream to create swirls. Freeze 4-6 hours or overnight. Allow ice cream to warm slightly before serving.

Given how much I absolutely adore chocolate covered strawberries, I'm thinking you can't go wrong with this combo in ice cream! Oh and I'd double the strawberry and fudge too. Natch.
