Pistachio Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream Recipe

Saturday, August 17, 2013
Homemade Pistachio Ice with Pistachio's and Chocolate Chunks is probably my favorite ice cream of all time for a combination of perfect flavors for my taste! I really love to top it off with hot fudge, whipped cream and a cherry! I just didn't want to cover up the creamy photo with all those trimmings! If you want to treat yourself make it homemade and don't pay for that expensive small container of ice cream in the supermarket, make it yourself it's worth the 25 minutes in your ice cream maker. This is now my second time making ice cream homemade,

I will never buy it again.

Homemade Pistachio Ice Cream with Chocolate Chunks:

1 cup whole milk or half and half well chilled
2 cups heavy cream
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2  teaspoons almond extract or Amaretto is only Adults eat this
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup shelled pistachio's white ones not red
1 cup chocolate chunks or chopped ( a premium brand good grade chocolate like Lindt)

In a medium bowl whisk together the sugar and milk blending around 3 minutes until the sugar is dissolved.  Stir in the flavoring and heavy cream. For best result place in a freezer container and freeze for 3 hours before adding to machine.  Pour into the ice cream maker and churn for around 25 to 30 minutes. Ice cream is soft. Add the nuts and chocolate to stir in 5 minutes before your ice cream is done, I turn on the timer. Pour into an air tight container with a plastic film cover or an ice cream container with an air tight cover on top and place into the freezer until ready to use. Take it out 10 minutes before serving.
