Summer Winter or Fall, ice cream is still going to be a favorite anywhere we live. Maybe not as popular where it snows. Here is fun treat to keep that summer smile in us all year round. I have to say I have been on an homemade kick for the past several months now. I first thought my favorite was peanut butter cup, then it was pistachio, then came the eggless cookie dough, oh boy was that delicious!  Then the strawberry was amazing. Guess what my favorite is now? Yes you guessed it's Rocky Road! Hope you give this a try it really put the kid back into you! What a fun ice cream! The video clearly gives you the idea of how easy this is to make!

Rocky Road Ice Cream Recipe

1 cup whole milk
2/3 cup sugar (if you like less sweet go with a 1/2 cup)
8 ounces good grade bittersweet or semi sweet chocolate chopped into small chunks
2 cups heavy cream well chilled
1 or 2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup whole or chopped pecans

Heat the milk until it starts to just bubble on the sides. In a blender using a metal blade, plus the chocolate chunks and sugar together until fine. Add the hot milk, beat until smooth. Place in a bowl and into the refrigerator to cool. When cool, add the heavy cream and vanilla. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Add to your ice cream maker follow the package instructions.

 Around 35 minutes. 5 minutes before this is done add the chips, marshmallows and pecans. Turn into a freezer container with lid.  Freeze for at least two more hours before serving.

Note: you can put this in a regular freezer container and stir every 1/2 hour, once it's thick enough and not soupy, stir in the marshmallows, chips and nuts. Return to the freezer until solid still stirring every half hour.
