Vanilla Fudge Swirl Ice Cream Recipe
Last year I came across a super delicious 3-ingredient ice cream recipe that required no ice cream maker. If you didn’t read the original post, it was quickly declared the boyfriends favorite ice cream ever – store-bought or homemade. While he has a boring ice cream personality and is quite content to eat plain vanilla ice cream all the time, I like various ice cream flavors now and then. Last month it was the boyfriend’s birthday and he requested a marble cake with ice cream.
So, I pondered an ice cream that would go well with marble cake and immediately thought of a vanilla fudge swirl ice cream. The perfect match in the cake and ice cream realm, right? Since I already knew I wanted to use the delicious vanilla ice cream from last time as the base, I just needed to come up with a delish hot fudge sauce recipe and decide how to incorporate it. While you could totally use pre-made hot fudge sauce in this recipe, I wanted to make mine from scratch to be special for a birthday. I’ve already posted the hot fudge sauce recipe – just follow the link to get it. It’s so good I may or my not have eaten several spoonfuls of it while waiting for the ice cream to freeze up.
The resulting ice cream is just as good as the original. The vanilla ice cream is creamy and smooth and the hot fudge has a chocolate flavor that is just rich enough without being too sweet that accents the vanilla perfectly. The vanilla fudge swirl ice cream is great on its own, to make a sundae with, on brownies, and of course, cake. It’s also great for Valentine’s Day desserts since it’s full of yummy chocolate flavor.
This is what the ice cream looked like before and after I swirled the fudge in:
