I have been on a bit of an ice cream kick lately since I picked up the ice cream freezer attachment for my KitchenAid Mixer. This is essentially a big bowl that you freeze overnight and then attach it to the mixer which agitates the ice cream mix and helps it freezer in very small, smooth crystals.
We have made a gelato, a granita and some great vanilla ice cream with it, but I am always on the lookout for new things to try.
While it might be a little expensive to use this much Nutella, this recipe certainly sounds worth a try. We love Nutella and are currently nursing a huge bottle of Italian Nutella we brought back from our last trip visiting family in Sicily. Here in America, all the Nutella is made in Canada and, some say, has a slightly different flavor. Still, I think this could be great even using an off-brand of hazelnut-chocolate spread.
I first saw this recipe on Pinterest.com, which is exploding as the next great social media, link sharing site on the Internet. You can follow all my shared items on Pinterest by visiting my personal page.
