I so desperately wanted to title this post "Get Out of My Life" but that probably wouldn't draw many people in. As I've said, I've been trying to get to my goal weight and with a huge pile of Halloween candy sitting around, it's not likely to happen anytime soon.
So I did some thinking and decided that ice cream would be a nice way to get some of that candy off the counter. We talked to the kids ahead of time and got the okay to raid their supply. While they were at school, DH and I sorted through to figure out what we had the most of and what would work well in ice cream.
We headed off to Walmart to pick up supplies. Basically, we only needed a handful of ingredients. Most are in our cabinets at home but we needed fresh dairy products. We recently discovered that our Walmart is carrying Dean's Milk. After our daughters won a contest to be featured on the Dean's Dip Facebook page, we became big advocates for the brand. We already used their dip (which is why they were featured) but none of the other Dean Food products have been on our shelves before. At least not that we've noticed. Until now!
So we grabbed our ingredients, including Dean's whole milk, and headed home. Here are the rest of the details!
Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Twix
- 2 Cups Dean's Whole Milk
- 2 Cups Heavy Whipping Cream
- 4 oz (8 Fun Size bars) Hershey Chocolate Bars
- 3/8 Cup Sugar
- 4 Tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 6.8 oz (17 mini bars) Twix candy bars
Whisk together milk and heavy cream.
Soften chocolate bars in the microwave (20 seconds at a time). Stir until smooth. While continuously whisking milk mixture, add melted chocolate. Be sure to continue stirring to minimize lumps. You'll end up with chocolate bits.
Add mixture to ice cream maker and chill according to machine's directions. KitchenAid attachment required about 30 minutes to get to soft-serve status. Add Twix mix-in pieces and allow to continue to run another 2 minutes. Remove from ice cream maker, place in freezer-safe container and freeze until desired consistency.
