Sometimes what you really need is a slab of chocolate and some really, really good ice cream. Thankfully, I am more than capable of making both!
I whipped up a batch of deep, dark, chocolately brownies, with chocolate chips mixed into the batter for good measure. Now normally, that is enough to satisfy me, but on certain days, it is going to take just a bit more than chocolate to see me through the day. How can anyone have a bad day when eating home made ice cream, and home made ice cream next to home made brownies….well….life just doesn’t get any better than that. Who said you can’t have ice cream in winter…NOT ME!
The ice cream is actually buttermilk ice cream. I found the recipe online and decided to try it out. It was DELICIOUS and I can’t wait to make it again! It was the perfect compliment to the brownie. It had a nice, slight tang from the buttermilk, the heavy cream and sour cream gave it just the right amount of fat to make your taste buds happy and the vanilla pushed it over the top. Awesome way to end the day!
