Me – “What kind of ice cream do you want me to make next?”
Stacey – “Something with coffee. And something with booze.”
Me – “Ok, I got that!”
These are the types of conversations we have here in my apartment! Don’t you wish you were one of my roommates? You had the opportunity if you were a young professional lady who happened to look on Craig’s List and reply to our advertisement. Sorry you missed you chance! Now you have to look at pictures of ice cream instead of eating it yourself! Our new roommate seems pretty cool and she loves peanut butter, I’m sure I’ll be talking about her more later.
I’m not going to lie here, this was my second batch of Kahlua Chip Ice Cream. The first batch had WAY too much Kahlua in it and never froze properly. It was a delicious, soupy mess. No worries, all the evidence has been
eaten destroyed. This batch is every the first one was and so much more! First of all, it’s a frozen the way ice cream should be, and second, it is amazing! The coffee and Kahlua flavors are strong and the ice cream base is creamy with the little bits of chocolate chips. This ice cream is a chocolate lover’s dream!
