TWD & What's the Scoop?: Chocolate Ganache Ice Cream


Today we have a multi-purpose post. What's the Scoop? and TWD. This will be my final What's the Scoop? this summer. After 10 weeks of ice cream, we are ready for a break. Most of the ice cream recipes were scaled back to make a small pint, but still.... we need to stop for a bit!

This is a great ice cream to end with. It is chocolate ganache mixed in with a custard base. Definately one of the best chocolate ice creams I have ever had.

I have been on a chocolate and peanut butter kick lately and thought PB chips would be a great add in for this ice cream. Unfortunately, while it wasn't bad, it wasn't the perfect mix in. This is the PERFECT chocolate base for Rocky Road. The whole time I was eating it I was wishing I had mixed him marshmallows. Oh well... maybe next time!

Thanks to Katrina of Baking & Boys for hosting this week. The recipe can be found at her blog or you can buy Baking:From My Home to Yours because you will want all the recipes! :)

Peanut butter and chocolate are amazing in any concoction but ice cream always elevates the flavors to absolute greatness. Love your ice cream picture and the peanut butter chips sound delicious!

If I did 10 weeks of ice cream...I can't even think of what might happen to me. Looks great!! You are to be commended. :)

Try 2 ice creams a week! :) I'm with you - I'll be ready for Fall with no ice cream here shortly! Looks great - I would think PB would be a hit with this, but sorry it didn't turn out. GREAT base though I totally agree! Congrats to a great Scoop run!
