First, I’d like to bring your attention over to the total number of hits on the cpv page. My mom called me early this morning to report I’d passed the 50,000 mark, so thanks to all of you for reading out there! If you don’t already, you can follow this blog through email, wordpress, facebook, twitter and/or tumblr using the links on the right side of the page.
Today is also my dad’s birthday, so a very happy birthday to him! 🙂
And now on to the ice cream…
With all the Halloween Candy on display recently, I’ve been longing for sweets in a way that only comes this time of year. I decided to make up a batch of candy ice cream to tame the the cravings for non-vegan things like candy corn, Reece’s Pieces and Butterfingers. I made my own ice cream many years ago, but never had much success making vegan ice cream myself, so I went with just mixing a chopped candy bar into some store bought vanilla. I used a Jokerz bar from Go Max Go foods to make fake Snicker’s ice cream, but you can use whatever candy you like best.
Easy Vegan Candy Bar Ice Cream
1 pint of ice cream, flavor of your choice (A quart is pictured here, but I only used half.)
1 full size vegan candy bar, or equivalent
1. Take the ice cream out of the freezer and let it sit out for about 10 minutes.
2. Chop up your candy. Basically, you want a third of it in bigger chunks to your liking, and the rest chopped up finely to disperse evenly into the confection.
3. Scoop ice cream into a a medium sized bowl and fold in candy bits until well combined. Eat as is for a blizzard type dessert, or freeze it for a nice custom ice cream!
