It's national ice cream month!

Did you know?
If not, I suggest taking advantage of the last two weeks left!

Here's what you should do...
Make Ben & Jerry's recipe of light chocolate ice cream.
Refrigerate for longer than an hour so that when you put it in your ice cream maker, it will get thicker and turn into ice cream instead of staying completely liquid. (I say this from my own experience. Charlotte and Amy and I learned this the hard way).
After letting it churn for about fifteen minutes or until it starts to thicken, add the following:
Heath Bar bits
white chocolate chunks
chocolate covered almonds
peanut butter cup chunks

Let it continue to churn for about another ten minutes or until thick and creamy. If you're like me and prefer your ice cream frozen over soft serve, you will then transfer it to a container with a lid and store it in the freezer for an hour or two. Or until you want to eat it.

After doing all this, what will you get?
Something very similar to this:

One of the most delightful flavors of ice cream you will ever taste, in my opinion.
It is GOOD.

And just to make your life easier, I suggest
using this kind of ice cream maker:
Trust me. If you don't have one, you need one.

Whatever you do, just remember it's national ice cream month! So go eat some ice cream!

I love how you make light ice cream and then add about 1000x the calories on the add-ins! :) That's why it sounds absolutely delicious. Hooray for national ice cream month! I seriously didn't even know. But I did eat some mint chip tonight. Yum.
