Raspberry Preserve Ice Cream

We're staying true to summer over here in LA... (it's not over yet!!!)... so we had to share our super easy Raspberry Preserve Vanilla Ice Cream recipe! When I say easy, I mean easy! Not to mention so subtly delicious too! I used my airy Vanilla Ice Cream recipe as a base and then added some flair!
Ingredients
2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup raspberry preserves
2 cups chocolate chips (optional)
2 teaspoons vanilla flavor
pinch of salt


Instructions
Mix cream, milk, sugar, vanilla and salt together and stir until sugar completely dissolves. Pour into your ice cream maker and mix for about 30 minutes or until you reach your desired consistency. Slowly add in the raspberry preserves so they don't freeze in too large of clumps.

Slowly melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Tip: Small time increments with lots of stirring in-between works best and keeps the chips from burning. Drizzle chocolate into the churning ice cream maker. The sudden cold temperature will cause the chocolate to harden and crack. Tip: Don't pour in large clumps or you'll end up with giant rock-solid chunks of chocolate.

Pour ice cream in a container and place a piece of parchment paper over the ice cream to keep it from crystalizing. Freeze for 2 hours or more.
Serve and enjoy!

Chocolate-Dipped Sugar Cones

What's better than a sugar cone topped with your favorite ice cream? ... A CHOCOLATE-DIPPED sugar cone topped with your favorite ice cream!!! This is the easiest recipe to add a little fun (and some awesome flavor) to your dessert. Even better, the possibilities are endless! Sprinkles, chopped nuts, peppermint chips (for the holidays!) or just straight up chocolate goodness, it's all good!
Ingredients
6 sugar cones
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pistachios
1 cup chopped almonds
rainbow sprinkles

Chop all of your nuts ahead of time. I use my trusted Slap Chop (those infomercials are amazing).

Slowly melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. Tip: Small time increments with lots of stirring in-between works best and keeps the chips from burning.

Dip cones in chocolate and shake off all excess. Tip: Try to remove the chocolate from the inside of the cone to avoid it ultimately being super hard to bite into.

Hold cone over a bowl and sprinkle with nuts or sprinkles if desired. Place upside down on wax paper and let completely dry before removing. Store in an air tight container.
Now for the fun part... adding the ice cream! Can you believe how gorgeous these cones look?! Seriously dying over those yummy colors! Which one is your favorite and what ice cream would you choose to top them off with? Stay tuned later in the week when I share the recipe for the ice cream I chose. Enjoy!
