The days pass by really fast and once again I find myself falling behind in my blogging, visiting blogs, replying to emails and comments. A thousand apologies here. You have not been forgotten. Give me some time and I will catch up soon. I had a special friend all the way from Canada to visit for 1+ week and had just left the day before. I think we just had too much fun…..*big smiles*. Will blog about it soon.

It’s time for more ice cream. This is a special request by my little 4 year old friend, Ellie. She came one Thursday. I cooked spaghetti for her, Asian style, and she liked it very much. Then I asked her what would she like me to make when she comes again. After some thoughts, she replied, “Ice cream!”. I asked, “What type of ice cream?” And she said, “The one that I ate last time.” Last time? Oh my gosh…I can’t remember ………*sigh*. Oh…dear me…dear me! So I said, “So sorry I can’t remember. Is it raspberry ice cream?” It so happened that I was writing my blog post for my raspberry ice cream so I showed her the picture. She said, “Not that one! It was peach in colour!” Oh no, I can’t remember I ever had peach colour ice cream. So I told her that we would have something different….chocolate ice cream! She nodded her head…..big smiles for me.

Knowing that Ellie was coming again the next day, I hurried to the supermarket after dinner to get double cream to make my chocolate ice cream the next morning. That would give the ice cream a few hours in the freezer before Ellie comes. Hopefully it is not too soft or too rock hard.

This is the first time I made chocolate ice cream. I was very excited. I still had Philadelphia cheese in the fridge so I thought I could make a Chocolate Cheese Ice Cream. It’s always fun to try out new thing. Keeping my fingers crossed that it would come out very well. It did! I was so happy….*BIG smiles*.

I was just so excited to serve Ellie the ice cream. She asked me for it when she came. Wow…..she sure remembers! She likes the ice cream but did not finish it. I think it’s a little too rich for her. Her mom is not one who loves ice cream but she loves this one very much. She ate her share and also finished Ellie’s one. I liked it very much too.

I don’t think I have eaten any cheese ice cream before. So this is a very special ice cream for me. I am so glad that I know how to make ice cream, even without the ice cream maker. Homemade is still the best. It’s cheap and you are in control of the ingredients…..no colouring and no preservatives.

Here is my easy and simple Chocolate Cheese Ice Cream recipe:

Ingredients A
300g double cream
200g condensed milk
200g soft cheese (cream cheese)

Beat cream, milk and cheese

Beat cream, milk and cheese

Put all Ingredients A into a mixing bowl and beat with a cake beater until quite thick. Don’t over beat.

Ingredients B
200g dark chocolate

Beat chocolate into cream mixture

Break the dark chocolate into a pot and put it over very low fire. Keep stirring until it is all melted. Remove from heat. Add to the cheese mixture above. Beat again until well combined and thick.

In containers eady to freeze

Pour the chocolate cheese mixture into a plastic container. I poured into 2 microwave boxes, one bigger and one smaller. You can use the same size ones of course. Put the ice cream into the freezer and wait a few hours for it to harden.

I took it out after 4 hours and it was just perfect. Look at this scoop here………creamy, chocolatey and delicious! However if you leave until the next day, it will harden further. Take it out, rest a while before you scoop. It tastes just as great.

I am sure this ice cream will be perfect served with Paris Brest which I had just posted. Instead of the custard or cream, you can sandwich the Paris Brest with this ice cream. I can just imagine biting into it….mmmm……*big smiles*.

Having said that, I served Ellie a big piece of Paris Brest the other day when she came again. I drizzled condensed milk over it. She liked it so much she asked for a second helping! I was so happy of course. Just look at her face here. That sweet smile tells it all!

Hope you are having much fun trying out new recipes at home. Home made is still the best!

I scream you scream, we all scream for ice cream :D. I’ve had your ice cream before and it’s definitely a must try. Seriously, I think it’s better than the store bought ones - so yummy! I like mine just a bit soft so I always wait a little for it to melt a bit. Your daughter’s coffee ice cream was really delicious too. I really need to look for double cream here and try making ice cream for my kiddies.

Oh Ellie. She’s one ADORABLE little girl. Had much fun meeting her and playing games with her. She’s a very bright 4 year old girl and just full of cuteness! Please tell her I still remember how to play the song she taught me on the piano. She’s my very first piano teacher. Haha.

No wonder why you have got friends of different ages and from different places. The Paris Brest looks wonderful too … but frankly I was first intrigued by its name.

Oh yes, I know Ellie will miss you. I think she will ask about you when she comes again :D

@Pandy - Yes, give a try. I know you will like it. After eating, go for exercise….hehe. To make this ice cream, use soft Philadelphia cheese. And make the Paris Brest, too! :D And by the way, you did not win this time…..oooops!

Christine's Recipes  on August 18th, 2011

Aw, you’re so nice to people around and have been making so many yummy foods for them. Wish I lived around you, haha…
Your choc ice cream is so creamy!

Cookie  on August 18th, 2011

Hi Mary, so thoughtful for you to prepare everything homemade for your guest. Ice cream is alot cheaper in UK than back at home, so I alway resort to buying the commercial ones. But of course nothing beats what you have made with love!

Drick  on August 18th, 2011

I love this one, with cream cheese I suppose? it sounds great and I love it setting up in the freezer instead of in a ice cream maker…

uncle Lee  on August 18th, 2011

Hi Mary, I love this! Okay, when I come make it 4 scoops, add two sliced bananas, one strawberry, 3 cherries. Ha ha ha.
Mine go easy on the cheese……

Mary…..there is nothing more spectacular on this planet than that of a beautiful lady, wife, mother, lover in the act of baking, making ice cream for her loved ones.
Have fun, and keep a song in your heart.
Lee.

Janice  on August 18th, 2011

Wow that looks delicious and so easy.

Peachie  on August 18th, 2011

That must have been a really delicious ice cream with cream and cheese in it! Mmmmm….

5 Star Foodie  on August 18th, 2011

Wow, a chocolate cheese ice cream sounds super cool!

Catherine  on August 18th, 2011

Awww look at Ellie’s wee face; what a cutie! :D That ice cream sounds right up my street; I will need to make some for a day when I feel like pigging out infront of a cheesy movie or something :D

And I know what you mean about the pressures of blogging; I had to limit my blog posts to every Wednesday because I was starting to not enjoy it anymore, and I now love it again!

Thanks for sharing, Mary, hope you are well! :)

teresa  on August 18th, 2011
