“Why, yes, Daddy, I would like some ice cream. How kind of you to ask!”
We made chocolate ice cream the other week and, as you can see, the kids seemed to enjoy it. It was the first time we’d attempted making chocolate and it turned out fairly well. I think that Emma and Henry would have enjoyed it either way!
We’re using our electric maker more and more these days and my trusty White Mountain freezer less and less. I definitely think the hand cranking makes for better ice cream. I secretly think it’s the sweat but wiser men (Alton Brown) would tell you it is the fact that you can put more air into it with your arm than a little electric motor.
Either way you can’t argue with the convenience of electric nor the grins of happy, chocolate-covered children.
