Chocolate Mousse Ice Cream #IceCreamSocial


Sue of Palatable Pastime invited us to join her for an ice cream social today. "Join in for a fun posting with frozen treats of any kind, such as ice cream, frozen yogurt, gelato,sorbets, ices, affogatos, malts and shakes, ice cream cakes, ice cream pies, ice cream sandwiches, sundaes, popsicles, what have you," she wrote. 'Tis the season.

Here are the what the other cool gals are bringing to the #IceCreamSocial...

Mine...
"Mom," R commented, "you have never made chocolate ice cream." True. I usually stick to the fruity flavors. So, we fixed that...and he declared it the best chocolate ice cream he'd ever had! As far as the name - Chocolate Mousse - R said that it was just like frozen mousse. He loves mousse.

D disagreed that it was the best ever, but admitted, "It's not too bad, Mommy."

Ingredients
  • 1 C heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
Procedure

Place all of the ingredients in your ice cream maker and process according to your machine. Ours took about 30 minutes to come to a soft, gelato-like texture. Spoon ice cream into a container and freeze for at least an hour before serving.

  5. Sounds delicious. I usually make vanilla so we need to try chocolate.

  6. How many servings of ice cream do you get out of one cup of cream? was it just a taste for each of four people or does it puff up in some way to make more volume than a cup would imply?

    1. It does puff up a bit, but I serve this in demitasse cups, so we probably got 8 to 10 servings out of it. It's strong.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
