There is nothing better on a super hot summer day than a big bowl of ice cream…and this recipe is a family favorite at our house! I used a small ice cream maker like this one, and it only takes a few ingredients to make a delicious dessert in about 30 minutes!
Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream
2 cups whipping cream
2 cups 2% milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp cocoa
20 maraschino cherries, quartered
1/4 cup maraschino cherry juice
Mix all ingredients except for the cherries with an electric mixer for about 2-3 minutes. Put mixture into the ice cream maker and run your ice cream maker according to normal instructions. I mixed mine for about 25-30 minutes before it was ready. About 5 minutes before ice cream is done, add in the cherries. You can eat the ice cream immediately but it will be very soft. If you leave the ice cream in the freezer for a few hours, it will set up very nicely but either way it is absolutely delicious!
