Rocky Road Ice Cream

This was really easy to make and OMG is is delicious! I wanted to make this sooner, but with this crazy NY heatwave and no Air conditioning in my apartment ice cream wasn't going to come together too easily, especially when it's warmer inside sometimes than it is outside. Yesterday it was overcast and cooler than it's been in a while so I decided it was as good a time as any to get moving on this ice cream idea that's been in my head for over a week.

Rocky Road Ice Cream

3 Cups Milk
1 Cup heavy cream
1 1/2 Cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/4 cup chocolate covered peanuts

warm 1 1/2 cups milk in a medium bowl on high heat in the microwave for 45 seconds.
Add remaining milk and cream to bowl and stir well.
Stir in vanilla
Pour mixture into ice cream maker.

Watch your time carefully and add the marshmallows and peanuts in the last 5 minutes of the ice cream cycle, slowly so they don't clump together and become evenly incorporated into the ice cream.

Pour ice cream into covered, air tight container and freeze for 3-4 hours until set.

This was the ice cream straight out of the ice cream maker.. it barely made it into the freezer, lol.
