Call me crazy but I think ice cream is a year-round treat. It is especially awesome when you make it yourself and add your own special touch. I have been having so much fun with my new Cuisinart Automatic Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker from Hammacher Schlemmer. The ice cream maker was sent for inspiration and so many batches of soft serve have been made I have lost count.
I have been trying to find the perfect ice cream for winter and think I have done just that with this Frozen Hot Chocolate Ice Cream. There was a little trial and error to get it to the perfect state but alas, it is there. Here is the recipe:
The best thing about the Cuisinart Automatic Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker is the topping drop in option. You can easily add your favorite toppings to your ice cream from any or all of the three built-in condiment dispensers. Add nuts, M&M’s, candies, or anything else.
Since I am not big on directions I had a little trouble getting the perfect soft serve at first. I didn’t realize both the bowl and the ingredients needed to be chilled prior to making. Once I caught on to that though everything was easy and delicious.
Hammacher Schlemmer has so many great products that you can easily knock out your entire holiday shopping list. Heck, even when the holidays aren’t here you should still check them out. There is something for everyone for sure. If you happen to have $25,000 laying around I would love the Robotic Bartender as a gift 🙂
Of course not everything is in or over the quadruple digit price tag. There are plenty of things that are beyond affordable and they seem to only carry the best and most interesting products. I’m having so much fun looking around and you definitely will too. So head over and see how Hammacher Schlemmer can help you get your holiday shopping done.
