Heath Bar Ice Cream

It's getting pretty warm here.  Summer is upon us and soon our evening/morning lows will only be about 90 degrees.  I'm serious, once it starts registering over 105 consistently, day after day, our nights and mornings will be as warm, if not warmer, then most of your daily highs.  Aaaahhhhh... it's the life of the city desert dweller, what can I say.

So, how do we beat the summer heat around here?  With ice cream of course!!

I won't lie to you, not only could I eat pasta every day, but I could eat ice cream every day too.  I can be bought with ice cream, by the way, just in case you are in need of something from me.

But, enough of me, let's talk ice cream.  One of our favorite ice creams so far has been the Vanilla Ice Cream I posted last year.  It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!  But this one... I have to say, this base ice cream, was really, really, REALLY good.  It gave the vanilla ice cream a run for it's money, that I can safely say.  Then again, this one did rank a little higher in my book because of the Heath Bar pieces.  I do love me some chocolate coated toffee in my vanilla ice cream.....put a little chocolate syrup on top and, well... I've said this before... BUT... Heaven!!!

Oh, I had such a craving for ice cream last night! And just when I was over it, along this comes to tease me, looking so seductive. I'd have eaten it for breakfast, if it had been available ... :)

Don't even get me started. I was on a homemade ice cream kick two summers ago. The stuff is amazing, and with your own electric maker, is so easy...too easy. :-)

You're killing me here Jenn!! After baked chocolate (aka brownies or cookies) ice cream is my kryponite. I am utterly powerless to its sweet creamy goodness. This looks excellent!! Mmm heath bars in homemade vanilla ice cream? I'll be over around 4ish, have a big batch of this ready to go please :)

I'll have to make my own heath-bar knock off to try this one, but it looks delightful!

That sounds really good, even though it has rarely been over 60 here yet, I'd still eat it.

We love ice cream around here too, and Heath blizzards are one of my favorites. This reminds me of that. Yum!

I'm still waiting for Sunderland to get a little warmer before making home-made ice-cream. I always have store-bought ice cream on stand-by though, just in case I cannot wait any longer. This ice looks fantastic Jenn.
