Chocolate Snow Ice Cream

Easy 3 ingredient chocolate snow ice cream recipe!

For the first 20 years of my life, I was all about vanilla. I’m not sure what flipped the switch, but now I’m a chocolate lover through and through. I’m an avid hot cocoa drinker, especially on days like today where it’s 10 below. But, no matter the weather, I can always enjoy ice cream. Growing up, snow ice cream was a treat after a long day of sledding. I still enjoy it today! I love how light and fluffy it is. It feels a little less guilty and brings out the child in me. When getting ready to make hot cocoa this morning, I had an idea. What if I made a chocolate or hot cocoa ice cream? Thank heavens I did, because now I can’t imagine eating vanilla again. Frozen hot chocolate, chocolate snow ice cream, whatever you want to call it, it’s nothing short of amazing.

It’s chocolate – of course it’s great plain, but the girls like their hot cocoa traditional, with marshmallows. I prefer my ice cream like I enjoy my hot cocoa, with salted caramel.
