This salted dark chocolate ice cream has the perfect balance of salty and sweet in creamy, rich chocolate.
For my latest ice cream creation I made something dear to my heart…salted dark chocolate ice cream.
I love putting salt on my ice cream (crazy pregnancy hormones make me crave salty and sweet together…now I’m hooked). It really brings out the sweetness. I especially love adding salt to chocolate ice cream.
I figured I might as well put salt IN my ice cream instead of adding it every time I scoop a dish.
If you tolerate nuts, chopped almonds would be great in this ice cream. If you don’t tolerate dairy you can make it with coconut milk. It still tastes wonderful!
Are you like me and grew up eating a Wendy’s Frosty along side french fries? That’s what this salted chocolate ice cream reminded me of as I was eating it. YUM! Chocolate plus salt…what could be better?!
Even my daughter LOVES it. So it is very kid friendly. It’s a perfect summer treat.
If you like chocolate ice cream you’ll love this salted dark chocolate ice cream. It’s like chocolate ice cream kicked up a notch.
