We are coffee lovers in my house, so I thought for my second ice cream flavor that I would attempt making an #espresso #icecream. This batch has a kiss of chocolate because, I’m using dark chocolate covered espresso beans.

Inactive Prep Time: 2 hours
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Machine Churning Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time On Stove: 1-2 minutes ( long enough for the sugar to dissolve

3 cups of heavy cream
2/3’s cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of Kahlua
1 cup of chopped dark chocolate espresso beans ( measured after they are ground up finely)
1 pinch of Kosher salt

Place the heavy cream into a sauce pan with the sugar and salt. Heat the cream just enough to dissolve the sugar and salt completely. Take your clean finger and dip it into the warm cream. If you feel no grittiness when you rub you two fingers together, then the sugar has dissolved completely. Remove the cream from the heat and add in the Kahlua and Vanilla extract. Place the cream mixture into a bowl and place into the frig for at least 2 hours. Make sure that the ice cream machine bowl was placed into the freezer from the night before, so it will be really cold when you are ready to make the ice cream. After the two hours are up, take the bowl attachment and place it onto the ice cream machine and turn it on. Next slowly pour the cream mixture, from the frig, into the ice cream machine. Let it churn following the manufacturer’s directions which is about 20 minutes. Then at this point, I add in my dark chocolate espresso beans that have been chopped, and let the ice cream maker go another 5 minutes to all the espresso beans are mixed through evenly. That’s it. I then just remove the ice cream and place it into a quart container and freeze overnight. If you love coffee, you’re going to love this ice cream.
