Happy Chocolate Ice Cream Day!

It's Chocolate Ice Cream Day! I had to run some errands and the little pirate was with me. I told him if he behaved and followed directions we would get some chocolate ice cream.

Originally, I wanted to take him to Braum's. But, I also wanted to eat ice cream outside, and still had one more stop...and thought it would be more cost effective to buy a tub of ice cream than to buy ice cream cones...turns out the stop I went to didn't have chocolate ice cream...and I didn't want to settle for anything other than that...and the little pirate was way past his ends wits with running errands. So, we got some chocolate milk, came home, put it in the ice cream maker with a cup of white milk, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 1 teaspoon of vanilla...
...watched a Big Bird movie while we waited. Then, added mini chocolate chips the last 5 minutes, scooped it out, and sprinkled it with chocolate sprinkles.
Finger-licking good!

  1. that looks quite tasty! I have the same ice cream machine, and I absolutely love to use it. Nothing better than making it yourself if you can't find it on the shelf!
