Deliciously Sprinkled

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream

Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
Happy first official week of summer! 🙂 It definitely feels like summer here in Wisconsin, I’m loving the warm weather and sunshine! And to celebrate summer, I made my favorite homemade vanilla ice cream recipe. I love making homemade ice cream, it’s so easy to make and you don’t need an ice cream maker. Bonus!

Each summer growing up, we would make homemade ice cream and invite all the neighborhood kids over for an ice cream sundae party. My mom would have a ton of different toppings to choose from, and it was always so much fun to creating our own sundaes!

Homemade Ice Cream Recipe

As you can probably imagine, my favorite topping were SPRINKLES! I also loved to add cosmic brownies, my mom would cut them up into little squares. Lastly, my sundae wouldn’t be complete without whipped cream. I called my sundae brownie remix, and it was delicious!

And today, my brownie remix sundae got a big upgrade with a drizzle of Nutella, which made it even better than I remember it when I was a kid.

I invited some of my friends over to make their own brownie remix sundae with my homemade vanilla ice cream, it was a fun way to kick off the summer. And everyone loved the addition of the Nutella drizzled on top, most of them said it was even better than hot fudge, which I completely agree! 🙂
