Triple Threat – Chocolate Cherry Walnut Ice Cream

Triple Chocolate Cherry Walnut Ice Cream- Easy to make, addictive to eat.

Yah baby! How do you like those….cherries. Okay it started off okay then got weird. Which seems par for the course for me. doesn’t it?

This one has lots of nuts, just like my weekend with my family. Chock full of nuts. Mostly me. The biggest nut of all.

Enough about nuts, let’s talk about chocolate. Ah, sigh, chocolate. I love chocolate. So very much. So I put tons of it in here. Like oodles, like oodles and bunches. I made the base chocolate then I thought to myself, “self, this is NOT enough chocolate”. So I made myself put more, as more is always better. Especially when it comes to chocolate. So I asked myself again, “self, what else could you add to make it more chocolately and make people pass out upon biting into it.” So I made myself add chocolate pieces. But it still didn’t seem to be enough chocolate. So once again I asked myself, “self how on earth can you pack more chocolate into this so when people eat it then will be in a chocolate coma”. So I made myself add white chocolate pieces. So there ya go, chocolate upon chocolate upon chocolate. How can you go wrong with this much chocolate? You can’t!!! You cannot go wrong with that much chocolate. Or that much nuts.

Yet something was still missing. So how do improve upon this masterpiece, well if you’re me, you add cherries. Not just any cherries, but fresh cherries. Yah baby, fresh cherries rock my world. Chocolate rocks my world. Nuts rock my world. My world was rocked this weekend. If you want your world rocked you should make this. Or hop on a plane like Scott and Donna did and I’ll make this for you. Sound like a plan? How many beds should I make up?

Can you hear angels singing? Honestly, is that not just the prettiest thing ever! If you think it looks good you should taste it. Every bite is packed with chocolately, nutty, cherrier (is that a word? it is now) goodness. Makes your mouth sing. Party in your mouth. Yup, you’re gonna want to buy bigger pants. But who could resist this? You’d have to be a saint, or allergic to chocolate or something. Okay so on to this slamming, rocking, mouth partying recipe. Enjoy, and make it often. I know I am pulling this one out when we have company. That was how many beds now??
