Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker, aka An Really Great Gift

My mother and father-in-law rock. They rocked before they gave us this totally cool (pun intended) gift for Christmas. But this just upped the rock level somewhat. I was totally stoked about it. 
We broke it out tonight to make sweet cream with chocolate chunk and strawberries ice cream. 
Here we go, folks. Here. We. Go. 

Thanks to Ben and Jerry, we found a sweet cream recipe to be the base. Get yo’ self two eggs and whisk ’em until they are light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Whisk in 3/4 cup of sugar slowly. After all the sugar has been added, whisk well until combined. Add in 2 cups heavy cream and 1 cup milk. Whisk until combined and then pop in the freezer to chill it. Add to ice cream maker, and turn that bad boy on.

Cut about 1 cup of strawberries into quarters. Cut a few extra, pop in mouth.

When ice cream is almost ready, add in berries and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. I forgot to take a picture of this step so just imagine me doing it. Close your eyes…can’t you see me pouring those chips and strawberries into the mixer? I know it’s been the most exciting thing you’ve done today. But alas, all good things must come to an end. So open your eyes and get yourself back to reality.

Or to see the fruit of my labor. This made roughly two quarts and there was zero, zip, zilch left. 
Hope you had a yummy day after Christmas, too,
MacKenzie
