Ice Cream Party and Ice Cream Recipe #4 Triple Chocolate Ice Cream

I know I challenged myself to make a ice cream a week in July, although I am posting this in August I made it over the weekend!!

At the beginning of the summer my children each wrote a wish list of things to do over the summer. My littlest guy requested a Ice cream Party. When I knew we were having another family over for dinner I decided to give him his party!!
I really talked it up saying we would have make your own sundaes and just bought a few toppings and sauces. I also bought vanilla ice cream. I decided to make the adults homemade ice cream as a treat. Triple Chocolate Ice Cream….
I even let the kids have a little bit…I made it the morning of and it was a little soft at serving time but delicious. 
  Loving my Kitchenaid Optional Attachment – Ice Cream Maker attachment. I love that when I make homemade ice cream I know what is going inside of it. I used organic dairy products and even sugar I had on hand…for a fraction of the cost of store bought organic that is hard to find.
Even the adults took part in the build your own party…we are all young at heart.
