Introduction: Coffee Magic Ice Cream

Picture of Coffee Magic Ice Cream

I love coffee and I love ice cream!
I found this recipe on the PW website and I recreated at home with some minor changes...It is divine!
This is not real ice cream, I have to be honest, but it tastes like ice cream and it's a lot less time consuming!

This is what you need :)
* 1 package Cool Whip
* 1 whole chocolate bar with hazelnuts (or almonds) (90 g)
* 2 tbsp of strong coffee

Step 1: Get the Ingredients Ready!

Leave your Cool Whip out of the counter for about 15 min, so it will soften up!
Make a very strong coffee (espresso is the best!) and let it cool down.
In your microwave (or in a double sauce pan), melt the chocolate bar.

Step 2: Make Your Ice Cream!

Add 2 tablespoons of strong coffee to the soften cool whip and stir gently.
Add the melted (but cool chocolate) and mix. The cool whip (which is cool) will turn the melted chocolate bar into small solid pieces.
Then re frost your delicious coffee-choco cream over night. And the following morning….you will have a fantastic “ice-cream” texture dessert!

it looks sooooo good

I went & checked Nigella's recipe. It uses:
1/2 c lime juice
2 Tbs tequila
3 Tbs orange liqueur (triple sec or cointreau)
1-1/4 c powdered sugar
2 c heavy (whipping) cream

Combine lime juice, tequila, liqueur, & sugar, whisking until sugar dissolves. Then add cream and whoisk until soft peaks form. Place in freezer-safe container & freeze for 18-24 hours. This will never freeze hard, so remove from freezer immediately before serving.

I haven't tried this recipe, but it sounds decadently delicious.

I bet you could do something similar with (real) whipped cream--Nigella Lawson made something very similar with whipped cream & margarita mix!

This is really easy. I've never really liked cool-whip but will try out this recipe sometime. :)
