Doughnut Ice Cream


Ever have one of those nights where you're just looking for junk food to eat? Last week I was in a Dunkin Donuts/Baskin Robbins with a few friends and was craving something unhealthy. I swindled my way to 7 donuts (all different types mind you) for $2, then went home, pureed a few in half-and-half, along with some sugar and vanilla extract, froze that mixture in the ice cream machine, then folded the rest of the doughnuts (cut up into bite size pieces) in at the end.


You know how when you get those late night cravings, you just want something fast? I really just threw everything together as fast as possible and my doughnut (yes I realize I switch off between doughnut and donut) ice cream turned out to be an idea awesome in conception, but awful in execution. I'm really not sure why I thought jelly might taste good pureed with chocolate, glazed and strawberry-- and it really didn't, it was horrendous.


Mark my words though, someday I will get it right!

Donut soup is delish, so why not ice cream?
