Kit Kat Ice Cream

Kit Kat Ice Cream – Homemade malted chocolate ice cream with plenty of chopped-up Kit Kats. Candy bars and ice cream are always a good idea.

What I really should call this ice cream is “Kitty Cat” ice cream. My children are getting to the point where homemade ice cream is no longer impressive to them. They are so jaded. I try to tell them that not all moms make their kids ice cream from scratch. But they don’t believe me. When I made this, they were skeptical, but once they tasted it, they begged for more. “Mama, can I have some more kitty cat ice cream?” Maybe I still can impress them every now and again.

This recipe comes from my new friend Susan Whetzel’s (we met at the glorious Dole event that I will tell you about later this week) book The Everything Ice Cream, Gelato, and Frozen Desserts Cookbook. It has tons of great recipes for all things frozen, and lots of helpful tips. I heard from a little bird that Susan might be having a gigantic giveaway over on her blog today. Go on over and check it out. And while you are at it, buy her book and have a summer filled with frozen deliciousness. I promise you will not be sorry.

I made this for my son (wink) this weekend and it was amazing!

I try to save calories where I can, so with sugar being over 700 cal./cup (yikes!), I did substitute it with a stevia based baking sweetener. I can tell it's not real sugar, but the rest is so wonderful it doesn't bother me at all. The only other thing I did differently was to put the kit kats in a gallon zip lock bag and crush them. I was careful not to pulverize them so we still got mostly whole pieces. It worked great!

Thank you - thank you - thank you for sharing!

This ice cream recipe sounds so delicious! I have a question though. My son is allergic to eggs. Would it significantly change the taste/texture of the ice cream if I omitted the egg?

I would use this one as the base https://bakedbree.wpengine.com/chocolate-ice-cream and make it a Kit Kat version.
