White Dream Ice Cream

White Dream Ice Cream – Homemade vanilla ice cream, marshmallows, and white chocolate chips is a vanilla lovers ice cream dream.

Many years ago, I worked in an ice cream shop that made all of its ice cream. White Dream was one of our signature flavors. It is a vanilla base with white chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. I am not sure the exact recipe, but this is close. I use my Vanilla Bean Ice Cream as a base for all of my flavors, and it makes such a smooth, creamy, and rich base. I love it. I cannot wait to make some raspberry and peach when we settle down and get into our new house.

I am typing this post from Denver, Colorado. We have had a wonderful trip so far. Today we spent the day with good friends and toured the Coors Brewery. Tomorrow, we are going to make a big push and get to our final destination in Kansas. We will not be in a house for awhile, but it will be nice to stay in the same place for a few days. We have gotten really good at packing and unpacking the car. We have had a great trip, but we are getting really tired. So far, we have been to Salt Lake City, Cheyenne, Estes Park, Golden, and Denver. The kids get medals for how good they have been. They have been troupers. I am off to bed, I’ll see you in Kansas.

    Hi Bree! I recently discovered your blog and I am OBSESSED! I keep noticing how cool your whisk is, and now I really want one too! Where did you get your whisk?

      Thank you Mariya! I think that it came from Ikea, but I am not positive. I know that it was like $3.

    Um…I could top this ice cream with peanut butter sauce and only eat that for the rest of my life. I never would have dreamed up the white chocolate-marshmallow combo, what a great idea!

      Peanut butter would be great here. Fluffer Nutter Ice Cream, you might be onto something.

    Do you think I could melt the white chocolate and cut the marshmallows in smaller pieces? It’s a textural thing for the DH. Would the flavor be any less beautiful?
    I am extremely jealous of your move…I would give my left pinkie to get out of Illinois… 🙂

      If you melt the chocolate, make sure that that it is at least room temperature before you add it to the mix. And yes about the marshmallows. It would not be any less beautiful.
