Confetti Fudge Ice Cream Recipe
The look and flavor of this Confetti Fudge Ice Cream recipe is like a party in a scoop! The taste is total celebration!
This recipe is a taste sensation for birthday parties! The texture is creamy and the flavor would not only go great with any birthday cake…on its own, with the addition of a little bit of almond extract (which brings out a cake flavor) and fudge (duplicating a frosting), it tastes like cake and ice cream in a dish!
You can find these little confetti candies in the baking section of the grocery store with other sprinkles.
I have to admit, the first attempt flopped. You can’t add the confetti or the fudge before making the ice cream. The confetti becomes muddled in the ice cream and the fudge gives the ice cream a light chocolate tint which drowns out the colorful accents of the confetti. It looks more like crayons melting in mud.
You should add the fudge quickly or it will tend to melt into the ice cream. Pushing it straight down into the ice cream with the back of a spoon immediately after pouring the ribbons seems to work the best. And don’t rush and pour it all in, then push it down. Just a ribbon at a time. Then get it in the freezer as quickly as possible.
In this recipe, the addition of butter replaces the need for half and half.
You can also make this Confetti Fudge Ice Cream recipe without the fudge in the ice cream if you prefer…and voila! Confetti Ice Cream! Serve it with a sprinkle of confetti or nuts over the top.
