I absolutely love it when cherry season rolls around. So we usually have bowls of them everywhere. I couldn’t resist using some in this homemade ice cream recipe.
In my book- cherries always pair with chocolate. So I tossed some chocolate chunks in there too.
Choc-O-Cherry Ice Cream
We used our ice cream maker for this to speed things along. I particularly like it when I’m adding in chunky things because it helps keep those add-ins from sinking. It also keeps me from having to come back at just the right time when freezing the ice cream to add the extras in there. I like dessert to be almost effortless in the summer. So using the ice cream maker just assists with that.
So smooth & so creamy. I swoon for those chunks of cherries in there.
It is SO GOOD my friends! You must try it!

ohmygosh…that looks heavenly! Cherry and chocolate…one of the best combinations ever!
I have been debating all summer about getting an ice cream maker. You may have just pushed me over the edge!
Oh yummy….I just made lemon this morning. How very fun!
I need to break out my ice cream maker!! i don’t know why we haven’t done that yet this summer! this looks absolutely amazing!! love your square bowl too!
Yum…looks so good. I really should dust off my ice cream maker. Mine is one of the old ones that still requires rock salt. I want one of those new ones that doesn’t. Of course I’d probably be making ice cream all the time if I did.
