This deliciously easy Coffee and Donut Ice Cream with Mocha Hot Fudge Swirl is sure to please! A five ingredient homemade coffee ice cream is studded with mini chocolate donuts and then swirled with decadent Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce.
I have to give credit to my five year old daughter for inspiring me to create this Coffee and Donut Ice Cream. A few weeks ago as I was getting everyone breakfast, entertaining the baby and trying to unload the dishwasher, I overheard a ridiculous conversation between my two older daughters. They were eating donuts and the five year old was marveling that if she “took a drink of milk with donut still in her mouth it tasted so good!” Disgusting but true. Milk reminded me of ice cream and what is thought to be the perfect companion to donuts? Coffee! And thus this recipe was born.
Yes, my mind works in bizarre ways. I’m blaming it on the baby who has decided to quit sleeping through the night and naps less than a half hour a day. I’m guessing she’ll be demanding credit for inspiring this recipe as well.
And if coffee and donuts are a perfect pair, what could make this ice cream even better than a swirl of my Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce? For the record, that was truly a rhetorical question as there really isn’t much that could make this ice cream any better. In my humble opinion and all.
A deliciously easy homemade coffee ice cream is created with only five ingredients before being studded with mini chocolate donuts and then swirled together with Mocha Hot Fudge Sauce. The end result is absolute summer perfection. A sweet treat that’s suitable for dessert OR breakfast. Who am I to judge?
I’m also sharing this recipe over at Neighbor Food, my friend Courtney’s fantastic food blog. I crossed paths with her, a fellow Ohio food blogger, shortly after moving to Cleveland and she is such a kind and amazing person. She and her husband just welcomed their first child – a sweet baby boy! – and a handful of us are helping her celebrate by sharing recipes on her blog so that she can truly enjoy these first few weeks as a family of three. Definitely take a peek at her blog for some amazing recipe ideas!
