It is ice age! Creamy vanilla ice cream with chocolate peanuts and chocolate fudge on this spring Sunday

Hello, spring! Nice to have you there.
Unusual, such an autumn that goes straight into spring. But really not wrong.
I'm already looking forward to animal first on the first wild garlic and rhubarb - you do not have to wait long time.
In Cologne, it was really incredibly mild in the past half year. I can only remember frost for 2 or 3 nights. Often I did not have to scratch ice. Unfortunately, we did not have any snow.
I really hope that spring will come and that winter will not come. Sockenlos for the first time - great!

To pick up the topic of ice cream again. If the weather does not bring ice, we make ourselves some! A few weeks ago a new ice cream machine It is ice age! Creamy vanilla ice cream with chocolate peanuts and chocolate fudge on this spring Sunday * moved in with me: Compressor machine Unold Cortina at - 26 ° C in use

So far, I only had one with a cold pack for Kennwood. Although it worked quite well, but you always need space in the freezer and must freeze the battery at least 24 hours before. Spontaneously making ice cream is impossible.
Now I have a real supercharged machine and there's nothing standing in the way of spontaneous ice cream creations.
