  • Cuisine: American


A great homemade gelato made without an ice cream maker. We used an emulsion blender (and some patience) to create heaven overnight.


  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup powdered milk
  • 2 Cups 2% milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 Cup heavy cream
  • 1 Cup crushed chocolate covered pretzels
  • 1/2 Cup hot fudge (room temperature)


  1. In a mixing bowl (stainless steel works best) add milk, cream, powdered milk, sugar and vanilla. Mix until sugar is dissolved.
  2. With an emulsion blender, mix on high for 5 minutes, to incorporate air.
  3. Place in freezer for 2 hours, and then mix with blender again for 5 minutes.
  4. Repeat 3 more times for a total of 5 times, mixing every hour instead of two.
  5. Cover with plastic and place in coldest place of freezer overnight.
  6. In morning combine crushed pretzels and fudge using a butter knife, cutting toppings into ice cream base.
  7. Transfer to container with air tight lid for 15 minutes or more.
  8. Serve and enjoy.
