MAKES ABOUT 2⁄3 QUART

You will need:



Ice Cream:

1 cup skim milk

3⁄4 cup heavy cream


1⁄4  cup granulated sugar

1⁄4  teaspoon vanilla extract

1⁄4  teaspoon hazelnut extract

generous pinch of high-quality sea salt

1 cup Nutella® chocolate-hazelnut spread



Marshmallow Sauce:

1  cup marshmallow Fluff

2  teaspoons water (more if needed)


  1. Warm the skim milk and cream in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring often to keep mixture from scorching. Do this for about 5 minutes, until it has begun to steam.
  2. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla and hazelnut extracts and salt and stir to thoroughly incorporate.
  3. Add the Nutella, whisking until the Nutella is thoroughly melted and integrated.
  4. Continue cooking, stirring continuously, for another 10 minutes; do not allow to boil.
  5. Transfer the pot to an ice water bath and stir until steaming stops.
  6. ransfer the mixture to an airtight container, cover, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
  7. fter chilling the mixture will separate slightly; whisk vigorously to reincorporate and then freeze according to your ice cream machine's instructions.
  8. For the marshmallow sauce, simply add a little bit of water to the marshmallow fluff to thin it out. You need to stir the water into the fluff with a fork and in seconds it turns into a fantastic sauce. You can experiment a bit to get your desired thickness.
  9. To brûlée the sauce, top your ice cream with a good dollop of the marshmallow sauce and then use a small torch to lightly toast the sauce and get a nice crunchy toast on it. Be careful when using fire!

TIP:

This ice cream freezes a bit soft, but it’s insanely delicious. When it is finished, enjoy on the spot or transfer to an airtight container and store it in your freezer for up to 4 days.
