Celebrating The Summer

Summertime. Oh how I love thee. The summer makes me want to listen to a lot of country music and live in the water. Summer in Daytona Beach is...uhhmazing! I guess because we are not true Daytonites, Daytonians, Daytona Beachers...or whatever you want to call the locals, but we are THRILLED to be living by the beach. It's like vacation every day, no joke. The only thing that makes country music and the beach better is homemade ice cream!

This baby was a gift from the one and only Kdids! Click on her name to learn more about her and her running. Anyway, back to my ice cream machine. I have had it for a year before we finally busted it out. Shameful, just shameful. But bust it out we did!

We had a little gathering of people to celebrate the use of our ice cream maker...so we made a lot of ice cream. But, not too much, because one can never have too much ice cream.

Chocolate Butter Finger Ice Cream...I have a freezer full, want to come over and have some? You can't? Because you live in a land locked state? Well that's okay! Because you can either hop on Allegiant Air and come visit...or you can make it yourself. If you choose the first option please comment below so I can mark my calendar. : )

If you are opting out of the visit and choose to make it yourself...I guess that's fine, as long as you play country music and celebrate the summer. If you don't like country music, then please choose some classic rock.

Chocolate Butterfinger Ice Cream
From Martha's Kitchen

-1/2 gallon Dutch Chocolate Milk (whole milk is the best)
-1 can Eagle Brand Condensed Milk
-12 Oz of Cool whip
-4 Butterfinger Candy Bars chopped

Combine all ingredients and mix well. Then pour it into your ice cream maker and voila! It's magic.


  1. I appreciate the shout-out! Is the ice cream maker your second favorite present from me?

  2. Haha, probably! I think it may be a little embarrassing that my two favorite gifts have to do with food...delicious, fattening food. You know me too well. *single tear*
