    I love ice cream, so my favorites change with the seasons. My new favorite ice cream is Dreyers peanut butter cup.

  2. My favorite purchased ice cream is Graeter’s in Cincinnati, toffee chip. My favorite homemade is a close tie between fior di latte, which is a vanilla bean gelato, or Savannah buttermint, which is a recipe of Jenni’s from Columbus, Ohio. Ice cream is my greatest weakness ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. Michelle D

    Favorite ice cream is a tie between mint chocolate chip and peanut butter chocolate. Yum!!!

  4. Caity H.

    I can not for the life of me figure out how to subscribe to Picky Palate emails but I would love to!

  5. Brandy Lewis

    My favorite ice cream is the Blueberry and Vanilla Greek Frozen Yogurt with a Graham Cracker Swirl from Ben & Jerry’s

  6. megan

    My fave ice cream is anything homemade. If I had to choose a combo, it would be chocolate and peanut butter. Yum!

  7. Katie Pauline

    Vanilla & chocolate ice cream with caramel swirled through it! Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. Cheryl

    My favorite is Ben & Jerry’s late night snack…fudge covered potato chips, and a salty caramel swirl in vanilla ice cream!! I would love to make my own creations!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Jennifer

    I’m not sure I can pick one absolute favorite, but I’d say homemade raspberry ranks pretty darn near the top.

  10. Lonni Mooreland

    I subscribed to following your blog, I love it and all your recipes. Makes me want to BAKE all the time, but I have to use some self control otherwise I’d be 300 lbs.

  11. Corie

    I love any kind of chocolate ice cream. Rocky Road is one of my favorites. I also love pistachio ice cream

  12. sweetpumpkin

    My favorite kind of ice cream is black raspberry and chocolate chunks!! Although I would never turn down pumpkin, red velvet, shamrock explosion, carmel cashew, and pretty much any other flavor ๐Ÿ™‚ The cookbook looks like a lot of fun!

  13. Christina M

    My favorite kind of ice cream definitely would have to be Reeses Peanut Butter Cup or Chocolate Fudge Brownie. Can’t go wrong with either and taste AMAZING in the same bowl! Yummy!

  14. This looks amazing! We just bought an ice cream maker and I’ve been looking for fun recipes. Looks like I hit the jack pot with this one ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Brenna N.

    My favorite ice cream has always been any variety of chocolate–however, I think that this Milky Way ice cream will now be my favorite. ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Jean

    My favorite ice cream would have to be mint chocolate chip with hot fudge, whip cream and sprinkles on top!

  17. Cindy

    A creation from Great Lakes Brewery and Mitchell’s Ice Cream Shops: Great Lakes Christmas ale and gingersnap ice cream! UNBELIEVABLE! Only comes out once a year and sooo worth waiting for! Can’t wait for the Christmas season to start so I can stock up again!

  18. Kimberli

    Chocolate ice cream with just about anything mixed in, lately its been chocolate chips! Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. We are an ice cream eating family….almost nightly! Although a bit expensive and a once-in-awhile treat, I’d have to say my favorite is Ben and Jerry’s “Everything But The”….MMMmmmmm!

  20. Amanda

    My favorite kind of ice cream to buy us chocolate peanut butter cup. When I use my aunt’s ice cream maker, my favorite it peanut butter cup chocolate chip cookie chunk.

  21. christeen

    My favorite ice cream as a kid was Baskin Robbins Bubblegum. It was like getting two treats in one! Yummy.

  22. AND my favorite ice cream is either butter pecan or salted caramel pretzel. Can you tell I really want this?! I’ve been coveting that kitchenaid ice cream attachment for 3 years, but wouldn’t allow myself the splurge buy!

  23. Chatelaine

    Rocky Road……. but in Canada they have one called heavenly hash that doesn’t have marshmallows and I prefer that one!

  24. annabelle

    I love chocolate with more chocolate, or there is a ferrero rocher gelato in my hometown, yummy or caramelo gelato.

  25. Sandy Duke

    I love fresh strawberry ice cream. Not the pink kind. A nice vanilla base with chunks of strawberries in it.

  26. Lauren

    Really too many to pick just one favorite…but I really love homemade fresh banana ice cream.

  27. GAH! You’re trying to kill me, Jenny Flake…. Every time I start to get a TWINGE of motivation to lose the freaking 35 pounds thundering around on my thighs, I get an email from a beautiful blonde temptress who’s garnishing delectable desserts! ๐Ÿ˜€

  28. My favorite ice cream is vanilla with peanut butter swirl and chocolate swirl! Of course, said ice cream is sitting on top of a warm brownie and is then topped with chopped peanut butter cups and chocolate syrup!!!!

  29. Emily

    My favorite ice cream is Pistachio Almond, but it has to be from a little shop on the coast of Lake Michigan near Ludington! So good!

  30. Diane

    My favorite kind of ice cream is anything gelato; it’s soooo creamy smooth and refreshing. Yum, yum!

  31. My favorite ice cream flavor is probably black raspberry. I usually order it with peanut butter sauce on top because we’d go to this ice cream place as a kid that made their own ice cream and I could never decide between peanut butter cup ice cream and black raspberry. It tastes like a much better version of pb&j!

  32. Cortney B.

    Ben and Jerry’s Americone Dream! It has bits of chocolate covered waffle cone and caramel swirls in vanilla ice cream. It is so yummy!

  33. Sarah Q

    My favorite ice cream is pretty much ANY kind, but I’ve really been into Butter Pecan lately!

  34. Dina

    My favorite ice cream is euro tart frozen yogurt. I no that’s not the real thing but I just love it with berries and chocolate chips.

  35. Kristin

    I’m going to have to go with cookie dough, but there are SO many delicious varieties out there! Hard to pick!

  36. Cheryl Hopkins

    I love anything unique! Recently we made a Nutella gelato and a Kahluha Chip! Since my hubbies favorite candy is milky way! I am going to try this for sure.

  37. BreAnne Weston

    I am following you both on what I like to call the most amazing site – pinterest! :)How I found out about you two!

  38. Megan Jett

    My all time fave icecream is strawberry cheesecake! Don’t care what brand…they are all fabulous!

  39. BreAnne Weston

    Chocolate with peanut butter and oreos! It’s only 7 in the morning and I’m already craving it!

  40. Becky Chollet

    My favorite ice cream is any kind of ice cream that includes chocolate, nuts, and caramel!

  41. Maureen

    My favorite kind of ice cream would have to be plain old vanilla, but I always add berries or oreos or anything else I have around and top if off with a huge dollop of homemade whipped cream! I hope I win because I have wanted to make ice cream since I got my kitchenaid stand mixer for Christmas

  42. My favorite ice cream is the cotton candy ice cream at some little place near me. Totally worth moving back to NH just to be close to this place again!

  43. Janelle

    Depends on my mood, but generally peanut butter and chocolate is my favorite, or any variation on it.

  44. Julia

    My favorite ice cream is coffee with heath bar chunks and caramel. But mint chocolate chip is a very close second.

  45. Aimee

    I love Almond Joy ice cream but they no longer make it. This giveaway would give me the chance to make my own!

  46. Melissa

    Fave ice cream: pretty much anything Talenti Gelato, Ben and Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns (or Schweddy Balls — we got one precious pint and could never find another!), or Trader Joe’s Lemon and Triple Gingersnap

  47. First off, this looks amazing!!! Secondly, my favorite ice cream is a chocolate peanut butter ice cream…you know, the one with the CHUNKS of peanut butter, like at Baskin Robins! ๐Ÿ˜€ mmm! Thank you for the giveaway!

  48. Ilene

    Fav ice cream: anything with chocolate mix-ins and/or cookie dough, mint, etc! I love so many flavors!
