The idea or inspiration rather for this recipe came about out of the somewhat-persistent requests from my boyfriend.
There is this certain Valentine’s Day inspired (seasonal) flavor of ice cream which is only available during the month of February and maybe a few weeks later, it really all depends on how much inventory of this particular flavor of ice cream each store orders.
In case you are unfamiliar with the flavor and or ice cream shop, what I am referring to is Baskin Robbins’ famous Love Potion #31.
After reviewing the description and ingredient list I set off to procure everything I needed to come as close as possible to the original ice cream.
The ‘Raspberry Filled Candies’ threw me for a loop initially, but I managed to find these which come pretty close to the original.
I made a quart of this ice cream Saturday afternoon and let it sit in the freezer until Sunday before I took pics.
Honestly, I thought it would last a bit longer than it did. I figured after we all had some, there would be enough left over to take a bit to work and share with my co-workers. Well, I must report that as of this Tuesday night it is all gone. Finito…
It’s a good thing I bought a pound of those chocolate raspberry candies because it looks like I’ll be making this a few more times before a new flavor is requested.
Enjoy, and thanks so much for reading! x-j
