Halloween Funfetti Cake Batter Ice Cream
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/4 cup funfetti cake mix (I used a Halloween funfetti cake mix)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coconut rum
black and orange sprinkles

Making the Ice Cream
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together cream, milk, cake mix, sugar, salt, vanilla and rum until thoroughly combined.  Pour ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and run the machine for about 25-30 minutes.  When the ice cream is almost done churning, pour in sprinkles from the funfetti cake mix and let churn until the sprinkles are mixed throughout the ice cream.  Place ice cream in the freezer to finish freezing.

After about an hour, remove ice cream from freezer, scoop and garnish with Halloween sprinkles.  Enjoy!

Dark Chocolate Ice Cream
2 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 1/2 cups whole milk
8 oz bittersweet or dark baking chocolate, chopped
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup coffee liqueur
dark chocolate, chopped

Making the Ice Cream
In a small saucepan, combine 1 cup of the heavy cream with the chopped chocolate.  Stir the mixture over low heat until the chocolate is completely melted and combined with the cream.  Remove from heat and set aside to cool completely.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together remaining cream, milk, sugar, salt, vanilla and liqueur until sugar has dissolved.  Once the chocolate and cream mixture has cooled completely, whisk it into the remaining ice cream ingredients.  Pour ice cream mixture into your ice cream maker and run the machine for about 25-30 minutes or until the ice cream is formed.  Place ice cream in the freezer to finish freezing.

Once firm, remove ice cream from freezer, scoop and garnish with chopped dark chocolate.
