Richard Persimmons Ice Cream

To be completely honest, the only reason I bothered to make this ice cream is so I could call it Richard Persimmons Ice Cream.  It made me giggle when I thought about it so I wanted to do it.  I’ve always been fascinated by Persimmons and Richard Simmons for that matter.

Remember when I made the Duncan Hines vanilla frosting ice cream cake?  Well, I had some left over frosting mix and was debating what to do with it.  I usually have leftovers because I can’t throw anything away, thanks mom and dad, but it also forces me to be creative, thanks mom and dad.  I have worked in so many kitchens that just simply throw product away.  Drives me nuts, that’s throwing away money and says you’re not good at managing things.  Plus, so many positive and successful things have come from making mistakes and making it work.  That’s why my parents have been married for over 40 years and raised three wonderful guys.  It’s beautiful!!
