Super Hazelnut Spread Ice Cream

The flavors in the Chocolate Hazelnut spread seem to have developed even more overnight.  While I love the "nuttiness" of it, I think this would have been lacking had we not topped it with strawberries and whipped cream.

1 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup milk
1 1/3 cups heavy cream
2 tsp vanilla extract

In a blender, combine the spread and sugar until smooth. Add the milk. Blend on low speed until smooth and the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and the vanilla.  Place in your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions. Place in container and freeze until desired consistency.  Top with fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream.
