I pretty much say this every year but I’m going to say it again – I’m not a huge fan of Valentine’s Day. I mean, I suppose I’ll take any reason to cook a fun dinner for my sweetheart and eat extra chocolate. But I don’t need a fancy night out, flowers, jewelry, or any other gifts. Just give me the chocolate.
Speaking of chocolate – this Brownie Chunk Chocolate Frozen Yogurt has lots of it, making it an absolutely perfect dessert for you and your Valentine! Or for you and your Galentine’s Day party. Or for you, your cat/dog, and Netflix. Chocolate doesn’t judge.
I always forget how easy it is to make my own ice cream or frozen yogurt and then I make it and kick myself for not making it more often. Truly, this frozen yogurt is so, so easy. Aside from making the brownies, you just mix it all together and throw it in your ice cream maker and let it do all of the work. The hardest part is remembering to put the ice cream bowl in the freezer a day in advance, which is why I permanently keep mine in our deep freeze.
Like most homemade frozen yogurts, this one gets a little hard after being in the freezer for a day or two, even with the whole milk Greek yogurt. BUT before you go running back to the heavy whipping cream, hear me out. All you have to do to get super lush and creamy frozen yogurt is put it in the microwave for about 10 seconds and just like that, it gets a little melty and a lot creamy. It’s magical. Plus, the chewy brownie bites soften up a little and OMGosh it’s addicting.
Buuut back to that yogurt! Stonyfield just launched a new line of whole milk Greek yogurt that is out of this world. It’s not only super creamy and delicious, but packed with protein to keep you satisfied for, like, ever.
Since it is frozen yogurt, I kept the sugar pretty low, just 3/4 cup for the entire batch. I loved the contrast of the tangy chocolate frozen yogurt with the sweet and chewy brownie bites, but you could increase the sugar by 1/2 cup if you want it sweeter.
So let’s keep it casual this Valentine’s Day and get cozy in our PJ’s, and eat this frozen yogurt straight from the carton. Deal?
