I am jealous.

I have wanted an ice cream maker for months. I have wanted to make flavors that would disgust anyone within 100 yards of me, like olive oil and gorgonzola ice cream.

But I love you guys so much that I wanted to give one to you instead of buying it for myself.


If it wasn’t for you, I would be sitting at home on my couch all day eating bonbons and flipping through Us Weekly with a green mask on my face. If it wasn’t for you, I’d also probably be in a smaller jeans size too, but what’s the fun in that?


You can win this Cuisinart Mix-It-In Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker.

Fully automatic ice cream maker—makes up to 1½ quarts of soft ice cream, yogurt, sorbet or sherbet in as little as 20 minutes. Mixes treats right into ice cream as it’s dispensed—choose one, two or all three. No chemicals, salt or ice required.


Even if you already have an ice cream maker, wouldn’t this make a fun gift for someone? Like me?


To Enter:

1.) Leave a comment telling me which ice cream flavor you’d love to make.

Are you plain vanilla? Peanut butter chocolate? I think it’s no secret that mine would include some form of bacon and chocolate. Perhaps like this?


For 2 extra entires:

2.) Follow How Sweet It Is on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway . Leave a comment letting me know you did so.

3.) Like How Sweet It Is on Facebook and post a link on Facebook to this giveaway. Leave a comment letting me know you did so.


Contest runs until tomorrow night, Sunday, June 13th at 8pm EST. :)

    There are so many recipes I would want to try and make, but first I would probably just make plain old vanilla to test it out.

    This machine looks awesome! I don’t have a particular favorite ice cream, except maybe oreo with huge oreo chunks. But my six kids would flip over this!

    I posted a link on Facebook- I haven’t ventured into tweeting yet. Darn!

    This was my post that accompanying your link.

    “Wouldn’t this be awesome?! I would love to have one sitting on my counter and pretend I am at the Sizzler watching my Father in Law stuff his pockets with free Jelly beans and candy, so he can put them in a recycled margarine dish, that sits by his lazy boy chair! Darn! I miss that man! :)”

    Yep because maybe it is not all about the ice cream flavor but what you put on it! Go candy! Plus we have a wonderful homemade fudge recipe and caramel recipe that are to die for!

    I’d go for a better version of the sweet potato soft serve I was making with my mini food processor…add some maple syrup perhaps…oooh or some vanilla and cinnamon to make kindof a french toast flavor and add some crumbled bacon on top?!!? For reals. wow that would be so good. Anyway- this is an awesome giveaway! :) fingers crossed (after I let go of the button on the mini food proc and eat my soft serve I’m about to go make.

    I love making homemade ice cream but have the one that requires all the ice and salt so we don’t make it very often. I’m partial to mint chocolate chip but I would really love to design some flavors.

    I’m a little traditional when it comes to ice cream – has to be chocolate, and have bits of treats in it – oreo cookies is a good fave, but also swirls of caramel… Or swirls of peanut butter with pretzel & chocolate bits… Yeah, anything along these lines :)
