Author Notes: Cookies and Cream has always been my favorite ice cream and like all things, i tend to push the envelope with my ice cream flavors. So, as it were, the first recipe i made after i got my ice cream maker was Cookies and Cream made with a primitive Nutella base. I've sense perfected my recipe and it gets nothing short of rave reviews, with even my Mother-in-Law calling it "dangerous." - Ralkkai
