Burnt Caramel Ice Cream


Bold and intense, this is a pretty easy ice cream to make. No ice cream maker needed! Bold and intense, this is a pretty easy ice cream to make. No ice cream maker needed!
Number of Servings: 8


    2/3 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 cups whole milk
    1 cup heavy cream


Mix the milk and cream. Set aside

Caramelize sugar with salt in medium saucepan over medium low heat.

Add 1/2 of the milk and cream mixture. Simmer over low heat stirring often for about 10 to 12 minutes.

Add the rest of the cream mixture.

Chill in the fridge for a bit. Or, pour mixture in a metal bowl and stick it in the freezer. Every 20 minutes, stir vigorously with a fork, whip or hand held mixer.

This should have the consistency of soft serve.

Makes about 8 servings. It is insanely intense and bold so you don't need a huge serving to be satisfied. About 200 cal/serving,

    To caramelize the sugar, just add it to the pan with the salt. No water is needed. Heat the pan over medium heat. Watch and stir. The sugar will liquefy and as it continues to cook will start to brown. Here's the original recipe I used with pics:

    This is the best homemade icecream I have ever had. I quadrupled the recipe so it didn't turn out caramel, more like French vanila and took forever to set up. - 9/10/12

  • I'm going to make this for my mom for Mother's Day. This sounds wonderful. I hope I can restrict myself to one serving. I'll bet it would be good to add some cashews or other nuts too. Thanks so much for sharing. - 5/2/11

    It may make 10 servings which would bring the nutritional information down a little bit.
