Gooey salted caramel ice cream (392 calories per serve)


I remember many years ago when I tried my first salted caramel dessert. It absolutely blew my mind. I had no idea that a combination of salt and sweet could taste so good. Since then salted caramel has been one of my absolute favourite flavours so of course, I had to make it from scratch in my new ice cream machine.

The recipe below makes about 1L of ice cream.

Ingredients
Salted caramel
125g sugar
100ml thickened cream
15g butter, unsalted
1/2 tsp salt
Ice cream base
250ml milk
100g sugar
500ml thickened cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

First, make the salted caramel. In a pan, melt the butter and add the sugar on a medium-high heat. Stir until it has dissolved evenly then stop stirring and and let it bubble away for a few minutes until it turns an amber brown. Take off the heat and stir in the thickened cream and salt then place in fridge to let it cool.

In a large bowl, mix the sugar and milk until dissolves. Stir in the thickened cream, vanilla extract and about 80g of the cooled salted caramel and mix until dissolved. Depending on your ice cream maker, you may have to put this mixture back into the fridge to chill further before churning.

When the ice cream has finished churning, pour into your ice cream tray and whirl in some of the remaining caramel before freezing further.
