This Caramel Toffee Bits invention may be the best ice cream I have made yet, and I have made some EXCELLENT ice cream recently.

Caramel Toffee Bits Ice Cream

This flavor came about because of Inger; 0ur Norwegian friend in WestPort. She gave us the recipe for Five Of Hearts Waffles that are so pretty; made in the proper waffle iron. My sister, Susie sent me a new recipe by Inger a while back and I’ve been too distracted by life to get it posted.

I recently made Inger’s recipe for homemade caramel spread and…I finally got brave enough to try it out as an ice cream condiment. It’s REALLY good!! Especially when you add some Heath English toffee crunchy bits in with it. It reminds me of my old favorite ice cream flavor, Butter Brickle.

I’m still working on the ribboning effect. I’m discovering that getting those swirls of sauce in the ice cream is done after the ice cream is made and during the packing process before the final freeze. I haven’t opted to do this yet; so mine is just mixed into the ice cream and blended throughout.

I love the way this ice cream sets up. It remains creamy in the freezer, even after days in there! this is perfect because I HATE ice cream that is so hard my scoop can’t get through it without ejecting it all over my kitchen. This scoops firmly but with an almost custard creaminess that plays nice with my kitchen floor!

I’m having a blast playing with my new Cuisinart ice cream maker. The cute red one with a freezer bowl so I don’t have to churn it by hand.  I really like that part. The other part I like is that I’m now brave enough to try a few of my own creations out in it and so far they are REALLY good!

Here is my dream machine! I love it!


It’s so hot here right now! We are not used to heat in June. We hardly get heat at all in the summer; except this summer we are have a lovely hot spell that has NO end in sight! I’m really enjoying this heat and ice cream!

You’ll notice the ice cream looks a bit melty in the dish. Trying to take pictures of ice cream in this heat is currently beyond my meager camera skills (I take too long and ice cream can’t wait).  I promise to get better pictures when the weather cools down. For now….you get the idea! Enjoy playing in your ice cream and let me know how you like it!
