LAST WEEK I bought an ice cream maker! I have already made 5 different flavours. The first flavour I made was a caramel and popcorn concoction I put together.
I am not usually a massive fan of sweetened popcorn, but I used salted popcorn which made it much tastier (in my humble opinion).
First, I made a vanilla ice cream base:
1. 220ml milk
2. 450ml double cream
3. 100g vanilla (home) infused sugar
4. 1 tsp vanilla extract
I then made caramel using a can of condensed milk, 50g light muscovado sugar and 50g butter; heated and thickened on the stove for a few minutes until resembling caramel.
I added 4 tablespoons of the caramel to the vanilla base and started the ice cream maker to begin the big freeze for 45 minutes. 5 minutes before the end of the cycle, I added the popcorn and rest of the caramel.
It was so good that I made a second batch, and gave away 3 tubs to friends and family! 🍦
