Caramel swirl chocolate chip ice cream is my contribution to Ice Cream Week 2013. Come on in… Let’s have an ice cream social!
Let’s play Food Blog Jeopardy!
“I’d like “Scream Makers” for $500 please, Alex.”
Here’s the question:
It’s swirled, it’s creamy, and oh so dreamy.
“What is Caramel Swirl Chocolate Chip Ice Cream?”
*DING DING DING* You are correct!
Welcome to Ice Cream Week! Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina have teamed up with more than 20 of their blog friends to bring you a week full of ice cream treats! Prepare to have your taste buds tempted with some of the best ice cream treats around.
I used a whole vanilla bean in the base for this ice cream, giving it adorable flecks of flavor.
Of course, I needed a bit of chocolate in it too. Because, let’s be serious for a moment… it’s not possible for me to go without chocolate at some point in the day. And when I made this ice cream, I hadn’t ingested my daily dose yet. So there’s that.
Then I needed to swing this bad boy creamy goodness over the top of indulgence, so caramel sauce was an easy answer. Not just any caramel sauce, though… it’s home made caramel sauce.
You’ll receive no judgement from me if you decide to buy store bought caramel sauce. I just like to avoid extra chemicals when I can. I also think making caramel is fun!
Wait… Maybe you should enjoy your ice cream with a warm chocolate peanut butter cookie to reduce the risk of an ice cream headache coming on.
I hope you enjoy this caramel swirl chocolate chip ice cream!
